A medium-weight cotton loopback sweatshirt cut in a new improved comfort-fit. Featuring a small chest emblem and a large back-print, inspired by the 94th Bomb Group and baseball.

By 1945, USAAF teams in Britain were playing baseball regularly, and while stationed in Bury St Edmonds, the 94th Bomb Group decided on a unique way to celebrate the Allied victory – using a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress nicknamed “The Better Half” to deliver the first ball for their base tournament! The stunt was authorised by base Commander Colonel Charles B Dougher and took several attempts but was finally achieved and the four-engine giant pitched from 300 feet at a phenomenal 175 miles per hour. The ultimate speed demon!

Original inspiration

Based on WW2 USAAF 94TH BOMB GROUP.
