Arizona Diamondbacks 2001 WORLD SERIES New Era 59Fifty Fitted Hat (Gray Under Brim)
By New Era Cap
Arizona Diamondbacks New Era 59Fifty Fitted hat is done in the old school team colors of Black Metallic Copper and Purple with a Gray under brim, White inside lining and 2001 World Series Side Patch. This was the first World Series ever played in the state of Arizona and the Mountain Time Zone. With the All-Star Game format change in 2003, the World Series would not open in the city of the National League champion again until 2010. This was the last World Series not to feature a wild card team until 2008. This was also the first World Series to end in November, due to the delay in the regular season after the September 11 attacks. With the win by the Diamondbacks, the franchise became the first World Series champions from a Far West state other than California and the first major professional sports team to win a title in the State of Arizona. Randy Johnson and Curt Schilling were the co-MVPs of the 2001 World Series, combining for a 4–0 record and a 1.40 ERA and striking out 45 Yankees in 38 2⁄3 innings.
