These are all the official hats of the 20 national teams at the 2023 World Baseball Classic
With the 2023 World Baseball Classic upon us, it’s time to take a look at not just the 20 teams playing, but the hats they’ll all be wearing while doing so.
The hat that players have atop their heads in a baseball game, is as much a part of their uniform as the shirt and pants they wear. Indeed, some might argue it is the uniform, with the team’s logo and colors emblazoned for all to see. With that in mind, it’s always interesting to see how teams choose to represent themselves. Even more so in an international tournament.
