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.

Purchased this cap a couple years ago and it's a great lighter weight wool cap, with a softer brim... Like the hat a lot and the color scheme looks great... This hat is different from the standard heavy weight wool broad cloth, so it can be worn on hotter summer days... Like the history behind it as well... If you are looking for a change, and a cap that is more comfortable in real warm weather, this hat delivers...
I bought this adjustable cap sale and have been very impressed by the quality and how great it looks. I don't normally leave reviews but Ebbets twisted my arm. In all seriousness, great product and I would go as far as to say that I would pay full price, given how nice this is.
I’ve wanted this hat for awhile and when it went on sale it was a no brained to order it. It’s at least my 10th ebbets hat. I can’t get enough. P.s. please do a cleveland buckeyes hat, so I can get one to match my field managers jacket
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.
