Over the weekend the US Military All-Stars played the Red Sox down at Ft. Myers.  This morning there was some good footage on the local sports cable network, NESN.  I found a few snippets of footage on NESN’s website.  Here is a link to Dan Duquette, former Red Sox General Manager, talking about the US Military All-Stars on NESN.  Note: give the site a few seconds to load the video… it will appear in the top right corner of the screen.  Also, the sound starts off as “mute” so click the mute button to turn on the sound:

And it looks like former New England Patriot’s QB Doug Flutie is making a cameo appearance on the US Military All-Stars at Second Base:

I like Dan Duquette’s point that the US Military brought baseball to many countries such as Germany, Italy, Korea, and Japan.  Seems fitting while the World Baseball Classic is in full gear.

Here are a few baseball cards featuring US Military All-Stars past and present:

Along with the camo catcher’s gear, we proudly supply the team with the camouflage  batter’s helmets.

Just like last year, Jason Varitek has asked us to make some custom gear for various holidays.  On Tuesday he was sporting some fancy Kelley green and white duds in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.  The gear was a nice compliment to the white and green uniforms and green ball caps worn by all the Sox players.

Just like last year, each set of gear is being auctioned off to benefit a different charity.  The proceeds from the St. Patrick’s Day gear will be supporting Children’s Hospital in Boston.

To place your bid, visit the official Red Sox auction site.

Here is a close up shot I took of the embroidery on the throat guard before shipping the gear to Tek last week.

Oh yeah, and Tek cranked a homer (and that’s not just the luck of the Irish).

Jose Morales and Mike Redmond of the Twins were both looking sharp in their All-Star gear, albeit not quite as festive as Tek’s.
