SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — With more than 140 year’s worth of memorable games, unforgettable players and unreal happenings, Major League Baseball has a history that’s richer than just about any other sport. At the end of the day, though, being a baseball fan isn’t about wins and losses, pitchers and catchers, managers and umpires. Being a fan, really, is about representing your team and your city.
With that in mind, Stance is excited to announce its inaugural MLB Collection. The multi-faceted line, which came in to play on Opening Day, April 6, and continues with drops planted throughout the spring and summer, gets off the ground with two distinct styles – one featuring Club logos and another featuring legendary players.
The first MLB collection is a set of socks that showcases the logos of eight of the most storied teams and cities in baseball. Whether you are from Anaheim (Angels), Baltimore (Orioles), Boston (Red Sox), Cincinnati (Reds), Detroit (Tigers), Los Angeles (Dodgers), New York (Yankees) or St. Louis (Cardinals), this collection allows you to put on for your hometown no matter what base you’re at in life.
Likewise, the other noted collection, which features iconic imagery of Baseball Hall of Famers Cal Ripken, Jr., Johnny Bench, Lou Gehrig, Nolan Ryan, Ozzie Smith and Willie McCovey, gives true fans the chance to celebrate the greats who helped put their teams on the map.
This spring, with the help of Stance’s MLB line, it should be easy to remember that baseball–and life–isn’t about where you’re going as much as it’s about where you’re from.
Stance’s MLB collections are available now for $14 and $16 respectively, and will be sold at Stance.com, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Lids and many nationwide Stance retailers.
Embracing “The Uncommon Thread” as its mantra, Stance has turned one of the world’s most boring accessories into its most exciting in less than five years. Stance’s founders saw a category that had been ignored, taken for granted, looked over, dismissed. By breathing life into something that had been overlooked, Stance ignited a movement of art and self-expression that has drawn athletes, performers and iconic cultural influencers to the brand – a group they call the Punks & Poets. And by underpinning its creative roots with a relentless focus on technical innovation, Stance is now found in over 30 countries on the feet of those who dare to be different.
