MILWAUKEE BREWERS (AA) 1944 T-SHIRTIf the graphic looks familiar, it should. It comes from the club's 1942 score card. An early incarnation of team mascot "Owgust" sprints towards home:
History: The American Association Brewers started play in 1903, with the colorfully-named Jiggs Donahue leading the league in hitting. The club maintained a rabid fan base for half a century, until they were supplanted by the Boston Braves, who became the first MLB franchise in modern history to relocate. The Brewers name was revived in 1970 when the bankrupt Seattle Pilots moved to the Cream City.

It's a gorgeous image, and I'm so glad that Ebbets Field Flannels is using this version of Owgust (maybe they're readers?).
I'm very pleased to see the amount of Brewer merchandise currently available at EFF. Speaks well to interest in the team's legacy. Help them continue to expand their offerings: buy one or twelve t-shirts today!
