At any rate, I hope you enjoy the photos of the cap worn by the 2017 National Team of my perhaps-someday home country of Australia!

That date happens to be Australia Day so this week's Fresh Fitted Friday selection is a reproduction of the cap worn by the Australian national baseball team for an exhibition game against the US team  on December 1, 1956  as part of the 1956 Summer Olympics. Wait. December? Don't forget when it's winter here, it's summer over there, mates! Behold the Green and Gold! I like the gold felt "A" here against the dark green crown and bill but I really hope people don't mistake me for an Oakland Athletics fan. The great thing about Ebbets Field Flannels is their caps are always top-notch so there'
