The only California League team playing in Los Angeles County, the Lancaster JetHawks are a Class A-Advanced affiliate of the troubled Houston Astros. The team plays up its aeronautical theme with a mascot named "Stealth" and a NASA F/A-18 Hornet mounted outside its stadium, which is called "The Hangar." The teams road hat makes our list because it is both striking and generic enough that it doesn't spark a lot of conversations. This is perhaps the greatest hat ever for the man who wants to wear a ball cap but doesn't want to talk about baseball. [$25; milbstore.com]
