The National Puncs' Lao Tzu is a natural at the plate. At the plate, Lao is like water; he knows how to go with a pitch. (Just don't ask him to try to go the other way.)

A refreshingly relaxed and centered athlete, in the outfield Lao always knows the right path to the ball, though the way to the ball has no name.

Although his ambition is sometimes questioned in the press, Lao leaves the stadium pleased with his performance after every game, content in accomplishing what he could, and unconcerned with what might have been, or with that which he could not control.

Amid a 15-game hot-streak last season during which Lao Tzu smashed an astonishing 12 homeruns, Lao Tzu discussed his approach to hitting and the reason for his success:

"I do not know its name, and I give it the designation of the Tao. Making an effort further to give it a name I call it The Great. Great, it passes on in constant flow. Passing on, it becomes remote. Having become remote, it then returns. Therefore the Tao is great; Heaven is great; Earth is great; and the sage leader is also great. Also, I've been choking up on the bat and closing up my stance a little."

Artwork featured on front left chest is an original hand drawing of the tao character. The back of the shirt features the #69 and the Name L. TZU.
