GRASS PAINTER 7

The GP7, the brainchild of first base player Mel, is the 7th in a series of remote controlled baseball field liners. The predominantly black plastic 4-wheeled vehicle has a “foot print” about the size of a piece of paper. This rabble rouser of a vehicle cares less about form; the GP7 is all about function. With not one but two circuit boards, a front facing camera, a grey plastic pipe that runs from the back end to the top of the back end, and some buttons on the right side with secret functions, this grass painter is sure to please. It is currently run by remote control, however plans are in the works to go digital. As Mel describes it, it’s “A grass painter that you can operate from your phone. No more walking the field like an idiot.”

BROVARIES JERSEY

The Brovaries’ logo, on the top left breast of their Jerseys, is a hand drawn cartoon uterus and ovaries. The uterus is a baseball with two wide oval eyes and an open smile. The round baseball uterus wears a ball cap backwards. 

The team’s sponsor is the bar, The Public Lass, and on the back of the jersey is a large calligraphy “L” in yellow. Beside it, at top, reads “P.U.B.I.C.” The second line beside the “L” reads, “A.S.S.” Brovaries Captain Joanne did this. She took a little design in university.
