The mark of any baseball uniform is the cap. Sure, the jersey is all well and good, but wearing the sacred hat carries a sort of pride that most can only dream about.
I mean, come on. At introductory press conferences for new players, ever notice how the hat is usually put on last?
Perhaps it's because people view it as the best. Either way, players like Ken Griffey Jr. turned a simple piece of clothing into something just plain awesome and made owning baseball caps, for some young children, a borderline obsession.
Yet, the hat serves a purpose besides panache. With some players on the wrong side of balding, the cap serves as not only a cool part of the uniform, but as something to keep some fans from going blind out of fright.
That said, time to buck up and look at some players who look way better with their hats on.
