2017 World Baseball Classic: Australia National Team - Fresh Fitted Friday

It's been just about a year since my last birthday post which means…it's time for another one! So, just like last year I'm shining the spotlight on Australia as we both bask in the glory that is January 26 however this time the cap worn by the Australian National Team is from the 2017 World Baseball Classic.

Something I don't discuss much (but you probably already know all about) is the "Labels" section in the sidebar of the site pages is super helpful, especially if you'd like to peruse caps that share metadata with the current cap you're viewing. For example if you clicked on the "World Baseball Classic" label, you'll see the 2017 US National Team cap!

I know I made it easy for you by linking to the page just then but it's almost my birthday so I'm feeling super generous and helpful! 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!

I hope that this doesn't come across as biased toward the Land Down Under, but Australia and Netherlands had two of the coolest caps in the 2017 World Baseball Classic

If very familiar with the Australian Flag, you might've have been worried that the logo in the first image only featured the stars of the Southern Cross, in which case you would be relieved that the Commonwealth Star is thriving here on the side patch.

I'm not typically a fan of the New Era flag embroidered on the wearer's left but since the patch is on the right side, at least there's symmetry.

The WBC tag is a welcome addition to the otherwise standard tags

I love the primary colors of the WBC logo embroidery here

Just like last year's Australia cap, this one isn't going on on the Trading Block however please don't hesitate to reach out if you want any other cap from that list and you are willing to part with any of the hats on my Wish List.
