LEAD TIME:

Established in Wilimington, NC in 2018, The Port City Pickles are a loose collection of baseball outsiders in pursuit of the purest form of the game. Little strategy beyond kindness and stewardship guides this gang of creatives, nerds, and outdoorsy types. While sloth and beach vibes drench this crew like the brine they soak in, they have managed to travel well outside the comfy confines of smoke and surf from which they dwell. Road trips to Pittsburgh and West Virginia bind the early daze of this squad to the notorious Dock Ellis League, while current efforts to preserve the legacy of their home field and community at large has played an important role in the recent past since last year's pandemic and period of transformative social justice. One such effort was to document the career of Wilmington's first World Series winner, Sam Bowens. Several teammates brought their talents while others lent financial support through fundraising to capture a conversation with Fred Bowens, Sam’s younger brother. 

A portion of every Sandlot Team sale will go towards supporting Sandlot baseball teams and their charitable causes. A small percentage of all Port City Pickles sales goes to ongoing efforts to research and disseminate Negro League Semi and Professional Baseball history in Wilmington, NC. If you are unaware of the events that occurred in Wilmington in 1898 The Pickles encourage you to read David Zucchino’s Wilmington’s Lie and to watch “Wilmington on Fire” by Christopher Everett.
