League: Prison Team

History: The small frontier town of Rawlins, Wyoming was home to one of baseball’s strangest stories. It was decided to form a prison baseball team, which included some of Wyoming’s most hardened criminals. Prison ball teams were not unusual, however the WSP team was promised reduced sentences and even commutation of execution for good play. Unfortunate prisoners who committed errors or otherwise failed to perform were threatened with added time to their sentences. After four consecutive lopsided wins, the “Cons” were disbanded and the baseball team replaced with an education program for the prisoners.

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.
