Cliff Mapes led the league in RBIs, and Kansas City led the AA in attendance, with over 379,000 fans going through the turnstiles at Blues Stadium, later renamed Municipal Stadium rebuilt for the arrival of the Athletics from Philadelphia. Rookie Mickey Mantle was briefly sent down to KC in 1951 when he got off to a slow start at the plate in New York.

Greatly Appreciated

My step-father’s uncle, Carl DeRose, wore this cap when he pitched the first perfect game in American Association history for the Blues in 1947.

Best hats ever

I purchased this hat just in time for the cold weather and it has been amazing. The thick wool is not only comfortable but it keeps my head warm and the fit is perfect. It gets better and better every day.

Awesome cap! Just one change/tweak.

These hats are the real deal, baby! Materials, construction, fit. The only recommendation/tweak (and I now have three of them) is that the white tag in the back needs to be moved/sewn higher up so the dark brim is interrupted around the back. Yes, I'm one of those guys who wears his hat(s) backwards. My wife was able to cut the threads and remove the tag, but it was a huge hassle.

Beautiful hat

My wife's great-grandfather played for the Blues in the 1930's, so I had to get this one. Such a good-looking hat. There's nothing quite like an Ebbets wool ballcap.
