NEW YORK (AP) - Major league teams will have new batting practice caps this year, many with two or three colors and some with nontraditional logos.

Among the designs are caps featuring the Cincinnati Reds' mascot Mr. Redlegs, Mr. Met, the Oakland Athletics' elephant and the Colorado Rockies' mountain logo. The Toronto Blue Jays have a maple leaf.

The league apparently is hoping the new caps spark additional sales to fans.

Most teams had used the previous cap model for three seasons.
