Baseball Season Got Us Like...

Baseball Season Got Us Like...

Remember when we were Cubs fans?

Well, let me be more clear - we were (are) Steve Cishek fans. Our Sky team consists of two Indiana natives who never got too into baseball, and I'm a New Englander who is passionate about all New England sports - so I have to be careful throwing around the "fan" word. 😉

In all seriousness, it feels like a breath of fresh air that sports are back. People used to think that the lag of time between sports seasons was the longest time of the year because you had a month without sports. Ha! If only. I'm sure a lot of people are happy for a lot of reasons that sports are back, but now that baseball is back, we've been doing some reminiscing on last season. Because last season was very special to us for so many reasons. If you know what we're talking about, or even if you don't, come down memory lane with us for a minute.


The fact that we were able to get connected with Steve Cishek in the first place is a really cool story. Steve previously played for the Miami Marlins, and we just so happen to know the son of the Miami Marlins Chaplin. He told Steve about our company, and Steve took it upon himself to order from us simply because he liked our mission. He ended up loving our socks too, and our 'Merica socks even became apart of his pre-game ritual, as he'd wear them every game day during warm ups. As they say, the rest is history.

Being able to see the story come full circle when we partnered with Pacific Garden Mission in Chicago last May and having Steve and his wife join us on our hand out day was just so cool. At the time, he was a pitcher for the Chicago Cubs and he literally had a game that night! Betcha wouldn't have thought that just a few hours earlier he was hanging out with us at a homeless shelter. It's one of our favorite handouts to date - and no, not JUST because we had an MLB pitcher with us. Mostly because we got to see our mission come to life. One of our customers (Steve) got to see first hand where his purchase goes to. He got to look into the eyes of all of the people at PGM that day and personally hand them a pair of socks. He got to hear the thankfulness in their voices. He got to see that, to them, it's more than a pair of socks.

Needless to say, I'm sure that the people who are at PGM are thankful that Steve's made his home in the south side now that he switched from the Cubs to the White Sox. Looks like we'll be supporting the White Sox this season now, too!
