League: California Winter League

History: The California Winter League was a semi-pro circuit consisting of company-sponsored teams in Southern California. The Merchants took part in the famous "Flu Mask Game" vs. Standard Oil on January 26th, 1919. After a second wave of Spanish Influenza broke out the city of Pasadena issued a strict mask ordinance on January  18th. Both teams as well as umpires ands managers wore flu masks for the game, which was won by Standard Oil in extra innings. The league played very high-level baseball, and Pasadena's squad included at least seven major leaguers, including Frank Shellenback of the White Sox and Cincinnati's Red Killifer. Among the top players for Standard Oil were Doc Crandall from the Yankees and Chick Gandil of the White Sox.

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.
