From an online article about Kentucky's Camp Breckinridge, we come to find out that it came about during WWII and covered 35,000+ acres in Henderson, Union, and Webster counties close to Morganfield. All in all, about 40,000 soldiers prepped for the war, here, including future baseball Hall of Famer Jackie Robinson and the 101st Airborne.
At Camp Breck, Jackie served as a coach for army athletics until he received an honorable discharge in November 1944. While he was stationed there, Jackie met a former player for the KC Monarchs of the Negro American League who urged Jackie to write the team and ask for a tryout. And the rest, as they say, is history.
So, out that that comes this shirt. If you want to salute Kentucky's great military and/or baseball heritage, here's a design sitting on top of a shirt in Army colors.
