A historic moment in sports (and fashion) took place in 1901, arguably one of the most culturally significant events in the history of baseball... The Detroit Tigers placed its namesake logo on the caps of its players. They were the first baseball clubs to do so and thus setting the trend for potentially one of America's greatest fashion exports today.

This creative design challenge is a fun activity to explore the iconic baseball cap and how it became a ubiquitous fashion must have around the world.
