History: The ASL traditionally was an Eastern league that consisted primarily of ethnic clubs. Bob Cousy of basketball fame was hired as commissioner and announced that Chicago would join the league for the 1975 season. In 1976 the Cats and Cleveland Cobras tied for the league’s last playoff spot. When the Cats failed to respond in time to Cousy’s demand that the two teams schedule an extra game to decide who would go to the playoffs, Cousy gave the slot to Cleveland by forfeit. Enraged Chicago owner filed a $1 million lawsuit against Cousy and the league.

Chicago Cats soccer cap KICKS the competition

HOLY VIBRANT POWDER BLUE BATMAN! After collecting all Ebbets (cat's caps) KC Katz, FT. Worth Cats, I had to have this one. The real difference for me is that I went with an adjustable vs the fitteds I previously purchased. I will admit that I kinda of have a big head (7 1/2) and was worried if the adjustable would look strange or not fit properly. After just receiving the cap, I give it a 10 out of 5 stars for the fit, the craftsmanship and comfort of this truly unique cap. As with all Ebbets caps, the construction and materials are second to none! What I realized moving forward, I might just be purchasing Ebbets adjustable caps for now on. It truly fits that good. The powder blue wool on this seriously POPS. Much better in person than on the screen. Cheers and well done Ebbets!

This hat is awesome

Honestly, the only downside to this hat is that it's blue and not red. Red is a far superior colour to blue. Besides that, the quality of the hat is outstanding, the logo is perfect. Well worth the 40% mark up I paid because of the exchange rate!
