Apparel By Home Run was founded by Vietnam War veteran Glen Newell. Spending years on the sea with the navy, tending to wounded soldiers from the Vietnam War, Glen became very acclimated with the sea. After service, he couldn’t help but to acquire a deep passion for fishing. Many decades later, at the age of 80, Glen founded Apparel By Home Run. Built on the idea of innovative, attractive UPF apparel designed by real artists and anglers, the company was born in late 2018.
