Fitted baseball caps, those without an adjuster, are normally sewn in six sections, and may be topped with a matching fabric-covered button on the crown. Metal grommets or fabric eyelets are often sewn or attached near the top of each of the six sections.
Baseball caps are made of many types of material and shaped in various styles for different purposes. Major and minor league baseball players wear classic-style caps made of wool (or, more recently, polyester) with their team’s simple logo and colors; the logo is usually embroidered into the fabric.
A few different styles
Formerly, baseball caps only came in standard hat sizes. Since the early 70’s, they have also been available in a one-size-fits-all form, with an adjustment strap in the back. The style, commonly called snapback, has become increasingly popular as fashion accessories. Advances in textiles have led to the “stretch-fit” hat, which uses Lycra or rubber to allow a hat to have a fitted style while still being “adjustable” within sizes.
