Baseball hats have come a long way since being made out of straw in the 1800s. Nowadays, everyone wears a baseball cap, just about anywhere in the world. Some rock them for style. Others do it for function. Whatever the reason, baseball hats are a staple of sports fandom.
Wearing Major League Baseball team colors and logos on a hat lets other fans know where you stand and (to a certain extent) how you feel about the current state of your squad. Mainstream representation gives teams massive amounts of visibility, which can translate into merchandise sales and perhaps a better product on the field.
The pop culture relevance of a team even matters today for free agents. Players have to envision themselves in a hat and love that feeling.
So how is your major league team's hat looking these days?
