CG FAMILY PLAYLIST - HAZY SHADE OF WINTER

 

Hey Everyone!

 It's been quite a year. We got a full MLB regular season and postseason in, watched a team win 107 games and get ousted in a play-in game, watched Shohei Ohtani put together the most incredible season by a player in MLB history, and saw the underdog Braves scratch and claw their way to an unlikely World Series win.

 At Classic Grit, we dropped a ton of new tees, hoodies, and lids, our Kersh Tee became a staple for a few players in the Dodgers clubhouse, and we raised over $7000 via our Good Wood Bat Show & Auction and donated it to NIVA in an effort to keep independent music venues open.

Not too shabby, eh?

 As usual, music got us through 2021, the good times and the not so good times. We reached out to our Classic Grit Family -- a collection of some of our favorite current and not-so-current MLB players, musicians, and artists -- to see which three songs were the soundtrack to their year. The result is our Hazy Shade Of Winter Playlist. It's as diverse a batch of songs as you'll find, with everything from classic rock, to hip-hop, to metal, to country, and early everything in between. Turnstile's "HOLIDAY" would have appeared about 47 times had we allowed duplicates. There's even a Bieber song! (Justin, not Shane.) There's definitely a little something for everyone.

 Happy New Year to you all, and thank you for the support We appreciate you!

 - Riley & Arthur
