A recent article by Maury Brown on Forbes reported that Baseballism, one of baseball’s best off-field retailers, is “(Teetering) on The Edge” after the cancellation of Spring Training and indefinite postponement of the regular season. The economy just hit its biggest speed bump in a century and Baseballism, like many businesses, is along for the ride.
As an avenue for baseball fans to find products they might like, I personally contacted Baseballism to see what WPW could do to help them out—publicity, promotion, buy a few tees, whatever we could do to support them. After all, there are very few companies so dedicated to our sport, and companies like Baseballism enrich the game. I fully expected them to hit me back with some profit-first promotions, since, like all other businesses right now, they’re a little cash-strapped.
Baseballism’s reply inspired me to tell you guys about it. It gave me a jolt of good humanity that I need right now! Here’s the email reply:
“Hey Mike. Thanks for reaching out. It’s been a CRAZY couple weeks. We’re doing a Stay Home logo tee in which proceeds are going to manufacturing N95 medical masks which will be donated to local hospitals.”
As industrialists beg for bailouts in an economic storm from hell, Baseballism, a company that started as a baseball camp, has decided to HELP OUR FRONT LINES before themselves.
STAY HOME TEE to Support N95 Mask Production for American Heroes on the Front Lines
Win a Stay Home tee from WPW
I picked one up for myself and I’ll send another one to a lucky commenter on this post. Just leave a valid email with your size and I’ll email the winner for a shipping address.
All proceeds from the Stay Home collection will go to the manufacturing/purchasing of N95 medical masks. All masks will be donated to #GetUsPPE. (getusppe.org) They’re an organization distributing personal protection equipment to healthcare centers in need. Shop the Stay Home tee here. At this time, Baseballism is unable to accept cash donations, though getusppe.org has a donation page.
Doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals at hospitals near you are putting their lives on the line every day to save their community right now. Today. Make baseball a force for good, and buy a tee if you can afford it.
