Los Barboudos, or the ‘Bearded Ones’ was the nickname given to the rebel forces of the Cuban revolution, they did not drink, nor loot, as previous armies did, but they did play Baseball. Fidel Castro was a devoted baseball fan, and also knew its cultural importance in Cuba, and as President announced he would underwrite the national Cuban teams, (the Sugar Kings) debts, to help this cause he staged and exhibition game to raise funds between the Cuban National Police, and his own team made up of members of the 26th of July revolutionary moment, aptly named, Los Barboudos.
This cap is a lightweight cotton adaptation of the wool flannel original, better for those hot Cuban nights; it features the felt team logo, satin under brim and cotton sweatband, with leather strap & cinch size adjuster.
