League: Pacific Coast League

History: By 1956, the Pacific Coast League was officially classified as "Open", with a plan in place to be eventually certified as a major league. However rumblings about MLB clubs moving West were already being heard, and in two years the Dodgers and Giants would dash the dreams of the PCL to be a major league by taking their two largest territories. The Padres continued on in the AAA PCL until a National League expansion franchise of the same name was granted for the 1969 season. The PCL Padres played in Lane Field, on San Diego's waterfront.

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.
