this was one of the most humbling and HONEST projects we have ever worked on AND Before we get started, please have a look at the first trailer below:
It was 2016 when ’47 and Berlin Braves teamed up for A VERY SPECIAL PROJECT.
OUR MUTUAL GOAL WAS TO TRACK THE OG BRAVES OF BASEBALL, THOSE WHO won the 1960 Little League European Championship. THE VERY first GERMAN team to ever join the little league world series IN WILLIAMSPORT, PENNSYLVANIA.
IN 1960, THESE BOYS WERE 11-12 Y/O AND NOT KNOWING THAT 50+ YEARS LATER, THEY WOULD BE SUCH A great INSPIRATION FOR US TO START THE CURRENT BERLIN BRAVES ORGANISATION.
PROUD tHAT WE REPreSent SUCH A RICH AMERICAN SPORTS HISTORY IN GERMANY THAT NOT MANY PEOPLE KNOW ABOUT.
RYAN JOHNSON, JARED WHEELER AND WAYNE BEST FROM ’47 supported us in the search of THE ALL-stars from thaT TIME.
AnD JARED STRUCK GOLD THROUGH THE HELP OF THE LITTLE LEAGUE WORLD SERIES.
WE TRACKED DOWN CAPTAIN PAT WILLIAMS, PITCHER ED COLE, AND THIRD BASEMAN JOHN REALE. AFTER THAT WE DECIDED TO MEET THEM IN BOSTON.
NOT JUST TO LISTEN TO THEIR WONDERFUL STORIES AND EXPERIENCES BUT ALSO TO PERSONALLY GIVE THEM THE REPLICA JERSEYS WE DESIGNED WITH ’47 AND DEHEN 1920. AND OF-COURSE TO ENJOY SOME BASEBALL.
THE BOSTON RED SOX HOOKED US UP WITH GREAT SEATS FOR THE YANKEES VS THE RED SOX GAME IN FENWAY PARK AND ED, PAT & JOHN WERE EVEN ALLOWED ON THE FIELD. WE HONORED THEM FOR A LONG WEEKEND AND WE’VE MADE NEW FRIENDS FOR LIFE.
“A BOND THAT NEVER BREAKS”
WE HOPE YOU LIKE THE END RESULT AS MUCH AS WE DO!
