With a background in baseball and sports administration, Jose Mateo, who we all know as "Peligro" saw an opportunity to launch a custom sportswear and goods shop in Washington Heights to meet the demand of custom sports uniforms during the boom of community led tournaments throughout New York City.
For the last thirty years, Peligro has built a loyal base of customers with a need for high quality products and quick turnaround and accelerated our growth from sportswear to custom promotional products for companies and projects of all sizes.
Peligro Sports provides the essentials and custom Baseball gear and Screen Printing needed to make our community feel an edge on the field. Our brand is rooted in creating a unique experience tailored to the specific needs of the teams to ensure their performance is at the best level to execute plays. We rally behind our athletes and understand their fight to take their game to a maximum level.
Mateo grew up in Washington Heights in the shadow of Yankee Stadium. Like many young kids from the Dominican Republic growing up in the city, baseball became a part of the routine of daily life as naturally as drawing breath.
The crack of wooden bats and the snap of leather gloves as they close around a fly ball inspired "Peligro" to participate in the "Mecca" of baseball culture in New York City.
