History: Milton Hershey built his own sugar mill in Cuba in 1918 to supply his candy factory with sugar. However unlike many American businesses, who merely exploited the land and Cuba's workers, Hershey built his own railroad and provided his workers with health care, schools, and leisure pursuits, including an excellent baseball team which played in the National Amateur League. Although the town was abandoned after the Revolution, you can still ride the electric Hershey railroad from Havana to Matanzas, 57 miles to the east.

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.
