Ist of I'm a old school baseball player. As a little guy my in my mind Ted Williams was my best friend. I became him everytime I came to the plate. I became such agreat hitter I fell in love with baseball in black in white. Well while growing up a coach name Chet Brewer introduced me to ***** Baseball and I fell in love with baseball all over again, but this time in tec-color. I met a life time of friends ***** player that have past on. I was able to meet, alot of great men. And in order for me to keep telling their story I wear your gear.

Classic ball cap. Wore it to Nationals Park recently and met a guy whose great grandfather played for the Grays.
I love this hat. “What does the G stand for?” has been a great conversation starter for my fascination with the ***** league baseball history. My last name is also Gray, so im working to build a collection of Grays pieces.
Outstanding workmanship on this hat! A rare classic. I have nothing bad to say about this hat at all. And of all the fitted caps I got this year (several) this was the only one that actually fit perfectly when it arrived.
