Take me out to a ball game!

At Smathers & Branson® we are fortunate to have a great collaborative relationship with our customers. Much of our line is inspired by customers’ requests for certain patterns, schools or clubs. After years of fielding the question “when are you going to make Major League Baseball products??” we are proud to announce our MLB collection.

Our initial offering will include memorabilia for the Braves, Orioles, Red Sox, Cubs, Reds, Tigers, Twins, Mets, Yankees, Phillies, Cardinals, Rangers and Nationals.  We launched the accessories earlier this month and you can be on the lookout for belts in mid-May!  Visit to purchase your MLB products today!  Don’t see your team?  Let us know by emailing us at
