They wear baseball caps.

Baseball became the American pastime way back in the early 1900s and still today it seems American travelers are insistent on being ready for a game at a moment’s notice.

The baseball cap—though not entirely baseball-centric anymore—is the American version of France’s beret, of Mexico’s sombrero, of Morocco’s fez. It’s the quintessential piece of American headwear.

Baseball caps in America have evolved way past baseball at this point. You can (and will) find just about anything on one whether it be teams from other sports, clothing brands, random illustrations, or words and phrases to make their own personal statements. Baseball caps these days are worn by men and women, athlete or not, adults and children, and sometimes even pets because America is an interesting place.
