2015 Home Run Heroes

We proudly honor our 2015 OVLL Home Run Heroes... secretly known as the...

"OVLL Bomber Squadron"

Crush Cap

 The Legend of the “Crush Cap”

OVLL Home Run Heroes proudly wear their team hats. In World War II, bomber pilots also proudly wore their hats known as aviator “crush caps.” Aviators were officers who were required to wear their hats during their missions. But because the hats had a wire rim to maintain their round shape, the rim interfered with the pilot’s radio headphones that they had to wear. So pilots simply removed the wire rim inside of their hats to allow the top of the hat to collapse or “crush” so that the earphones could be worn comfortably… and so the crush cap was born! Good luck pilots on your missions dropping your "home run bombs" this season!
