“What does a girl wear to her first baseball game?” I asked, waving the two free Giants tickets in the air like a pennant. Well, I knew for sure what tote bag would be appropriate. My LL Bean Boat and Tote.
I’ve had this bag for a few years and it’s great for a trip to the city, the library, to the park, picnics, anywhere. It’s a classic look that fits well in urban and suburban environs.
The Boat and Tote was inspired by ice carriers back in 1945. In the 1960s LL Bean started offering the cream bag with contrasting red or blue trim.
All these years later it’s a true American classic, still made from 100 percent cotton in Brunswick, Maine. Now we have an array of options in size, color, and monograms.
As for my first baseball game … I enjoyed roaming the vast ballpark, seeing a double play, and cheering on the team. The game went 14 innings and ended with The Giants beating The Padres, 6-5. But, most importantly, my custom-made pennant survived the entire evening of enthusiastic waving.
