Provided the cap is black, white, beige or one of the school's recognized colors, of course.

You have the makings of a rules interpreter.

That said, with regard to eye makeup, I am not going down that road, especially in a boys' game, .

Regarding face paint, if I was the HC of a girls' team and my players were intimidated by opponents who has its school's school mascot painted on their cheeks, then I need to players.

Regarding eye black, I could never understand how eye black helped reduce glare for baseball, softball, and football players, that said, I would not doubt that there are players who may have problems with the glare from bright lights and if it helps players in outdoor sports then it could possibly help basketball players. Of course I can see prohibiting players who paint their players like KISS or the Insane Clown Posse, .

I can NOT believe that not one 'yunguns' on this forum did not pick up on my "bald old geezer" reference to the Insane Clown Posse?
