History: Although Jackie Robinson broke the Organized baseball color barrier with Montreal in 1946, it was actually fellow-Dodger signee pitcher Don Newcombe who became the first African-American player on a US-based team. Newcombe had starred with the Newark Eagles of the Negro National League and stayed with Nashua until 1947 when he was promoted to Montreal. Newk debuted for Brooklyn on May 20, 1949, and went on to a great career with a lifetime 153-96 record and 3.54 ERA.

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.
