League: Middle Atlantic League

History: Dayton was affiliated with the Brooklyn Dodgers and managed by Howard “Ducky” Holmes. The Ducks finished second in the MAL standings, 1 ½ games behind the Charleston Senators. Interestingly, a young outfielder by the name of Walter Alston led the league in home runs and RBIs, playing for Springfield in the Cardinals organization. Although Alston would famously go on to manage the Dodgers for twenty-three seasons, his MLB playing career consisted of a single at-bat for the Cards in 1936.

Measuring Guide

We offer three kinds of ballcap visors:

Pre-1940 ballcaps were made with soft visors so players could fold them up and put them in their back pockets. Later visors were done in standard (stiff visor) or short (also a soft visor). Check the product details to see which type of visor each cap has.
