One of the great things about parenting is getting to coach your kids’ baseball teams. As a result, I picked up an assortment of big-league replica caps over the years.
I got this Phillies cap when coaching my youngest’s team in Alameda, Calif., in the mid-1990s. Despite the occasional crushing in the closet, this cap has retained its shape very well
From this photo you can’t tell the best bit of detail on the cap: the blue button atop the crown. The Phillies have stuck with this script “P” for several decades, although they wavered a bit with a funky 70’s-style “P” for a while.
