Luke wears a baseball cap because of Scott Patterson’s baseball background.
Luke Danes seems like a baseball cap-wearing guy. The hat seems like it would have been a natural addition to his look, but there is actually more to the story of the headwear. Scott Patterson, who played Luke, actually had a career in baseball before he went into acting. He was a professional pitcher in minor league baseball from 1980 to 1986. He reached Triple-A status, which is the highest before major leagues, and played on four All-Star Teams.
