About the Artist

On Oct. 30, 2001, President George W. Bush stepped to the mound at Yankee Stadium. The symbolism of that pitch gripped Nathan Rueckert. Baseball was America. It brought us together. It was then the St. Louis native started Baseball Seams Co. Faith and baseball had always been the seams that stitched Nathan’s family together. Now with his own wife and kids, Nathan continues to show his love of God and country through his unique baseball art.
