During the Anti-Japanese War, the Eighth Route Army carried out baseball sports in the anti-Japanese base areas such as northern Shaanxi and Jinchaji. But at that time, baseball was just a rare sport, and athletes didn’t all have baseball caps. Because of the limited conditions, it is even more impossible to popularize the masses. In 1952, there was a baseball game in the first All-Army Games of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army. In 1959, at the first National Games, baseball was listed as an official competition. There were 23 provinces and city teams participating, and the Beijing team won the championship.

Everyone has the right to bring a baseball cap. The ordinary people also bring baseball. Cap, baseball cap is also made different.
