About this project

Get Everyone on the Same Team - The goal of Baseballism is to unite the Baseball community and spread its culture through premium, timeless, casual apparel and merchandise. With the support of Kickstarters, we're hoping to launch our brand, launch our first-run of merchandise and apparel, and create our online retail store. 

We're here to make America's pastime look good.

The Story
 - Baseballism started in 2006 as a baseball camp and private lessons company in Eugene, OR, and although the camp was highly successful, the camp shirts turned out to be even more popular.  After each camp, participants and parents demanded more camp shirts to wear around casually. We realized that people wanted to share the love of Baseball, that it was bigger than just their individual teams.

We wanted to create something fresh for the Baseball community that differs from mainstream athletic brands, representing the unique culture, and paying tribute to the sport's illustrious history.

Baseballism is a brand for the Baseball community, created by members of the Baseball community.

Your Support  - There are two major ways you can support Baseballism:
1. Tell your friends, your team, your family, people you know, people you don't know, tell someone about Baseballism and our Kickstarter project.  One of the best ways to start is to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.

2. Become a Backer - With the support of backers we will be able to produce merchandise that can be sold in stores and online. Here's a breakdown of how the Kickstarter funds raised will be used:

  • 75% of funds raised » will go towards production to create and distribute initial run of Baseballism merchandise and apparel
  • 25% of funds raised » will be used to create the new Baseballism online retail store/website

Since Baseball is America's pastime, all of our apparel and merchandise will be designed and manufactured in America.
