Tonight, thanks to @eastonfastpitch
, I got to do something REALLY special for someone who REALLY deserved it.
2.5 months ago I had the crazy idea to ask Easton to create player-specific, ultra-custom catcher’s gear for the Easton-sponsored teams at the #WCWS
We met with senior, @delanieewisz
’s family, talked to her friends & created MEANINGFUL & PERSONAL gear- our goal was to make her feel like a big-leaguer.
I’ve never seen a cooler, more personal set of gear & Lanie’s emotional response made it one of my most favorite WCWS memories to date.
To know Lanie is to love Lanie & my hope is that this gear helps her feel how I see her: a beautiful, confident, badass leader.
This gear boasted so many personal elements- an exact replica of her sister @swiszzz
’s scar, but we turned it into a cross.
Her handwritten tattoo she has for her brother Hunter who’s now in heaven.
Her siblings initials, an American Flag, her autograph stamped all over it, her number & so much more.
