The Butcher Boy's Wallet - Vintage Baseball Glove Wallet
Made in Alaska!
In baseball, a "Butcher Boy" is a batter who squares around to show bunt, but then pulls the bat back slightly and swings at the pitch. The goal is to chop down on the ball and hit it past the charging corner basemen. The origin of the archaic term was coined by Hall of Fame manager Casey Stengel who found inspiration by watching the motion of his local butcher while cleaving meat.
