Here’s something you don’t see every day.

I’m guessing you could count on one hand the number of times Women’s Wear Daily has run feature pieces on baseball (items referring to baseball caps as accessories do not count).

But here’s a major profile on the venerated writer Roger Angell. Didn’t realize he was a fashion icon.

Here’s the slideshow that ran with the piece, photos by Brigitte Lacombe.

Actually, I plugged “baseball” into the WWD search window and came back with 1,2o1 hits. Haven’t gone through them all, but I’m willing to bet they’re mostly along the lines related to ballplayers serving as spokesmen for stores or coming out with a line of clothing, etc.

Be sociable, share the Bookshelf!
