Custom Brett Lawrie ProPlayer Chair turns out to be a real home run
Canadian-born Brett Lawrie may not be a true native of the United States, but he is making quite a name for himself playing America’s game. Brett entered the big league as the fourth-highest drafted Canadian player of all time when he was selected 16th overall in the 2008 MLB Draft by the Milwaukee Brewers. Despite being considered one of the Brewers’ top prospects, he was dealt to the Toronto Blue Jays in December of 2010 and made his much anticipated debut with Canada’s only MLB franchise on August 5th, 2011.
Being Canadian may have made him a sentimental favourite among team supporters to start, but his persona, tenacity and explosive offensive output in his first few games quickly made him a favourite of Baseball fans everywhere. How do you top an RBI in your first at-bat and a home run just 3 games into your major league career? If you’re Brett Lawrie, you hit a Grand Slam just 5 days after making your major-league debut and you do it on your first hit, in front of your home fans!
Now in his third season with the Jays, Brett remains a fan favourite thanks to his ultra-competitive demeanour and ability to make spectacular, athletic plays. While Brett hasn’t been as much of an offensive force as he was in his first year, he continues to impress with his strong defensive play despite missing significant time due to injury. Jays fans everywhere are hoping that he can stay healthy and get his bat going once again in 2014!

About This Build
When Mike C. called us up looking for something unique to offer up as a raffle prize for his upcoming stag party we knew we had just the thing. Mike is a huge sports fan from Toronto, Ontario and with another season of Blue Jays Baseball upon us, we knew we’d hit a real home run with a custom Brett Lawrie ProPlayer Chair as a special raffle prize!
Mike supplied us with a Majestic Toronto Blue Jays Brett Lawrie jersey and just 3 short weeks after receiving it, we had his custom chair ready to go. Being local, Mike chose to pick up the chair and like usual we got a real kick out of Mike’s reaction when he first seen the chair. “This is incredible” he said while taking a seat “I want to keep it for myself!”. “That’s up to you Mike, but you might have a few disappointed guests” we replied with a laugh.
Mike called the day after the stag party to let us know that the custom Brett Lawrie ProPlayer Chair was a huge hit and raised a lot of money as a special raffle prize. Mike was also good enough to send us a photo of himself with the chair before he grudgingly handed it over to the lucky winner! Check out the photo below!
