The Baggy cricket cap holds a special place in the heritage and traditions of cricket
From crickets earliest days, customised baggy caps have provided cricket teams with a distinct appearance and identity which continues to this day, this is no different with the City Cricket Club which was established in 1946.
The ritual of receiving a baggy cap is something players continue to hold with great significance.
The mandate for a City Cricket Club player to receive the traditional royal blue Kookaburra baggy cap is:
- 10 years’ service/playing years for the City Cricket Club
- 10 Two-Day Premier Grade matches for the City Cricket Club
- Century scored or 6 wicket bag taken on the clubs home ground – Cobham Oval
These caps will also have the players initials embroidered on the side along with the year they debut for the club on the back of the baggy cap.
- A baggy cap can be also received by a member/supporter of the club who continues to go over and beyond the call of duty for the club over a period of time.
- A past player from the club who fits the above mandate, can also request their cap – this is will come under the term ‘giving back to the baggy cap’. This will be presented to the player at the clubs end of season awards evening.
