HAPPY frisBee DAY!

Happy 56th Birthday, Frisbee! Thank you for being the disc of choice for Ultimate players (up until 1991).

On this day in historyWHAM-O recounts... A building inspector named Fred Morrison puttered with and refined a plastic flying disc that he sold to WHAM-O®. Introduced to the consumer market in 1957 as the Pluto Platter™ (the name inspired by the country's obsession with Unidentified Flying Objects), it was modified in 1958, renamed the FRISBEE® disc, and has become an American icon.
