History: Since taking over the helm as the head coach of the Golden Bears baseball team in 1930, California baseball legend Clint Evans and the baseball boys of Berkeley would go on to win 9 C.I.B.A (California Intercollegiate Baseball Association) championships before winning the very first College World Series played in 1947 over the Yale Bulldogs. Another first for CAL was playing in the first intercollegiate baseball game played on the west coast when they took on the College of the Pacific on November 6th, 1886 and played to an 11-11 tie when the game was called on account of darkness (27 years after the first intercollegiate game played by Williams College and Amherst in Pittsfield, Mass. in 1859). The California Golden Bears are members of the Pac-12 Conference and currently play their home games at Evans Diamond Stadium in Berkeley, California on the Campus of the University of California.

Amazing Cap

No BS with this cap--can't go wrong with the satin or wool fabrics on my noggin'. It's breathable when its warm, and warm when its cold; that's what makes wool special. It's nice for a place like the Bay Area that throws fog and then a full blast of California sunshine within a few hours. The colors match the Cal color scheme wonderfully, and the picture rather flattens the vibrancy and saturation of the navy wool and golden felt 'C'--don't worry, the colors are spot on to the Cal caps they sell on Telegraph. This hat fits me like a glove and is the most comfortable hat I've ever owned (comparing to Goorin Bros or that '47 brand they sell on campus, among other haberdashery outfits). It's expensive, but the quality is SO good! I love that these caps only have a golden 'C,' and none of the other BS logos sprinkled on like usual college caps are infamous for. Quality needs no logos to show off, only design and structure that speaks for itself, and Ebbets knows it--and now, so do I! I love this hat!

Go Bears

Navy wool and gold felt C is a classic combination. And like the description says, know that the visor is soft and not like a typical visor. Great quality, terrific hat. Go Bears!
