While the D’Angelo brothers were selling the first official MLB pennant around the iconic Fenway Park, Sidney Farber was conducting revolutionary cancer research less than a mile away.

In 1948, Farber established the first research program in chemotherapy for children.

This February, ’47 continues its celebration of the Black Fives Era –– the time from 1904 to 1950 when all-Black basketball teams emerged and flourished amidst a racially divided nation. Despite this reality, players had the courage and wisdom to know they could make history through sport –– and that’s exactly what they did. Black Fives teams barnstormed cities across the U.S., at times playing multiple games in one day. The energy, talent, and ability to bring communities together over love for the game couldn’t go unnoticed. From Washington to Chicago to New York where the Harlem Rens went on...

The safe return of service members from war is a celebrated event, never to be taken for granted, but the effects of combat experience do not end there, and neither should anyone’s attention. With the help of organizations like Operation Hat Trick (OHT), the care needs of these heroes and their loved ones are being answered –– and in this scenario, it all started with hats.

Purveyors of elevated street fashion in Japan, Poggy (of UA&S) and YOPPI (of Hombre Nino), also have an affinity for baseball, which drove their idea to enhance...
