History: GO ET 'EM GOAT!

Snippets of the 1928 Navy Midshipmen baseball team by position, as described in the US Naval Academy Luck Bag yearbook:

"In the infield Jerry Miller, Captain-elect for 1929, at first base was the big gun. 'Rebel' Lowrance solved the third base problem very efficiently. The battle for the short field for a while was hotly contested between Millican and Stroh, but Stroh sprinted near the end of the season and finished in that berth.

In the outfield we had Genter, Lampe, and Porter, all youngsters playing their first varsity ball. Genter was outstanding and the find of the season - a ballhawk who packed a timely wallop! Gubbins and Hicks divided the backstopping duties. Both were fast, able men with throwing arms which cut down many unwary base runners.

The 1928 squad would finish with a 6-9-2 record (2 ties!) including a last game loss to bitter rival Army."

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.
