When you look at the sports that Americans love the most you would probably nominates 3 or 4 sports. Sports in America has always been different to the sports the rest of the world love to watch. In Europe, Asia, South America and Africa soccer or football reign supreme. Not in America. In the countries of the British commonwealth you also have cricket. Granted that tennis is as popular in America as the rest of the world but it is not the most popular sport anywhere. In America they have their own mix of sports which consist of;
- American Football (NFL)
- Baseball (MLB)
- Basketball (NBA)
- Ice Hockey (NHL)
Whilst basketball is also popular in Europe the quality of play is nowhere near the USA. With Hockey the only place it is more popular is in Canada.
Just as popular as all these sports is the humble baseball cap. Baseball caps are a clothing item which transcend all sports. You don’t see fans of all sports walking around wearing a football helmet. You don’t even see them walking around wearing a hockey mask, unless you are Michael Myers. What you do see is fans of all sorts of sports walking around wearing baseball caps. Baseball caps have become the headwear of choice for sports all around the world from soccer to tennis, and rugby to whatever you can think of. It is strange but the humble baseball came reigns supreme when it comes to sports attire. Visit a team store anywhere in the world and no matter what the sport is you will find baseball caps as part of the merchandising line up.
This is probably why the baseball caps is the most popular custom cap as well. When companies look at integrating custom caps into their promotional products list or as part of their corporate uniform they inevitable look at the baseball cap. That is because the baseball caps is the perfect headwear item. The popularity of the baseball caps isn’t just because its association with baseball itself, although I am sure it plays some part. Its popularity stems from the fact that it is the perfect kind of cap. It is not too big. It fits snuggly around the head. Due to its design it doesn’t get blown off the head easily during a windy day the way that a bucket hat or straw hat would. They are adjustable which means it is easy to have it as a one size fits all option. All these factors and more also explain why it is so popular as a custom cap. Indeed this is precisely why it could be call the best promotional caps and the best promotional products around. I challenge anyone to nominate a better item.
