Here on Throwback Thursday, we have talked about baseball caps in depth before.
But today, in the twilight of American Independence Day (July 4), and, lest you forget, also in the wake of Canada Day (July 1), we shall discuss one very special kind of baseball cap:
The Stars And Stripes Hat.
The “Stars And Stripes Hat” is the official name given to a particular tribute edition of New Era 59FIFTY on-field baseball caps, introduced in 2008, which typically* feature a design encompassing Betsy Ross’s claim-to-fame, the good ol’ Old Glory. The caps are worn by all teams on Memorial Day and Independence Day, and the Blue Jays also sport their caps, which typically* feature the Maple Leaf, on Canada Day as well.
