History: Sandwiched between Big Nine Conference (now the Big Ten) championships in 1946 and 1950, 1949 was a notable low-point for the Badgers. Under head coach Arthur Mansfield University of Wisconsin Baseball had an overall record of 8-17, going 3-9 in conference play in ’49 before a significant rebound the following year. The 1950 team went 9-3 during the season, winning their conference and making the program’s lone trip to the College World Series (so far).
This ballcap is currently only available as an adjustable.
