That's only because they wouldn't be caught dead wearing a Mets cap. Nobody respects it.

It's kinda funny to me reading that news link 'cause it seems like they are oblivious and naive to the presence of Yankees caps in the "hood." LA Dodger caps (the simple, recognizeable "LA" logo) are the same way too. I agree Streetballer, it is also about math, people wear Yankees caps.

I'm a fan of both teams but I would prefer a Yankee cap whenever I play baseball. Generally for design, I just think the Yankees logo looks better. It simply represents NY and looks more familiar and more nationally popular than Mets. Its the same with in Los Angeles, Hood prefers to wear LA Dodgers caps over Angels since Angels logo is just an A while Dodgers is LA. Yankees are chosen over Mets simply because of location. Yankee Stadium is located in South Bronx which is the birthplace of hip hop. These 'thug' types are embedded in the culture of hip hop, rap, graffiti and drugs. Plus, Harlem is just a walk across the bridge.

It's stupid, people wear caps to show where they're from. Obviously people IN New York wear Yankees caps, regardless for their love of the team and/or sport. I, however always rock a Phillies cap!

so Whitey Ford, Yogi Berra, etc etc are were criminals. Raecino has it correctly. Big cities often have crime and denizens of big cities wear hats of the home teams. The same thing could be said for LA- Did Roy Campanilla inspire criminals? Sandy Koufax?

I wouldn't read too much into the hats-- well those who wear Met's Hats are masochists- they love to be beaten.

NY Yankees caps are common thug/hip hop apparel even outside of NYC.

I've noticed the people who go out of their way to wear the blue LA Dodgers hats look like they might be doing it out of possible gang affiliation too.
