Ben’s Biz: Now Wearable!

In June of 2015, the official Ben’s Biz logo made its debut. This was a professional milestone for me.

Ever since the logo — designed by the magnificent Sean Kane — appeared, dozens if not scores of people have asked me the following question: “So when am I gonna get to buy a T-shirt featuring your beaming, beatific countenance?”

That question has a new answer: “Now!”

The official Ben’s Biz T-shirt is available for purchase!

The official Ben’s Biz T-shirts, Made in the USA by Original Retro Brand, retail for $20. They look and feel great, and a portion of every purchase benefits Minor League Baseball Charities, supporting youth baseball, community outreach and disaster relief efforts in Minor League cities across the country. Every shirt comes with a free autograph, which you will surely frame and hang in a prominent location:

I couldn’t find anyone to model one of my shirts for me, so I took to the streets myself.

Once again, the shirt is AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE! Supplies are limited, because the market for this shirt is limited. More than anything, this is about spreading the word: the word that there’s a guy who writes about the business and culture of Minor League Baseball, visits many different ballparks, tries to be original and funny and not too much of a sycophant and  — hey! — his stuff might be worth reading. Thanks to all who’ve spread the word thus far.

AND THAT’S NOT ALL!

There’s another Ben’s Biz T-shirt, and this one is not for sale. This one will only be available to an exclusive fraternity: the Designated Eater.

In 2012 I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Since then, at each ballpark I visit, I’ve recruited a designated eater to consume the ballpark cuisine that my gluten-free diet prohibits. Going forward, every designated eater will receive the T-shirt seen above. I’ll be bringing them with me on my next road trip, which kicks off Aug. 1 in Sacramento.

So there you have it: Ben’s Biz is in T-shirt form, and these shirts are AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go work on my modeling poses.

      Hi Fernando —

      The designated eater shirts are not available for sale. I’m swamped now but in the offseason I will figure out a system for getting the shirts to past DEs who want one. Thanks to you and your Dad for joining me in Stockton!
