Learn how to draw a great looking Baseball Cap with easy, step-by-step drawing instructions, and video tutorial.
By following the simple steps, you too can easily draw a perfect Baseball Cap.
The baseball cap arose with the purpose of shielding baseball players' eyes from the sun. A team known as the Brooklyn Excelsiors were the first to wear this style of hat in 1860, and it became a popular part of the baseball uniform by 1900.
Another use of the hat was in identifying the players of each team. Hats usually displayed the team's colors, and well as a mascot logo or the team's initial.

Did you know? Baseball caps have a wide range of associated lingo. The button on the top of the hat is called a "squatchee," and hats with an adjustable fit are called "snapbacks."
Since the 1980s, baseball caps have been popular fashion statements - even if they have nothing to do with baseball. Movies, television shows, businesses, clothing companies, different sports leagues, and other industries use themed baseball caps to advertise their brands.
Baseball caps are also part of the uniform of certain non-sports groups. For example, baseball caps are worn by officers of the U.S. Navy and Coast Guard, as well as parachute riggers and instructors in the U.S. Army.
Would you like to draw a baseball cap? All you will need is a pencil, pen, or marker and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to color your drawing to match your favorite team.

4. Use a curved line to enclose a teardrop shape beneath the bill. This forms the curved side of the bill, giving the cap a three-dimensional appearance. Detail the bill further by drawing a curved line parallel to the bottom of the teardrop shape. This indicates the front edge of the bill. Finally, connect the back of the cap's crown to the bill using a short, curved line.
