Baseball caps are either earned, demanding or aspirational.

Sometimes they look forward in anticipation, as in wearing a team’s hat to a football game, or one given as a gift at the beginning of a project or career. Sometimes they look back. They may be well-worn and covered with the grime of work and play, but they are reminders of places we have been. And nearly everyone has that one hat — the preferred one, the lucky one, the one that is loved to the embarrassment of those who are seen with the wearer.
