History: The 1951 Sooners won their first National Baseball Championship under legendary Oklahoma coach Jack Baer. The Sooners cruised through the tournament with a perfect 7-0 record. In the title game, they erased a 2-0 deficit in their 3-2 comeback victory over the favored Tennessee Volunteers to capture the Championship. With the Sooner football and wrestling teams capturing national titles as well, the University of Oklahoma became the first school to win three national titles in one school year. Boomer Sooner!

Don't just look at it, buy it. Compliments every time I wear it. Yes some people ask if it's Ohio State, but some people are dumb. Keep doing what you're doing Ebbets.
Love everything about the item, the experience, and Ebbets Field. The cap was back-ordered and, rather than the estimated 4 to 6 weeks for fulfillment, it took 2. The nostalgic white "O" on the flaming red wool speaks volumes. Wonderfully ambiguous and glaringly proud. This was the 1951 cap, when - according to the great copy on the web page - the Sooners won national titles in three sports. It would be five more years before running back Prentice Gautt became the first African-American to wear the Oklahoma colors. Such is the double-edged nature of nostalgia: The joy of looking back will necessitate the painful need to acknowledge. Thanks, Ebbets Field, for putting quality ahead of quantity, and authenticity ahead of impulse.
