It is great that the Royals are wearing a tribute patch this year for Ace, but the design of the patch is lacking. I know it is a memorial but that doesn’t mean it has to look bad. I came up with this simple heart and crown design with Ace or 30 in the center of the heart. I mocked up the patch on a gray and blue uniform and on the outfield mural.

I think the Royals should wear a special tribute hat to honor the life of Yordano Ventura to start the season. I think that this gesture will show the love the team and city have for Yordano.
The basic idea is to remove the KC from the BP hat and replace it with Y V with the crown over the top.
If you want make this happen RT it to the Royals. Who knows they might do it.
Clap Clap Clap Clap Clap
I like it a lot
I will be buying one in a size 7 5/8 as soon as they come out
If you want a full 360 view there are several sites that have pics of all sides and all teams. I stole this pic from the internet.
I like that the hat is still 100% blue, I like the AZ logo, I like the Crown
Only thing that could be added is a World Series Champs Patch for this year.
Tweaks for the next one.
I like that this hat kept the KC on the front but for the next version or an ALT version I think a Larger stand alone crown could be a cool look with the KC built into the crown. I also think that if this is going to be a spring training only hat that the patches on the side could be moved to the back replacing the mlb patch or adding a cactus league logo instead of the road sign.
All in all I think MLB did a great job on this hat and a few of the new hats.
I will be buying more than one more than likely
