Ebbets is proud and excited to bring you Roberto Clemente Signature Series Fitted Ballcaps. The contemporary high crown structured fitted cap features raised embroidery front logo with embroidered side patch and rear league logo.
This collection also includes an authentic reproduction of the original 1954 Montreal Royals ballcap, the only minor league cap Roberto Clemente ever wore. Hand-sewn from genuine wool baseball cloth, this cap is built to last a lifetime.
"The Great One" rose to stardom in right field for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but his baseball journey started in his home country of Puerto Rico. Clemente first entered the ranks of professional baseball as a teenage phenom with Puerto Rican giants Santurce Cangrejeros. His time with Santurce impressed the Brooklyn Dodgers who signed Clemente in February 1954 and sent him to play with their affiliate team the Montreal Royals until the Pirates claimed him as the first selection in the Rule 5 draft that November.
