The Definitive Sarge Matthews Hat Collection (Part II)
Posted by at 10:20 am ET 42 Comments

Back in May of ’08, The Fightins proved their love for Phillies color commentator Gary “Sarge” Matthews by debuting The Definitive Sarge Matthews Hat Collection. It was pretty much the greatest blog post of the year, and set us apart as the biggest Sarge fans on Earth. We even have a section of Sarge’s wiki page giving us propers for outing him as such a big hat enthusiast.

And because we continue to grow as a site and don’t rely on the same gimmicks year-after-year, I kind of shied away from posting about Sarge’s hats recently. That doesn’t mean I still don’t marvel at Sarge’s ability to match his Kangols perfectly with his broadcasting attire, because I do, I just thought it could get a bit tiresome and wear out some of the Sarge Hat appeal.

Well, I can’t take it any longer. So we are proud to present to you this EXXXCLUSIVE of every single hat/cap/fedora that Sarge has sported this year in chronological order. All 95 of them.

Tell ‘em, slideshow:

After the jump, I’ve gone ahead and tallied up how many times Sarge has worn each cap so you can get a sense of which ones are his favorites. Believe me, it was my pleasure.

Which hats did Sarge wear most frequently? I’m glad you asked:

  • Navy Kangol: 18
  • Sky Blue Kangol: 13
  • Baby Blue Kangol: 9
  • Red Kangol: 9
  • Sarge Father’s Day Cap giveaway from ’10: 6
  • Tan fedora: 6
  • Sarge signature New Era jeff cap: 5
  • Sarge signature New Era fedora: 4
  • Black Kangol: 3
  • Black fedora w/ brown stripe: 3
  • Tan Kangol: 3
  • Lime Green Kangol: 2
  • Navy fedora w/ white stripe: 2
  • Straw hat: 2
  • Unidentified brown jeff cap: 1
  • Maroon Kangol: 1
  • Black fedora w/ brown stripe: 1
  • Brown Kangol: 1
  • Grey Kangol: 1
  • Philadelphia Stars Negro League cap: 1
  • Black Kangol w/ white stripes: 1
  • White Kangol: 1
  • White Phillies cap: 1
  • Powder Blue Phillies Cap giveaway from ’11: 1

This post would’ve never happened if it weren’t for the painstakingly long process of screen-capping each Sarge pre-game and/or booth appearance this season done by our very own @Petzrawr. The least you could do is follow him on twitter and say thanks.

    Game over. This is incredible.

  2. Cole Handsome says:

    I remember the clip you had of when T-Mac asked Sarge about how many hats he owned. Sarge was so embarrassed. It was almost as funny as when Wheels pretends that doesn’t know what Twitter is.

  3. Wheels is full of shit. Uncle Charlie, however, doesn’t know what Twitter is.

  4. Amandah says:

    Amazing that he wears that many hats yet he NEVER wears a jimmy cap on his chocolate kielbasa.



  5. buzzkill_ed says:

    I laughed. I cried.

  6. Jupiter's Rings says:

    My hat-boner was quickly put to sleep by TMac’s byoobs.

  7. BroadnPattison08 says:

    By Sarge’s facial expressions he is thinking “Tom you are an Idiot” in every photo

  8. DAVE says:

    TMac’s titties are almost as fun to track in these pictures. Also, look out for some great McCarthy FUPA shots. Like this one:

    What a disgusting human being.

  9. As Well says:

    Pure brilliance.

  10. Joe D says:

    Beautifully disturbing.

  11. FirstTimer says:

    i want that Sarge signature New Era fedora. Like Bad.

  12. Franny Murt says:

    I’ll bet Sarge shops here because they “fit criminal to clergy.”

  13. miss bee says:

    i want to see sarge’s hat closet. this is amazing.

  14. Gabrielle says:

    This post is EXACTLY why I need The Fightins back in my life. Thank you.

  15. chilly says:

    it really is posts like this on off days that make thefightins a great site. here’s to more good content so one day you can sell it off to some media conglomerate and make a shit load of money only to then come up with a new, better blog somewhere else!

  16. Lynniemac says:

    You just made what feels like the 300th off day in a row slightly tolerable. The shakes are a little less severe. Thank you.

  17. zims says:

    uh, im from North Carolina and ’round here we call ‘sky’ blue and ‘baby’ blue the same thing: Carolina Blue

  18. RickyOtero says:

    PHENOMENAL. p.s. it looks like Sarge is going to slap the fuck out of Tom in half of these pics

  19. Danyiel says:

    <3 Sarge. Beautiful!

  20. Defenestrate Wheels says:

    Is Sarge by any chance an ordaned minister? I would love for him to marry me to some unlucky woman.

  21. Chutley says:

    Mcarthy’s tits were just too disgusting and distracting for me to finish the whole thing.

  22. maria says:

    The slideshow to end all slideshows. The amount of time that went into this is somewhat disturbing, but absolutely appreciated.

  23. Amazing. My favorite one was 1-95.

  24. Schrammykins says:

    This is like, TMac tit porn.

  25. MarkM625 says:

    Seems like a waste of time.

    Just fucking kidding!

  26. bobdobbs says:

    Continued Success

  27. BakedMcBride says:

    This is tremendous. I’ve always read for the archival research. Now we need to figure out the corresponding record for each of these hats and send it over to crashburnalley so we can graph the results. (I know, a hat’s W-L record doesn’t tell the whole story, but still …)

  28. philtrum says:

    i feel bad for fans of other teams who don’t get in depth analysis like this.

    i am blown away

  29. Nino Espinosa says:

    First the Chooch article in SI, and now this…I have been weepy for days.

  30. stinkbug says:

    ahahahah VIDEO: Tom McCarthy humbled by induction into Trenton Baseball Hall of Fame

  31. thom says:

    in the second half, can we track wins/losses with sarge’s styles?
    otherwise this is f’n awesome
