I remember this team I played for as a kid. And I’m talking a legit kid. I was like 7 or 8 years old. Super young. I played for this youth team and we had a coach named Emilio John. The dude could ball. I looked up to this guy like he was on some sort of pedestal. He was a great coach to a group of rag tag kids. I owe a part of my love for the game to Emilio and I thank him for that.
My memories of this team and that time of my life are hazy. It was a while ago. But I do remember we had this ill yellow and navy 3/4 sleeve raglan as our jersey. It looked fresh. Only problem was it was basically 100% wool (at least it felt like it), it was terribly scratchy and it was so damn hot. That part I do remember. But I loved that jersey. I still think back on it with great fondness, even though it was quite possibly the most uncomfortable item I have ever worn.
Fast forward from being 7 years old to current times. And we find ourselves getting to reimagine that old jersey from my childhood. We kept the 3/4 sleeves and the raglan silhouette. But the feel, fabric and weight of this is are light years ahead of my old jersey. This BPFC Laurel Crest 3/4 sleeve raglan features in a crazy soft and super light cotton/poly blend.
We have been getting a ton of requests for new color ways in the BPFC Laurel Crest. And to get to re-imagine one of my childhood jerseys as a Bumpy Pitch item is pretty cool. Emilio John, if you are out there, or if anyone out there reading this knows EJ, have him get at me so I can send him one of these.
The 3/4 sleeve BPFC Laurel Crest is now available in the Bumpy Pitch online store.
