In the spirit of celebrating a new season of America’s greatest pastime, PF has created a capsule collection partnering with the games top players. Mitchell Bat Company, Ebbets Field Flannels, and Leather Head Sports have all teamed up to participate in honoring PF’s deep history with Baseball and celebrating a 78 year rivalry between the two iconic characters.
In 1937, the PF Flyers story began by delivering quality American footwear for sport and leisure. In the same year, one of the most iconic cartoon characters in American history, Popeye the Sailor, took to the mound to play baseball against his arch-nemesis, Bluto. In a classic animated Popeye short, Popeye’s Pirates take on Bluto’s Bears. The duo battle it out in front of a roaring crowd in an excitement filled game featuring fireworks, grand slams, and an amazing come from behind win from Popeye.
The PF Flyers Opening Day Collection includes shoes, hats, baseballs, and bats. Look for the Opening Day Collection online exclusively at PFFlyers.com.
