I Need Help! Creative Friends Wanted.
For several years now, I’ve been looking for a way to promote my blog and twitter accounts while I ballhawk. Lots of people are interested I what I do at the park, and people aren’t shy about asking me about myself and what I do. While word of mouth is the best form of advertising, it has its pitfalls. I don’t like talking to many people while I’m doing my thing. I’ll talk freely to you if, and only if:
- You’re in uniform, baseball or military,
- You’re a ballhawk I respect,
- You’re a stadium worker I respect,
- You’re under the age of 12 and want to talk ballhawking.
I’m not a hardass or anything; I just like to stay focused. If anything, I’m the complete opposite of a hardass. Before gates open, I’ll blab your ears off and you’ll in all probability avoid me the next time you see me. I’m fairly confident that I’m a pretty nice fella. But, once those gates open, I like to let my resume do my talking for me. Focus and visualization are the name of the game, and it’s tough to do either while carrying on 5 or 6 different conversations simultaneously. Speak softly and carry a big, well… baseball collection.
Now that I’ve probably come off as a jerk and offended you, I’d like to ask you a favor. I need YOUR help designing my ballhawking T-shirt. After much thought and deliberation, it has been established that one of the most efficient means of purveying my blog and charitable activity would be a custom made t-shirt. However, designing this shirt is rather open-ended. I could put an endless amount of things on the shirt, and I don’t quite know where to start. Here are the criteria I’ve outlined so far. The shirt must:
- Be a t-shirt. No softball sleeves.
- Be a neutral color, as to be worn while ballhawking both teams.
- Be a bright color, as to be noticeable on television or in a big crowd.
- Have my blog address and Twitter handle somewhere on the back.
- Also make reference to my work with PIFB this season.
So, send me some suggestions in regards to color schemes, fonts, font size, taglines, design, what it should say on the front/back, etc.
