It all started when nationally known artist, Bob Commander, was commissioned to create characters for an on-course card game for golf.   When he drew "Beach" lounging on a lawn chair in a bunker, we all knew great things were about to happen. "Beach", "Linx", "Lost", "Birdie" and the gang quickly took on distinctive personalities.  Coupled with the internationally recognized sport mantra, "Be the Ball", the characters became unstoppable. They found their way onto sportswear, pillows, hat clips, ball markers, party ware, art prints and much more.  Other ball sports and THE LADIES, "Teena", "Parla", "Sandy", and "Acey" quickly joined the BTB Family. More BTB 'Ball Sport' characters from the 'City of Bounce' will be appearing soon.. Be the Ball merchandise is available on line, at athletic events, retail stores and from sales representatives and licensees.
