Baysox uniform observation

Recommended Posts

Bowie recently had an auction for game worn uniforms. As no one had bid on it, I placed a minimum bid on Hunter Harvey's game-worn road gray uniform jersey and won.

It arrived at my house, and I noticed that the lettering and symbols on it were not sewn-on patches as with the major league uniforms. The letter which came with the uniform from Phil Wry, Assistant General Manager of the Baysox, describes the jersey as "the size 48 jersey is an official Rawlings manufactured jersey. All the lettering, numbering, club marks and patches are fully sublimated into the fabric of the jersey. There is no player name on this jersey."

I'm going to assume that everything is printed on the jersey, because it all doesn't even feel like the pictures you get pressed onto tee shirts down at ocean city. I've never seen a jersey like it before.

Also, it smells vaguely like men's cologne, so I'm not sure the jersey was laundered after it was game-worn and before it was shipped to me.

Now, if only the O's actually do something in place of Fan Fest, I can get Hunter Harvey to autograph it. I think it would be cool have a game-worn jersey autographed by the player who wore it.

I can't speak directly to Bowie's road jersey as I cannot recall having seen Bowie on the road in a long time.  However, most of the visiting teams through Bowie and other minor leagues, Aberdeen and Frederick, seem to have the same type of jersey you describe.  I think mostly it is a cost issue, in that these are cheaper as what I've seen doesn't look well made.  My assumption is the jersey was laundered.  The last game he played in Bowie may not have been known to be his last game there at the time and they washed it to prepare for next road game or series.

    • My father once played slow pitch softball in a Men's over 60 League.   Most of the guys can still hit and throw, but as we get old, we lose our ability to run.   Once my father drilled a line drive to right center that looked like a good, clean, hit... until the Right Fielder threw him out at first base.    I yelled, "Dad, that's embarrassing... getting thrown out at first on a hit to Right Center like that!"   He said, "You missed last week... they threw me out on a hit to Left Center...."....
    • Maybe you could work up their tolerance for boredom.  Maybe have them watch paint dry for a couple of hours then move on to baseball and soccer.
    • Fortunately, the Expos apparently still thought highly enough of him and Dave McNally to trade us Ken Singleton and Mike Torrez for them on my birthday! After Don Buford spoiled us during the three consecutive World Series seasons,  Bumbry (26 years old then) and Coggins (22) providing tremendous excitement at the top of the lineup in our division-winning '73 season. Not only were they constantly on base, they banged out plenty of extra-base hits, and were threats to steal. I remember the triples (20 in only 745 combined ABs) being especially fun. Bumbry: 356 ABs, 73 runs, 15 doubles, 11 triples, 7 HRs, 23 SBs, 34 BBs--.337/.398/.500/.898, 154 OPS+. Coggins: 389 ABs, 54 runs, 19 doubles, 9 triples. 7 HRs, 17 SBs, 28 BBs--.319/.363/.468/.831, 134 OPS+.
    • He’s been working auto with his nephew and Lamar Jackson. I read that he’s lobbied Lamar and is looking for a chance to play with Hollywood.   Would the Ravens do it?   Could his nephew keep him in check?   Would he agree to a contract with little or no guaranteed money?   Would the NFL allow him back after a short suspension?
    • It's a problem.  You can't flip a switch and suddenly be cool.  The closest I can get my kids to watch a baseball game is Youtube highlights.  Or physically take them to OPACY.  But they won't watch a whole game of anything, even a two-hour soccer match, and they're good soccer players who love to wear their favorite team's gear.
    • Jim Traber had a .949 OPS in his first five weeks in the majors in '86.  Outside of that his MLB OPS was about .550. He hit about .150 in Earl's last forgettable month as a major league manager.
