I've wanted this hat for far too long so when I finally bought one I wasn't let down. I was, and still am, blown away by the quality of the hat. Plus the fitted 73/8 option fits me perfectly. Now when people look at me they say, "there goes Ryan in his Ebbets Field Flannel, the best ballcap there ever was."
Great cap inspired by a great film .
Great item, great look, gets fun reactions, helps separate the real baseball fans ("I love 'The Natural' -- cool cap!") from the pretenders ("Nice cap -- Let's Go Mets!").
This hat is amazing!
I know some fans of the novel weren't overly thrilled with the film adaptation and that's fine. I however, loved it. It of course, wasn't perfect. Some people can say that Redford's bat grip was suspect, but no film of an event (real or otherwise) can ever be 100% accurate. But I digress. This cap is beautifully made and will be a must own for any serious fan of the film.I prefer the fitted caps, the adjustable never really did it for me. Plus, if it's the same price as a fitted one, why not get the size you can wear? Perhaps someday I can afford the Knights jacket. Definitely worth it.
