A good friend was planning a Star Wars art show and kindly asked me to participate. I told him that if I had a good idea by the end of the weekend I would happily join.
Around the same time I was making some felt patches for my own softball team to celebrate the end of the season. My influence was my Grandpa Jim's 1955 Softball Championship patch that he has on his wall to this day.
All of a sudden it made perfect sense that Star Wars would have some pretty amazing baseball teams and logos and it was a slippery slope to where we are now. When my mom got a good laugh from the Mustafar Smokies, I knew I had something to share.
Uncommon Leagues is driven by humour, creativity, perfectionism and nostalgia!
