Red Sox look to build better star relationships with limited-edition Rafael Devers cap

Cap is being worn by various people around the team, but there are no plans to make more for a public saleeBay

The Red Sox earlier this month produced a "limited-edition cap" for 3B Rafael Devers as a way to "get better at building relationships with star players," according to Peter Abraham of the BOSTON GLOBE. The cap is "red with his nickname -- Carita -- across the front in white script with a Red Sox logo." Devers' No. 11 is "on one side" and the Dominican flag is "under the brim." The cap is "being worn by various people around the team." But one staffer said there are "no plans to make more for a public sale." Abraham: "Why not?" It is a "unique item" and it is "hard to see any teammate being offended by Devers being singled out." Abraham: "Why not promote a star player? Make him feel valued and special." That is something the Red Sox "botched with Mookie Betts" and are "in the process of botching with Xander Bogaerts" (BOSTON GLOBE, 5/15).
