League: Barnstorming Team

History: The Sioux City Ghosts were a touring Black fast-pitch softball team with origins in a boys club in the African-American West 7th Street neighborhood during the 1920s. The prowess of the team soon made them one of the top touring attractions during the Great Depression, along with teams like the House of David and Harlem Globetrotters. After becoming widely known in the Midwest, the team toured California, the West, and Canada. As entertainment was an integral part of the appeal of these barnstorming teams, the Ghosts relied on comedy routines and displays of baseball skill like "Shadowball" to widen their appeal.

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.
