Josh Bach

Baseball Theme Neckties

Game Tied

The die-hard baseball fan is in it for life. Take my friend Sam, a Boston native now living in Boise. He convinced his wife Lisa to give their son the middle name “Fenway,” after the home field of his beloved Red Sox. (This was after she nixed “Nomar,” the first name of a now long departed Boston shortstop. I say Lisa picked her battles wisely.) Sam cringes at the occasional talk of knocking down Fenway Park, and with every visit home, he makes a pilgrimage to his beloved diamond.

Josh Bach has created the perfect
souvenirs for your favorite baseball buff. His 100% silk ties feature distinctive baseball graphics, helping your favorite fan root, root, root in a subtle, elegant way. We’re offering two inspired designs.

One features all manner of pitches—fastball, slider, forkball, palmball, and, my fave, knuckleball. It’s an instructional-graphic print any baseball geek would die for. In fact, anybody with an appreciation of intriguing and understated graphics would love this.

The second highlights long-since demolished baseball parks in beautiful architectural renderings, perfect for the devotee who still can’t reconcile the Brooklyn Dodgers with the L.A. Dodgers, and talks about Ebbets Field like it’s still standing. This print also makes a selective offering for those with a keen architectural bent.

Josh Bach is a genius at designing “celebrations of the unexpected, the overlooked, and the uncommon.” With these ties, we think he hit one out of the park.

    I think Diana hit the nail on the head today. There are a lot of ways you can show your team spirit (and as the mother of a little girl named Maris, I'm not about to pick on a little boy with the middle name Fenway, or Nomar for that matter), and these ties are a particularly classy way of doing it! When I first heard about them, I was worried that they'd be "too" novelty (know what I mean)? But when I saw the ties firsthand, I was excited that the patterns were subtle and slightly retro. They'd add just a little dash of personality to your favorite fan's wardrobe, and are an excellent gift idea. What do you think?

    I've seen this product and it is really great. The tie is high quality and the designs are subtle. (They sort of remind me of a tie that Frank and Deb bought me years ago that has a subtle Micky Mouse ears pattern. I still have that tie and wear it when (a) a tie is required but (b) I want to be a bit of a rebel.) These ties require no James Dean rebel streak; the designs are baseball. What can be more American and more accepted in the stuffiest of board rooms than baseball? If you have any thoughts on getting one of these I'd jump on it fast.

    The baseball park tie has the name Keith Hammonds written all over it - this pal of mine spent a summer driving all over the US to visit all the major league baseball parks, and he eats-sleeps-breathes baseball, only downside is that he is a Yankees fan

    Waita minute Emily. Is your daughter named after Roger Maris?
