The baseball cap in America has its origin, at that time the cap was worn by baseball players. A typical baseball cap is a larger visor that protects the eyes from the sun and the absorbent headband that is sewn into the inside of the baseball cap. While playing baseball, the large visor of the cap protects you from shocks at the same time. Nowadays, baseball players no longer wear baseball caps, but they are used in uniforms, sportswear or leisure accessories .
For maximum comfort and a perfect fit baseball caps have adjustable caps attached to the back of the baseball cap. If snaps are used for this purpose, this baseball cap is called a "Snapback". Other baseball cap size adjustment systems are velcro and clip closures.
Baseball caps are often made of cotton or linen, less often of leather, straw or hemp.
Some baseball caps have a removable neck guard that attaches to the cap with a velcro closure. The neck guard, for example, prevents sunburn on the neck. In addition, baseball caps with removable neck protectors are equipped with UV filters to protect you from the sun's harmful rays.
A baseball cap can be worn both with the visor in front and with the visor at the back.
In the 70s and 80s, the baseball cap became a trend among young Europeans. Baseball caps were worn almost exclusively by young people with the visor in the back. Later on, the baseball cap replaced the beret, for example, as part of institutional uniforms. Today, the baseball cap is still popular for sports, but also as a popular leisure accessory.
