History: American League President Ban Johnson sent a team of stars led by Red Sox third-baseman Herb Hunter. The team included Casey Stengel, Waite Hoyte, and George Kelley on a goodwill tour of Japan in 1922. The American professionals dominated their Japanese opposition and were accused of bad sportsmanship by the Japanese for throwing away a game to the amateur Mita team.

The Hat is Awesome, the Fit is Off
I love the hat. The materials and construction are really fantastic, but even though I measured my head and compared to the sizing chart online, the hat is much smaller than I thought it would be. I'd recommend sizing up or going with the adjustable model.
