Words by Jerry Cohen, founder of EBBETS FIELD FLANNELS

Started Ebbets Field Flannels in the late '80s dedicated to replicating the classic baseball Funiforms, made with the classic materials, using the original manufacturing processes. He was the evangelist for the timeless baseball uniform style, why it was better and what was beautiful about it. The Sox home uiform is a perfect example.

For the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Red Sox "Impossible Dream Team", the Sox asked him to make the uniforms for all surviving veterans. Also for the 50th anniversary in 2017.
