Today is a special day on the baseball calendar.
On April 15th, 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball and stepped onto a Major League ball field for the first time.
To honor his legacy, 30% of all sales between today and Sunday will go toward a series of Summer Camps run by the Anderson Monarchs in North Philly, South Philly, and Kensington, as they reach out to communities that may not otherwise have access to America's Pastime.
Camps will be led by local coaches and players, and by buying a Shibe product, you will help send a child for free.
We'll also spend the next few days honoring an important part of Philadelphia Sports history, the Negro League era, through an interview with a Negro League historian, a spoken word piece from our brand ambassador Reef the Lost Cauze, and by bringing back a popular Philadelphia Stars tee.
We hope you join us in supporting this mission we firmly believe in and are proud to support.
