Cubs Farm Team To Wear Mister Rogers Cardigan Jerseys
Instead of balls and strikes, I feel like I might get a great story and learn the importance of house shoes while wearing one of these jerseys.
It looks like it's only for one game though. We're good with that, right?
In case you didn't know, the Chicago Cubs have a minor league affiliate in South Bend, Indiana.
Mr. Rogers iconic cardigan will replace the South Bed Cubs slightly less iconic jersey for one day, Sunday, August 12.
The cardigan uniforms will be worn in conjunction with Mister Rogers Day, the 50th year anniversary of the show.
According to MILB.com, "The South Bend Cubs are one of the few minor league ballclubs in the nation to host an event honoring Fred Rogers for the anniversary."
There's good and bad news about the jerseys though. If you were looking for a replica of the jersey, here's the bad news.
The good news is, the proceeds will benefit a local PBS affiliate.
