League: American Association
History: It took three different managers, but the original Brewers won the regular season American Association title in ’52 with a 101-53 record, twelve games ahead of second-place Kansas City. Milwaukee Pitcher Don Liddle led the league in strikeouts, ERA, and winning percentage. The Brewers would be gone the following season, making way for the Boston Braves’ move to Milwaukee, but Liddle would stay put and pitch for the Braves in ’53. Liddle’s biggest claim to fame, however, would be as a member of the New York Giants in the 1954 World Series, when he threw the pitch to Vic Wertz that resulted in “The Catch” by Willie Mays.

Looks like it may be sized a touch bigger than other hats of the size i have bought, but i am open to the possibility that my head shrank.
Fantastic hat, fits true to size. Very comfortable to wear. It feels like a real baseball cap; a welcome change from the polyester mass produced product that New Era is selling. The green under-bill is a nice touch. This cap was definitely made with attention to detail. I will purchase again from Ebbets Field Flannels in the future!
It's simply the finest Milwaukee Brewers hat on the market. The colors and craftsmanship are absolutely beautiful. It's a joy to wear.
Fantastic hat at an even better price. I was impressed with how fast the order was filled and delivered. I had heard good commentary about the gear and service was from this company. I am happy to say hee was “spot on.”
Can’t recommend it enough, feels terrific quality, and after breaking the bill in a little bit it looks perfect. I have a huuuuge head and the adjustable strap is pushed almost to the limit, but it’s comfortable and still looks great.
