History: The ChiFeds were christened the "Whales" in 1915, their third season. Owner Charles Weeghman was determined to outdo the rival Cubs and White Sox, and built a state-of-the-art ballpark on the North Side named after himself (of course). In the settlement that ended the Federal League, Weeghman was allowed to purchase the Cubs and move them into his ballpark, eventually re-named Wrigley Field. The Whales brought the FL pennant home in 1915, the Feds' last season. This is an 8-panel cap.

This cap is awesome. the 8 panel fit is super comfortable and the shorter bill makes it like a top of the line super cycling cap. Thanks Ebbets!
Bought this cap as a gift for my cousin who is living and working in Chicago for 2 years (he's from Australia) He absolutely loved it!
Wonderfull cap with vintage style
I am incredibly pleased with my cap and would recommend it to anyone looking for a high quality ball cap with authentic styling, feel, and craftsmanship. Be aware of the narrower bill and smaller crown when buying this cap (but don’t let this deter you because this is a sweet cap that merits compliments whenever I wear it). I am eagerly looking for my next acquisition from EFF. Keep doing what your doing Ebbets Field
