In the early 1980s baseball hats and other sports hats modeled after this design started to be manufactured in once size fits all formats. This change to the production allowed for adjustable hats, which have become known as Snapbacks hats, be created which allowed a person to adjust the size of the hat using snaps and selecting the size which best fit their head. Snapbacks hats allowed manufacturers to reduce costs and product more hats than in the past because they no longer had to make different sizes and balance demand for these sizes against production schedules. Now manufacturers could make as many baseball hats as were demanded and only had to make modifications to make smaller versions for children. The mass production of Snapbacks hats allows sports teams to expand offerings for the fans and create different hats in the team's colors with some styles featuring the team mascot or logo, while others had the team's name instead. Baseball hats are available for many different sports fans including baseball, basketball, hockey, soccer, football and basketball.

Colleges, high schools and local sporting teams also make use of Snapbacks hats for the players as well as selling them to local fans. The proceeds from the sales of these hats often go to help support the sporting programs at schools by paying for uniforms, travel to away games and salaries for the coaches. People can show their support for local sports programs by purchasing and wearing these hats. Snapbacks hats can also be used for fundraising purposes by schools, charities, and other non-profit organizations. These adjustable hats can feature popular sports teams from various sports or even the organizations own logo and design. Some manufacturers of adjustable hats will assist with fundraising programs by providing order sheets, catalogs and product samples.
