WCL Announces New Merchandise Partnership with Teambrown Apparel
July 14, 2020
Today the West Coast League, one of North America’s premier summer collegiate baseball leagues, announced a new partnership with Teambrown Apparel to produce WCL-branded merchandise for the league’s fans around the Pacific Northwest and the rest of the baseball world, with items available immediately.
“We initially became aware of the WCL because of their unique role in baseball,” said Teambrown co-owner Rob Brown, “as the West’s top summer proving ground for college ballplayers. But we soon fell in love with the league’s history, along with all the logos and the stories they tell. Our foremost goal is sharing baseball history, and the iconography of West Coast League’s teams and cities is something we know will transcend the Northwest.”
“I’ve been a fan of Teambrown for as long as there’s been a Teambrown,” said Rob Neyer, West Coast League Commissioner, “and we’ve been working toward this for a couple of years.”
“The WCL might be a summer league,” Brown said yesterday, “but we our goal is to bring them to fans year-round. Our leadoff designs are just the beginning, and we’ll have more great things in future weeks and months. Our slogan is History in Your Size, and we’re excited about telling the stories of all these amazing teams.”
“Last summer,” Neyer recalled, “Rob sent us enough cozy WCL t-shirts for every director and general manager (and commissioner!) in the league, and they were big hits right off the bat. I couldn’t be more thrilled for everyone to wear what I’ve been wearing, and I can’t wait to see what Teambrown comes up with next.”
Teambrown’s exclusive WCL-branded apparel and accessories are available right now from Teambrown’s website. Please follow the West Coast League and Teambrown Apparel’s social media for news about sales and new merchandise.
