We worked closely with World Series champion, Cy Young Award winner and one of the famed ‘Black Aces’, CC Sabathia to bring you this powerful collaboration. CC coordinated the program and acted as Creative Director. We partnered with the Major League Baseball Players Association, the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and our partners at Jackie Robinson's family to make this collection come to life.
Proceeds from all sales will benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum’s efforts to preserve and celebrate the rich history of African American baseball and its significance in the social advancement of America at large. Furthermore, when legendary former players are featured in the collection, proceeds will also go directly to them or their estates.
“I would not be here if it were not for Jackie Robinson and if it were not for Don Newcombe.” – Ex-President, Barack Obama
Standing tall at 6-foot-4, when he took the mound he cast a long shadow. “Big Newk” had a nuclear fastball that could singe the hair on a batter’s arms as it popped into the catcher’s mitt. Don Newcombe was one of the most iconic pitchers of the mid-20th century. He lit up the Negro Leagues in his early career and tore up the Majors when, along with his Brooklyn Dodgers’ teammate Jackie Robinson, he helped bring the racial barrier crashing down.
Our tribute to the great Don Newcombe continues with this tee!
