A baseball cap is a type of soft cap with a long, stiff brim that may either be curved or flat. The front of the cap typically contains designs or logos of sports teams (namely baseball teams). The back of the cap may be "fitted" to the wearer's head size or it may have a plastic, Velcro, or elastic adjuster so that it can be quickly adjusted to fit different wearers.

Baseball caps are made of many types of material and shaped in various styles for different purposes. Major and minor league baseball players wear classic-style caps made of wool (or, more recently, polyester) with their team's simple logo and colours; the logo is usually embroidered into the fabric

The baseball cap is a part of the traditional baseball uniform worn by players, with the brim pointing forward to shield the eyes from the sun. The cap is often seen in everyday casual wear.

Formerly, baseball caps came in standard hat sizes. Since 1980, they have commonly come in a one-size-fits-all form, with an adjustment strap in the back. This simplifies marketing, but it reduces sun protection for bald people.

More recently, advances in textiles have led to the "stretch-fit" hat, which uses Lycra or rubber to allow a hat to have a fitted style while still being "adjustable" within sizes.

Athletes in other sports wear caps with their teams logo and colours as "sideline" caps; both types are also sold as authentic team merchandise in retail stores and are quite popular.

Other caps may simply have a company's logo, such as Reebok, Nike or Carhartt these hats are often made of brushed cotton. Golfers tend to prefer the visor form of cap which does not cover the head but keeps the sun out of their eyes, women also traditionally have worn visors casually but a trend towards certain youth subcultures see an increase in visor popularity among both sexes.

Fitted baseball caps, those without an adjuster, are normally sewn in six sections, and may be topped with a matching fabric-covered button on the crown. Metal grommets or fabric eyelets are often sewn or attached near the top of each of the six sections of fabric to provide ventilation. In some cases, the rear sections of the crown are made of net-like mesh material for extra ventilation. The bill is typically stiffened by a sewn-in piece of paper board.
