When the Tigers decided to change the logo on their hat before the 2018 season, fans did the expected and freaked out.

The Tigers must have heard to the outcry, because they've decided to go back to the smaller version of the Olde English 'D' on their hats for the 2019 season. according to

The logo, one of the most iconic in professional sports, will not change. But the size of the logo, which did not resonate with the Tigers’ traditional generation of fans, will shrink to a size more consistent with the logo worn on  game caps prior to last season.

When asked about the game caps for the upcoming season on Friday afternoon, Tigers vice president of communications Ron Colangelo said, “Based on fan input, we made a slight adjustment to the size and positioning of the iconic Olde English ‘D’. We love the traditional look and we’re excited for the start of the upcoming season.”

Personally, I was a fan of the bigger 'D' on the hat -- although I know I was in the minority.

The Tigers open the 2019 regular season on the road against the Blue Jays on March 28, when the original Olde English 'D' will make its return.
