Friends - your support has been absolutely incredible. We are nearly half way through the Kickstarter funding campaign and now have 67 awesome backers with nearly $10,000 funds raised! Unbelievable. We still have 18 days left to raise a minimum of $2,000 to make this project reality. LET'S DO THIS!
I'm very excited to reveal the project t-shirt design...see pic below. I'll be having a graphics design guru touch up the image in the coming weeks and really make it pop on the shirt. The wording "America At The Seams" will be boldly titled underneath the image and the shirt will also include a cool "I'm a Backer" yoke design under the back collar. It'll be an awesome shirt to wear this 4th of July!
ARIZONA: The Story of Dave Stevens
I'll be telling part of Dave Stevens' story when creating the state of Arizona. Dave holds the state high school record for most career walks and most walks in a single season...a good eye, right? Sort of.
You see, Dave has no legs. He's a congenital amputee and runs with his arms. His gritty and relentless hustle earned him playing time with the St. Paul Saints in 1996 and to this day, he's the only minor leaguer to play without legs. My recent Facebook post about Dave has over 1,000 likes and 400+ shares in just one day!
So thankful for all of you. This is going to be fun. Baseball is more than just a game.
