Yes - but you indicated there was no bill on a catcher's cap? We were talking about caps...not helmets. That's where I was confused I guess. I'd guess I should have been more general since yes, catchers wear helmets these days (and honestly, I just cannot remember if they wear a cap underneath the helmet or not) - one "purpose" of wearing a billed cap backward is that the bill can get in the way. Fashion-wise, it's just like anything else...there may not be a "purpose" - it's just a "thing". I have to laugh at some of these threads because inevitably, someone, who has disdain for a certain current fashion trend, shakes their head and asks "what's the purpose??" not really thinking that lots of stuff that is "fashionable" at different times in our lives or in different eras really has no "purpose" (hence my tie parallel). Most fashion trends have no real "purpose" - or else it would simply be functional rather than fashionable.

The ballcap backwards looks pretty silly to me. Specially the older a guy gets.... George Carlin has a rant about it.
