The Pride of Whitestone!

Mike Baxter grew up playing ball just miles from Citi Field. Every kid who plays sports dreams to play in their hometown and Baxter is living it. At the end of last season just before he was about to be called up to the bigs some of Mike's neighborhood friends hit me up about printing up some BAXTER tees. No disrespect to Mike but it was the end of the year and I wasn't sure that would be a smart move in case it was a one time thing. If things didn't work out, I'd be sitting on shirts I couldn't move. After going down to Spring Training and watching everyone try out for the outfield positions, I knew I saw something different in Mike. He has what it takes to play on the major league level day in and day out; has been sick off the bench as a pinch hitter and equally solid with the glove in the field (minus that one hiccup of course). I've been posting #ThePrideOfWhitestone on Twitter after Mike does anything big and other fans caught on. They agree this would make a great t-shirt for Baxter. His local friends and family have showed interest on our Facebook page and Mike himself said it was cool that we go ahead and print em up. As a Whitestone local and Archbishop Molloy HS alumni he has a huge cheering section in Queens. Get your shirt HERE. Thanks for the approval Mike!
