Major League Baseball's New York Yankees feature Uncle Sam's hat in their team logo, where it sits atop a bat that forms the vertical line of the "K" in "Yankees."

Uncle Sam is a national personification of the United States, with the first usage of the term dating from the War of 1812 and the first illustration dating from 1852.
The first use of the term in literature is seen in an 1816 allegorical book, The Adventures of Uncle Sam in Search After His Lost Honor also in reference to the aforementioned Samuel Wilson.
The barrels, being government property, were branded "U.S."; the teamsters and soldiers joked that the barrels were the initials of Uncle Sam himself.
Wilson was born in historic Menotomy, now Arlington, Massachusetts, where the Uncle Sam Memorial Statue marks his birthplace.
Another sign marks "The boyhood home of Uncle Sam" outside his second home in Mason, NH.
The hat is frequently used in imagery pertaining to the team, and fans often wear Uncle Sam hats to games or other functions.
Uncle Sam, referred to in their song U.S. Blues, is one of the many elements that compose the band's "American mythology."
