Why is a hat trick called a hat trick?

The cricket term hat trick appeared first in British print in 1858. It refers to one player scoring three times in a row. In cricket jargon, one bowler takes three wickets with three balls in a row. That player was then permitted to pass around his hat and collect a few modest "rewards" such as pennies. So runs one story. Another says the cricket club bought the hat-tricking player a new hat. There are many versions of how the hat trick became connected to soccer, hockey, etc. most of which don't have supporting evidence.
