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
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.
