Home Run Jersey

 

BABE RUTH NEW YORK YANKEES ROAD JERSEY c.1928-30.

Babe Ruth is still breaking records. A New York Yankees jersey worn by the baseball legend sold at auction last Saturday for a record-breaking $5.64 million, making it the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia ever. Hunt Auctions partnered with Babe Ruth’s family, along with select additions from other collections, to offer the largest assemblage of over 400 personal items and artifacts ever auctioned.

The previous record for the most expensive piece of sports memorabilia sold was set by another Babe Ruth jersey from 1920, which went for $4,415,658. What made this jersey so special and rare was the fact it was the only time in franchise history when “Yankees” appeared on the front of a road uniform.
 


 
“The legacy and significance of Babe Ruth to the game of baseball and American popular culture is unmatched by any other figure in the history of this country,” president of Hunt Auctions David Hunt said in a statement. “While the record-setting prices attained today are certainly astonishing I am not surprised at all given the incredible materials and the mythical status the Babe holds in the history of this country.”

The Nutrition Buzz: Intermittent Fasting

 

 
Last month we introduced Sarah Wragge, our contributing nutrition guru who we’ve brought on board to give us the real deal on the latest wellness and nutrition trends buzzing around the fitness universe. “Intermittent fasting” is the trend du jour, which both athletes and those looking to lose weight are integrating into their eating plan. 16:8, Eat Fast Eat, and 5:2 are just a few of the specific types of intermittent fasts which all refer to a schedule of how many hours or days you eat vs. don’t eat — or fast.

Although it’s not a diet per se — as intermittent fasting doesn’t refer to what you eat, but when you eat — the results can be quite dramatic for both sport performance and weight loss. Like all diets however, there is a right and a wrong way to do it. After hearing a friend say she was going to try intermittent fasting because she could eat whatever she wanted all day and then starve until noon (wrong!), I knew we had to get the facts straight for our readers — the pros, cons, and whether it’s right for you.

STYLE OF SPORT: What is intermittent fasting?

SARAH WRAGGE: Intermittent fasting is giving your body a break from food for a certain period of time. There a several different ways to do the fast. The most common is to stop eating at certain time and allow at least 12-16 hours before you eat again. Read More

Celebrating the brand’s most popular models, Home of Classics is led by the Stan Smith, Superstar 80s, and Continental 80 that have transcended cultures and generations to go from performance athletic shoes to coveted fashion sneakers. The lineup also features the Supercourt, Torsion Comp, S.C. Premiere, Nizza RF, Rivalry L0, and A.R. Trainer. 

 

STAN SMITH, THE MAN; STAN SMITH, THE BOOK

 

Highlighting a few of the models, the Stan Smith is perhaps the world’s most recognized tennis shoe, first released in 1973 and worn by the tennis legend namesake. The recently reissued Continental 80 was first designed in France in 1986 and remixes heritage with modern style in a tonal white on white colorway. The Superstar 80s represents 50 years of adidas court experience, taking numerous design cues from the archive and blending them into a new interpretation. The high-top 1975 basketball shoe Nizza Hi RF has been adopted by skateboarding culture and now features an essential vulcanized rubber sole.
