MILWAUKEE — Local artist Shawn DeKay is raising money for Major League Baseball charities with some custom-designed baseball pieces.

The Milwaukee artist designed the items with the inspiration of every MLB city, using drawings from the historical, musical and baseball heritage of each team.

DeKay designed a unique Brewers Fender Stratocaster guitar and Louisville Slugger bat.

"Shawn DeKay drew inspiration for these pieces from his love of graffiti art and growing up in that scene in his hometown of Milwaukee. He chose to incorporate spray paint within his design, as it was his main medium from his early stages to his current stage," the Brewers' website says.
