League: Collegiate Baseball
History: Led by team pitching ace Dick Nen, the Cal State Long Beach 49ers posted a winning season (20-14) in 1960. Nen would become the first 49er to reach the Major Leagues since the team began play in 1954. The 49ers have been one of the most consistent winning teams in College Baseball over the years capturing 12 Conference Championships with at least one in each decade since 1960 and 4 College World Series appearances. Currently, the "Dirt Bags" (as they are more often referred to due to their gritty play and determination) are currently members of the Big West Conference and play their home games at Blair Field.

I am a hat collector. Very well made hat. Looks and feels great. Will buy more as I have my eye on a couple more.
Hat is perfect. Delivered quick and packaged beautifully
This hat is such a solid purchase. I knew what I was getting into but it has quickly replaced my painstakingly-curated hat collection and become an every day item for me. I’m not sure if it’s so much that “retro is in” or the timelessness of the fit, but I dress it up (wear it to work as a bar manager) and dress it down (with a t shirt and jeans) and it works amazingly both ways.
The customer service here is so awesome, I came back and bought the Jersey to match.
At first when I received the item it was a little stiff and the fit was a bit off. Once you the cap in it fits like a charm! The color combo is classic and sleek so you can really pair it with anything. The wool and satin lets you know its an Ebbets product. Outstanding quality. I will be making more purchases in the future! Go Beach!
