Baseball team hats are not only "baseball caps". Your
favorite team logo can be printed, embroidered, or embellished in some other manner
onto a wide variety of headwear styles. You can even add a team logo onto
a cowboy hat. However, the most common sports team hat for baseball is the
actual baseball cap style. And the most popular team logo for such a hat would
be the New York Yankees.
A baseball cap is a type of soft cap with a rounded crown
and a stiff peak projecting in front. The front of the cap typically contains designs
or logos of sports teams (namely baseball teams, or names of relevant companies,
when used as a commercial marketing technique).
Yankees baseball hats typically have the team logo.
About the New York Yankees Logo
Throughout much of their tenure as the Highlanders, the
logo was variations of a stylized N and Y, which lay separately on either side
of the jersey's breast. In 1905, the two locked for one season, but not in the
way used today. It wasn't until 1909 that the team changed to the familiar
interlocking NY that would be the team logo long after the team became known as
the Yankees, and would continue to be the cap insignia until today. The
interlocking NY was originally designed by Tiffany & Co. and struck on a medal
of honor presented in 1877 to John McDowell, a NYC police officer shot in the
line of duty. The primary logo, created in 1947 by sports artist Henry Alonzo
Keller, consists of "Yankees" against a baseball, written in red script with a
red bat forming the vertical line of the K, an Uncle Sam hat hanging from the
barrel. The logo was slightly changed over the years, with the current version
first appearing in the 1970s. The interlocking NY has varied greatly, and there
are currently three major versions in use. The first is the cap insignia, in
which the N and Y are of about the same size and unadorned. The second is the
logo on the breast of the home jersey. This logo first appeared there in 1912,
continued through the 1913 renaming to the New York Yankees, and after
disappearing in 1917, returned for good in 1936, although there have been many
small but apparent changes through the years. In the jersey logo, the Y is
larger, the letters more blocky, and the curves more exaggerated. The third is
the print logo which is used extensively in marketing, is painted behind home
plate at the Stadium, and appears on the team's batting helmets. The N is larger
and more curved, and the letters have large serifs at the end. In 1992, the
Yankees along with all MLB teams, had an MLB logo on the back of their caps for
the first time. The following year, the Yankees became one of the last teams to
wear a cap with a green underbrim. They did not switch to a gray underbrim until
1994, when most teams had been wearing a gray underbrim since the late 1980s. In
the 1996 World Series, the Yankees, along with the Atlanta Braves, became the
first teams to wear their caps with World Series patches sewn on the side. In
1998, the Yankees had the number #39 sewn on the back of their caps, next to the
MLB logo, for Darryl Strawberry, because he was suffering from colon cancer at
the time. When the MLB season opened in 2001, it was the 100th Anniversary of
the American League. The Yankees had an AL 100th Anniversary patch on the side
of their caps for the opening day series. When the Yankees celebrated their
100th Anniversary in 2003, they had a patch on the side of their caps,
commemorating it as well. The Yankees along with all MLB teams stopped wearing
wool caps, beginning in the year 2007. The new caps now have a black underbrim
to reduce glare, and a more 3D MLB logo on the back. In 2009, to celebrate the
inaugural season at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees had an inaugural season patch on
the back of their caps. It is the first time in MLB history that a patch was in
the back of a cap instead of just the MLB logo. However, the Yankees players
that played in the 2009 Major League Baseball All-Star Game, in St. Louis had
the regular MLB logo on the back of their caps. Starting in the 2010 MLB season,
the Yankees MLB logo on the back of the caps and the back collar of the jerseys
had gray behind the bat of the MLB logo instead of the usual red, which was
present on Yankee caps since 1992. The Yankees use a block letter "NEW YORK"
wordmark on the gray road uniform which has also become emblematic. There is
also a print version of the full name, which is of a more fanciful script than
the name appears in the team logo.
Yankees Cap Trivia: During a July 4,
2008 game against the Boston Red Sox, the Yankees wore a special
stars-and-stripes cap with an American flag pattern inside the interlocking N-Y.
It was "thought to be the first time in their history" that the Yankees had worn
a special edition cap. All other teams in Major League Baseball, including the
Red Sox, sported similar designs inside their cap logos.
As a Memorial Day promotion, the Yankees donned
red caps with stars-and-stripes logos for a May 25, 2009 game against
the Texas Rangers. The Yankees also wore these caps for a July 4, 2009
game against the Toronto Blue Jays and for a September 11, 2009 game against the
Baltimore Orioles. The latter game is particularly notable, as it was the game
in which Derek Jeter earned his 2,722nd base hit, breaking the franchise record
held by Lou Gehrig.
During the 2010 season, the Yankees wore special
off-white caps with a stars-and-stripes logo in games played on
Memorial Day, Independence Day weekend, and Patriot Day. Proceeds from sales of
these caps support Welcome Back Veterans, a non-profit organization "targeting
veterans' greatest needs, including mental health and job training/placement."
For Memorial Day, 2013 (May 27) all of major league
baseball wore caps and jerseys "featuring an authentic military digital
camouflage design licensed from the United States Marine Corps." The Yankees,
playing on the road at Citi Field, wore camouflage caps with a white
"NY", and jerseys with camouflage "New York" on the front and
camouflage numbers on the back.
About the Yankees: The New York Yankees are an American professional baseball
team based in the New York City borough of the Bronx. The Yankees compete in Major
League Baseball as a member club of the American League East division. They are
one of two major league clubs based in New York City, the other being the New York
Mets of the National League. In the 1901 season, the club began play in the AL as
the Baltimore Orioles. Frank Farrell and Bill Devery purchased the franchise and
moved it to New York City, renaming the club the New York Highlanders. The Highlanders
were officially renamed the Yankees in 1913.
The NY Yankees are one of the most recognized sports
teams internationally. Many different types of apparel are worn with the
teams logo and player names. Popular items include:
The back of the cap may be "fitted" to the wearer's
head size or it may have a plastic, Velcro, or elastic adjuster so that it can be
quickly adjusted to fit different wearers. The baseball cap is a part of the traditional
baseball uniform worn by players, with the brim pointing forward to shield the eyes
from the sun. Since the 1980s varieties of the cap have become a common fashion
accessory, particularly in the United States.
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.
Baseball hats are worn to help keep the sun out of the players
eyes. They are worn by New York Yankees fans to show team spirit.
Two primary hat styles: Fitted and Snapback.
Formerly, baseball caps only came in standard hat sizes.
Since 1980, 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.
Fitted baseball caps, those without an adjuster,
are normally sewn in six sections, and may be topped with a matching fabric-covered
button (also called a squatchee) on the crown. Metal grommets or fabric eyelets
are often sewn or attached near the top of each of the six sections of fabric to
provide ventilation. In some cases, the rear sections of the crown are made of net-like
mesh material for extra ventilation. The peak is typically stiffened by a sewn-in
piece of paperboard or stiff plastic.
Note: baseball caps are often worn backwards (on purpose).
Also, catchers of the baseball team wear them backwards to accommodate for the facemask.
Beginning with the 2014 season, MLB pitchers are permitted
to wear a special reinforced cap to protect their heads from line drives.

By the way, do you remember the song, "Yankee
Doodle went to town A-riding on a pony, Stuck a feather in his cap
And called it macaroni." Well, that has absolutely nothing to do with baseball.
"Yankee Doodle" is a well-known American song, the early versions of which date
back to the Seven Years' War and the American Revolution (1775–1783).
