Cubs teaming up with Chicago-based artist Kate Lynn Lewis for Women’s History Month collection
March is Women’s History Month and the Cubs have partnered with Chicago-based artist Kate Lynn Lewis for a limited-edition collection that blends the history of women in baseball with her contemporary style.
Proceeds will benefit Girls in the Game, a nonprofit organization that has emerged as a leading girls’ health and fitness organization in Chicago. Since its inception in 1995, Girls in the Game has empowered more than 50,000 girls to make healthier choices and develop the confidence and leadership skills they need to succeed on and off the field.
The collection is available now and includes a “Forever Yours” long-sleeve tee, “Batting Lashes” short-sleeve tee and a “Girls In The Game” screenprint poster.

The month of March is dedicated to women. Women who have broken barriers. Women who are breaking barriers. And young women and girls who will break barriers. It is with this reflection of past, present and future that this collection was created.
