Baseball Cap

A baseball cap is perhaps the most popular type of hat in the United States. It is worn by men and women of all ages and is recognizable by its extended, firm and curved peak. The rest of the hat typically fits snugly against the head. The baseball cap was first used for the sport of baseball but is now worn by people all over the world as a casual hat.
