The baseball cap is said to have originated as a long-brimmed hat with a round top and buttons, worn by the Brooklyn Excelsiors in the U.S. around 1860. In the 1940s, latex rubber was used as an inner reinforcement, which became the prototype for today’s baseball caps. The image below is a team photo of the Chicago White Sox taken in 1901.
