The look of new Biscuits lid - available to fans, not to worn in games.

Butter up! The Rays always creative-thinking Double-A Montgomery Biscuits team decided to hold a "Design A Hat" contest and came up with quite the winner.

Chicago-based artist Jesse Alkire's "Biscuit Lid" design was chosen in a fan vote of five finalists, and it certainly is eye-catching - and flaky, buttery, and maybe even a bit mouth-watering.

The pictures do much better than any words, but here is how the Biscuits tried:

"The hat features orange and yellow layers resembling a biscuit, with butter separating the layers. Alkire described the hat as "baseball's first hat design fresh baked to look like a fluffy biscuit." The layering also resembles the classic pillbox style hat, a throwback style popularized in the early 20th century and again in the 1970's.''

The new hat - which, Rays minor leaguers will be happy to know won't be worn on the field - will be available on biscuitsbaseball.com and at the team store, with pre-order opportunities available soon.
