Crockett Foundation Store
Thank you for visiting the Crockett Foundation Store. By purchasing through our website not only are you getting top quality apparel, baseball shirts, baseball hats and wrestling shirts but you are also helping a veteran in need.
With each sale that we make, we donate a portion of the proceeds to our a veteran or veteran service animal in need. Some of the things that we purchase for these wounded heros are post-traumatic stress disorder trained service animals which help veterans cope with trauma. We also purchase music instruments for veterans which has been proven to help veterans with PTSD to rehabilitate with music therapy. Another way we help is to buy yoga equipment and train them in yoga therapy which will help them tremendously as well.
We set up our online shop and wrestling shirts store to also help wounded service animals by ways of paying for their veterinary care that is needed and also hope those canine hero’s find a loving home to be adopted into.
More Than a Wrestling Shirts Store
One of the more popular ways that we raise money is through the sale of our wrestling t-shirts. These wrestling shirts are sold at pro wrestling events involving our legendary Tag Team Partners who consist of Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat, The Rock “N” Roll Express (Ricky Morton and Robert Gibson), Nickla “Baby Doll” Roberts, J.J. Dillon, Tommy Young and Bob Caudle. Many of the events that we team with involve helping veterans in need with a portion of ticket sales wrestling shirts going towards helping.
For those of you didn’t know, Jim Crockett Sr. is also the man who brought professional baseball to Charlotte, North Carolina by building The Jim Crockett Sr Memorial Park. The stadium was originally built in 1940 by Clark Griffith for the Charlotte Hornets minor league baseball team. In 1972 the Charlotte Hornets became the Charlotte Twins, an AA Farm team of the Minnesota Twins.
In 1976 the team became the Charlotte Orioles under General Manager, Frances Crockett Ringley who is also a board member of the Crockett Foundation. The team stayed around until 1988. You can commemorate Charlotte baseball history by purchasing some of our Crockett baseball swag above.
