The Design: We call this graphic ‘Diamond’ and it’s our secondary mark for Big Fly. My original intent was to name it ‘Touch ‘Em All’ on account we’re a home run themed brand and it just made sense. But my thought process when we were conceptualizing Big Fly Gear was to honor one of the greatest home run calls in World Series history. Tom Cheek, the Hall of Fame announcer for the Toronto Blue Jays, was at the mic when Joe Carter hit the 3-run, walk-off home run off Mitch Williams to decide the 1993 World Series. As Carter rounded 3rd base and was headed to home plate, Cheek simply stated, ‘Touch ‘em all, Joe! You’ll never hit a bigger home run in your life.’ Oh so true. At one point in his illustrious career, Cheek had a run of 4,306 consecutive regular season broadcasts. Cheek passed away in October of 2005 and was posthumously awarded the Ford C. Frick Award in 2013.
