I always wear a baseball-style hat, in the fall/winter it's my Eagles hat, in the spring/summer, it's any number of random hats that I own.

Most of the time, I wear a classical "river boat gambler's" hat; black, broad rimmed or a floppy-brimmed 'straw' hat for the summer. I have a fedora, but don't wear it much.

I hate baseball caps but love REAL MEN'S hats, fedoras, bowler's etc...I really wish that that style would come back, I usually feel really foolish wearing one. But now that I'm involved in umping or score keeping vintage base ball games, I get to wear bowler's and stuff...

I'm looking at a top hat right now, a bowler and a straw boater right now..Haloween shops have them now, and I'm hoping to snag them on sale before the pack stuff away...

I don't have a picture handy, but I wear a hat in the winter to keep my head warm (short hair and not a full head of it!). It's a gray, wool "flat cap". I used to wear other hats that were brimmed when I lived in a more "urban" environment, but I would be considered a bit eccentric here if I wore them. I don't really like to wear "baseball caps" since I don't play baseball.

I think men's hats should come back into fashion. Wasn't it the norm 60+ years ago? Fashion in general has been getting progressively casual over the last 100 years or so. I guess when "casual" bottoms out to the point we're all walking around in our underwear, it will go the other way and we'll start to dress more formal again... hopefully including hats.

Jeesh, pretty strong there. I'll put any of my 123 baseball caps against anything else. I'd also wear a fedora, etc., if I had one and if my head weren't so darn small.

A baseball cap is certainly for REAL MEN in some instances. I must say I hate when people wear them backward or cockeyed. My dad always got pissed at me for doing that, saying it was disrespectful. I wholeheartedly agree.

Yeah, this is more where my vehemence against baseball caps stems from.

Of course to me real Base Ball Players don't wear gloves and dress like this..

This is our teams uniform. (This is the founder of the team and the mayor pro-tem)


This is Dave, our Other adjudicator/Talley keeper (we alternate, and there are no pics of me posted anywhere yet, except a fuzzy one in a newspaper.)



This is the Woodstock (ontario) Active's Uni



This is the Saginaw Old Goats




Note the long sleeves, and if a player rolls them up without asking permission of the women in the audience he is subjected to a fine of a days wages for ungentlemenly cnduct (25 cents.)

I've done the vintage baseball thing and love the hats. Could really do without the wool uniforms in the summer. Blech.

Can't do without my glove, though. Baseball, in its current form, paid most of my way through college. Makes me dedicated to what it is now.

Dave, the guy in the above picture, played last year....shattered 2 fingers catching a ball gloveless...had to have micro surgery. That's why I stick to scorekeeping and reffing....
