The Frank Higgs Day celebrates the start of the Hampshire Hogs cricket season.
Frank Higgs was the principal umpire for the Hogs between 1971 and 1982, and is well remembered for his cry “Gentlemen, cricket!” with which he opened each session of play. After his passing a fund in memorial for his passion for cricket was donated to support and promote junior cricket of the Hampshire Hogs.
