History: Identifying this team was one of the biggest research challenges we ever faced. We initially thought the logo looked like a petroglyph. A few customers guessed the Necaxa Electrisistas. But thank to an intrepid customer, it turns out that the team was in fact the Heroico Colegio Militar, one of Mexico's most prestigious military academies, which was founded in 1827. Many of the early top Mexican baseball teams were from military or civil service organizations.

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.
