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.
Playing on the National Negro League field was different. There was a freedom to play your own way. To express yourself free from the oppression of existing baseball structures. Players felt at ease to let their culture flow through their style of play, and this showed on the field. The swagger oozing from this style was elevated by their quality of play. This was no secondary league. In their eyes, this was the league and they were the show - "I use my single windup, my double windup, my triple windup, my hesitation windup, my no windup. I also use my step-n-pitch-it, my submariner, my sidearmer, and my bat dodger. Man's got to do what he's got to do." - Satchel Paige.
