Fitted caps are one of the biggest and most controversial trends of this generation. Ranging from middle schoolers to high schoolers. It seems as if everyone is hopping on the trend. Specifically, baseball fitted caps are seen all across campus. They are used by several different groups, some good and some bad, as fitted caps are the most popular with delinquents. 

The rise of popularity with fitted caps came out of nowhere. No one expected baseball caps to become such a big trend among these students. These hats are seen all over campus. Everywhere you turn, you find students wearing them. 

Fitted caps tend to be looked down upon. They have a history of being worn by people getting into trouble. Just recently, Cam High allowed students to wear hats again. Before, they had restricted hats as a part of the school dress code. This was to prevent students from wearing hats that contained political messages, Gang affiliation, or inappropriate content. Students were pretty upset about the restriction on hats. Now, we can see a huge uprising in hats worn across campus. 

Baseball hats became popular in the 1980s, and have remained since. However, within the past couple of years we have seen a huge spike in the use of fitted caps. Over the course of these past few years, we have seen more and more students wearing fitted caps. The most common hats seen across school are popular sports teams. The teams seen represented the most include The New York Yankees. Black hats are the most predominant color hat in this growing trend.

The history of fitted caps dates back decades. states,The history of the ball cap can be traced right back to the mid-nineteenth century, a time when baseball was rapidly growing in popularity. In 1849, the New York Knickerbockers sported the first known baseball caps which were, in fact, made from straw.”
