I was approached by the A's via Twitter, due to my use of different social media outlets to promote the A's, to throw out the first pitch at the game on Tues. April 16, 2013. It was nerve-wracking but definitely an honor.
During the off-season I started a small little hobby that turned into a full blown addiction. I always got tired of purchasing the standard and very expense MLB gear in the shops and always wondered why they couldn't do more unique things. How "Shirseys" for every MLB player are not available all year long is the biggest crock I have ever heard. So basically from something that started with "hey I would like that on a shirt" turned into 30+ original designs that I have been sharing with people on twitter and facebook. Now since MLB has strict copyright laws I am unable to use the classic Athletic A and other smaller things like jersey text and full on name recognition so I put my own little spin on them. Take a look, follow me on Twitter (@itsOpeningDay) Facebook (Opening Day Designs) and if you want to get a shirt visit the SHOP. Just want everyone looking good for FanFest/Spring Training & Opening Day! If you have any questions please feel free!
