I always thought this too, but mostly when I was younger. I haven't thought about this in years though, nor have I seen anyone wear it like this in years.

As a weldor for 40 years, I got in the habit of wearing a cap backwards back in the 1960's to be able to put on my welding hood.

Yep! I don't wear a hat to be stylish. Its a cover. Sun, rain etc. If I wear a ball cap, and turn it backward, its because I'm wearing a welding hood or crawling under something. Anytime the bill hampers operations. The style factor that many young people have in how caps are worn elludes me. Wbatever turns their crank I guess.

Some of the positions I have seen caps twisted into are....interesting. I consider it " gangsta" style.

Default Tan Lines

This is what happens when you wear a hat backwards too often.

Yes but in the front it keeps the sun out of your eyes while walking or driving.

LOL in this century catchers wear specially designed helmets and there is no bill!

Nobody wears backwards baseball caps now, anyway. The boyz in da hood wear flat-brimmed ball caps turned slightly to one side, yo.

If you're wearing something that the bill would interfere with, wear it backwards, if not , wear it the right way. These are the same guys that wear their hat in a restaurant, really cool !

Not in youth sports..at least that I've seen. (Says the mother of a son who played catch for years "in this century")

I'm surprised. Neither of my boys is a catcher, but I don't recall ever seeing a catcher without a helmet.

In fact, I'm REALLY surprised in this age of concussion awareness that a child in any league would be allowed to get that close to a swinging aluminum bat, not to mention blocking the plate from careening runners, without a helmet.
