He was the first Native American to play in the National League, making his professional debut in 1897. You may or may not have heard his name, but his impact on the sport certainly remains.
We partnered with our friends at Big Fly Gear to tell the story of Louis Sockalexis, hoping to capture the essence of an extremely talented and complicated man who broke barriers for the sport.
To honor his legacy, we created this special edition set signed by owner Ian Kinsler to raise funds for Native American youth in sports. Profits from this collection will work to make quality equipment, facilities, instruction and education in stic sports more accessible to Native American youth by easing the financial burden associated with specialized select sports today.
