History: The Hebrew Orphan Asylum was a philanthropic organization designed to care for Jewish orphans. The original building was on East 77th Street, but it was the ballfield at the later facility on Amsterdam Avenue and 136th Street that hosted occasional Negro league baseball games. The Asylum also featured their own baseball and basketball teams. In another curious baseball connection, the New York Yankees had originally planned to purchase the Asylum grounds to construct a new stadium in Manhattan, but ended up choosing the Bronx instead for Yankee Stadium when the land deal fell apart.

I have purchased many other items in the Large size and they have been perfect, but this Hoodie was very small. I just shipped it back and requested an exchange for an XL. Hopefully it arrives quickly and fits better.
Bought this item for a friend for a special event - he was delighted with it. Arrived quickly and product was of high-quality. EFF rocks!
Very good quality and received quickly.
