In 1937, the PF Flyers story began by delivering quality American footwear for sport and leisure. In the same year, one of the most iconic cartoon characters in American history, Popeye the Sailor, took to the mound to play baseball against his arch-nemesis, Bluto, in a classic animated short. The iconic duo battle it out in front of a roaring crowd in an excitement-filled game featuring fireworks, grand slams, and an amazing come-from-behind win from Popeye.
