Shibe Grand Opening Weekend June 20th-22nd!

June 13, 2014 5 Comments

For the past several months, we have been rehabbing, rebranding, repainting, and reorganizing our little neighborhood sports shop on 13th and Walnut, and now we're ready to celebrate. We hope you'll join us.

We are extremely excited about the Shibe Grand Opening Weekend, June 20th-22nd. The fun will begin on Friday at 6 p.m., as Shawn Murray (left) will be talking about some of his grandfather's amazing photos of the 1920s A's and Yankees. Bruce Murray was a sports photographer for the Philadelphia Bulletin in the 1920s and there is no other way to say it: his photographs are spectacular. His best known one is of Babe Ruth at his last game (which took place at Shibe Park), and Shawn will be showing not only that one but several more of his grandfather's remarkable photos, which we will have for sale at the store for the next few months. We're really excited to have these incredible works of art in the store.

After Shawn, we'll learn about the history of Phillies jerseys from Peter Capolino. Peter was the former owner of Mitchell and Ness, with a passion for sports history and jersey history. He's going to talk about the different jerseys and patches the Phils have worn through the years, why they suffered in wool unis during the summers, and why they changed their colors to blue and yellow in 1938. This is an incredible presentation that Phillies fans are going to love.

On Saturday, we've got some more action for Philly sports history buffs. At 6 p.m., Penn history professor Bruce Kuklick is going to talk about his award-winning book, To Every Thing a Season, which tells the history of Shibe Park and the evolution of its surrounding neighborhood through the years of its existence, from 1909-1976. At 6:30, Drexel prof Dick Rosen, co-author of The Philadelphia Phillies, will be doing a Powerpoint presentation on the early history of the Phillies and the A's.

At both events, we will have liquid refreshment provided by our friends at Ommegang, who just recently released Cooperstown Ale, a beer inspired by the Baseball Hall of Fame! They are honestly one of my favorite breweries, and when I saw they had an ale honoring the sport of baseball, I knew we had to have it for the event. Drinks and snacks will be provided complimentary to all who attend Friday and Saturday's events.

On Sunday, we'll wrap it up with a USA-Portugal viewing party on the 10' big screen TV at Milkboy, the terrific bar just a couple of blocks away from us. We'll have a Chinese auction during the game as well, with numerous prizes from our store to give away, including t-shirts, hats, and even a Chase Utley jersey. We're also gonna get some unique vintage USA soccer shirts made for the event.

In addition to all of these great events, we'll be running sales all weekend, having customers shoot hoops for savings, and playing games and doing giveaways all weekend long. So we hope you'll swing by and check us out. The fun starts at 5 p.m. on Friday. Hope to see you there!

Chill out Bobby Warrington. People make mistakes all the time, no need to be a keyboard warrior and sound like a know it all.

Babe Ruth’s last game as a player did NOT take place at Shibe Park. It occurred at the Phillies’ home ballpark, Baker Bowl, on May 25, 1935. Ruth, a member of the Boston Braves, grounded out to first base in the top of the first inning. He took himself out of the game once the bottom of the first inning was over after misplaying a ball in the outfield that allowed the Phillies to score a run. (One of three runs the Phillies would score in the first inning.) Ruth decided his misplay was enough to prove to him that his playing days were over. The fact that Ruth played his last game at Baker Bowl is noted on the state historical marker located on Broad Street at the site of that old ballpark.

American Needle Fitted Hats

If you do not know your size, first determine where on your head you want to wear your hat. Usually it is worn about a half-inch to an inch above the eyebrows and/or just above the ears. Have a friend hold the tape measure (cloth, plastic, or download a printable version here) at the point where you want the hat to rest on your head.  Insert the tip of your little finger between the tape and your head.  Record the measurement and find your Fitted Hat size using the chart below.  This should provide you with a comfortable fit.

Apparel Sizing Tips:

Use these tips as a general guide when finding your measurements:

Chest/Bust: With your arms at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest, across shoulder blades and under arms.

Waist: To measure your natural waistline, wrap the tape so it intersects your navel. Keep tape flat, but comfortably loose.

Hips: Stand with your heels together and measure the fullest part of your hips. Make sure the measuring tape is level all the way around your body.

Inseam: Stand up straight, and start the tape measure high in your crotch. Straighten the tape down the inside of your leg to the bottom of your ankle.
