Bases Loaded Authentic Clothing and Kaps Announces its Historic Negro Leagues Wool Baseball Jacket is Now Available

Bases Loaded Authentic Clothing and Kaps (B.L.A.C.K) has just announced that its iconic Negro Leagues Wool Baseball Jacket is now available. These jackets are part of a special line of clothing that the company has created to commemorate the important contributions that African-American players brought to the game of baseball before their acceptance into the major leagues. As part of this effort, the company has taken extreme steps to preserve the rich history and culture that the Negro Leagues brought to America’s favorite pastime. These newly launched Negro Official League wool jackets have been available for immediate shipment since Dec 18th 2020. B.L.A.C.K (Bases Loaded Authentic Clothing and Kaps) itself is a company that was founded in 1998 with its sole focus on the education of African American history as well as the support of the organizations that helped create that history.

Company representative, Kimberly Greene talked about how the Negro National League was established on February 13, 1920, and was the first organized African-American baseball league. It was composed of eight teams: these were the Giants, Chicago Giants, Cuban Stars, Dayton Marcos, Detroit Stars, Indianapolis ABCs, Kansas City Monarchs, and the St. Louis Giants. She says that they are proud to have produced several items this year to help celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Negro National League.

Greene added, “We saw an opportunity to change how the Negro Leagues were portrayed. We were also blessed to be able to spend a lot of time with Negro League players which helped drive the determination to make sure that the history that they helped to create was well represented and accurate.” Greene mentioned that this new wool jacket features a black wool vest area with a big ‘N’ on one front side that represents the Negro League’s logo and a large number ‘20’ on the other side which represents the year the Negro League was officially established and the fact that 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the league being founded. Its lighter color sleeves are each adorned with 5 emblems representing the most well-known and long-standing Negro League teams.

Greene went on to say that this new jacket in their popular line of negro league apparel has a lot more going for it than just its historical and nostalgic value. The jacket itself is well-made, looks good, and has many attractive features. She stated it all starts with its superior quality wool body and PU (synthetic) leather sleeves. It also has two side slip pockets that are decorated with the same synthetic leather material that the sleeves are made of and a simple and decorative front snap closure system.

Greene even mentioned that it’s such a quality item that it should only be maintained by having it dry cleaned. She pointed out that in their collection of jackets that represent the Negro Baseball League they also have a 100th Anniversary Twill jacket, a 100th Anniversary traditional Satin jacket, and a logoed genuine leather jacket. Bases Loaded Authentic Clothing and Kaps also produces popular Negro League clothing items such as jerseys, tee shirts, caps, and other items honoring the league’s greatest players.

Greene admitted that while once they were at one time solely focused on items that commemorated the greatness of Negro League baseball they have since expanded their apparel lines into other important areas of black history. This includes Buffalo Soldier items, Tuskegee Airmen items, and even a one of a kind, race appropriate doll collection for children. During the recent pandemic, Bases Loaded Authentic Clothing and Kaps designed their own line of non-medical face coverings that represented different aspects of black history.
