2012 Sons of Johnnie LeMaster Shirts Have Arrived!

The crack of the bat, the pop of the glove, the smell of cut grass, and new shirts from the Sons of Johnnie LeMaster. If that doesn't define baseball, we don't know what does! After months of trying to determine what our 2012 shirts should look like, we finalized our design several weeks ago, and yesterday they arrived from our vendor.

The front of our shirt is unchanged from last year, but the back of the shirt is where the real changes are. First, we replaced LeMaster and inserted BOO to the nameplate area of the shirt, this was chosen to honor the 1979 game vs. Montreal in which Johnnie wore the "BOO" jersey. Second, we used a different font for the numbers. Third, we incorporated a Gary Carter memorial design to the sleeve (on the men's shirts), and on the left chest (on the women's shirts).

Less than 50 of these shirts were printed and are being distributed (for free) to those that embody the diehard spirit of a San Francisco Giants fan. Unfortnately, none of our shirts are for sale ... we are not looking to profit from our shirts, we're just looking to share our passion with like-minded diehard Giants fans - plain and simple.

For those of you that have or are about to receive one ... wear it with pride!

The few, the proud, the Sons of Johnnie LeMaster ... see you at the yard in 2012!

Appreciate the fact that you are not looking to profit from the sale of the shirts, but if the fans want 'em, why not make them available for the cost of the production. I know I'd love one!

Thanks for the comment! We didn't distribute all 50, those that are remaining will be given out throughout the course of the season to those that stand out as die hard Giants fans. We will be watching from afar, and will gift a shirt accordingly.

I was one of three people who had "BOO" shirts made. I had black (the others had orange and white). We had weekend season tickets (Section 14, lower box, $5.00 per ticket). I still wear a number 10 Giants jersey (Johnnie once said he wore number 10 because he and Bo Derek were the perfect 10...). Can't wait for the Gmen to visit Seattle for 3 in June!

Love this blog, and the article + comments from Peter H at the Chron. My dad lived next door to Johnnie in Foster City and he was really a nice guy. We'd hang out by his garage, and one time he gave me a full set of wrist bands, batting gloves and a genuine C271 bad engraved with his name... how cool was that? And the original Boo shirt he had framed in his TV room with the letter/fine from the commissioner. Wonder where it is now...He and his wife Debbie were such nice people.

I don't know if my previous comment prompted the use of "BOO" on the back of this years' shirts, but I'd like to think so. It would be awesome to get one of them to proudly wear in Seattle!
