Baseball cap history
At first, baseball caps were not accepted in people’s lives. They were considered as special items for athletes. In 1839, the first ever baseball game was held in Gupas Town, New York, USA. In 1860, professional baseball players began to appear in the United States. In 1871, the United States established the “National Professional Baseball Players Organization”; in 1876, the organization was renamed the “American Baseball Federation.” In 1881, another national professional baseball organization was established, later the “National Professional Baseball Federation”. In 1884, the championship game between these two organizations was held for the first time, the “World Baseball Championship.”
Since then, in 1910, then US President William Howard Taft (William Howard Taft) formally approved baseball as the “national ball” of the United States. And because of this, baseball caps have also become popular in various baseball teams. At first, the players only used to block the sun. Later, regardless of rain or shine, people will wear baseball caps as long as they play.
Baseball was introduced to Japan from the United States in 1873. The Japanese professional baseball team was founded in 1934. Baseball caps have also been introduced to the Japanese baseball team. After the Second World War, baseball sports quickly developed in various European countries.
Baseball has been carried out in more than 100 countries and regions on the five continents of the world. Baseball caps became popular all over the world, but they were limited to baseball players. People did not regard baseball caps as daily necessities. Baseball caps became the iconic decoration of baseball players at that time.
