Description

This baseball cap was created to honor and pay tribute to the Negro Leagues. 


The Negro Leagues were a series of professional baseball leagues that were mostly made up of African American players, as well as some Latin-American players. They operated primarily in the United States from the early 20th century until the late 1940s. These leagues were created in response to the exclusionary policies of Major League Baseball (MLB), which barred players of African descent from playing in the league due to racial segregation laws and norms that were widespread in the country at that time.

One of the most important baseball leagues in history was the Negro National League (NNL), which was founded in 1920 by Rube Foster. Foster was a former player, manager, and owner widely regarded as one of the greatest baseball minds ever. The Negro American League was established in 1937. These leagues provided a platform for some of the most talented and influential baseball players of any era, including Satchel Paige, Josh Gibson, Cool Papa Bell, and many others. Despite facing significant racial discrimination and social obstacles, these players displayed remarkable skill, sportsmanship, and resilience.

The Negro Leagues played a crucial role in the development of baseball and the broader context of America's social history. These leagues challenged racial barriers and provided a source of pride and achievement for African American communities. Apart from their athletic significance, they served as a vital institution within Black society, offering economic opportunities and entertainment. The legacy of the Negro Leagues is celebrated for its impact on the game of baseball, including its influence on the eventual integration of Major League Baseball that started with Jackie Robinson breaking the color barrier in 1947.


The cap is made from a superior wool blend that provides a high level of comfort and durability. All designs are embroidered on the front, back, and sides. For those concerned about fit, the adjustable velcro back ensures that the cap can comfortably accommodate various head sizes. This thoughtful design element means the cap stays snug and comfortable all day, whether at a game or simply out and about.

Care for this cap is straightforward but important for maintaining its pristine condition. It should be hand-washed in cold water using a mild detergent. To avoid any potential damage, do not bleach the cap, and instead of machine drying, air dry it away from direct sunlight to preserve the fabric's integrity and color.
