Baseball Teams Offer the Shirts Off Their Backs in Jersey Giveaways

Baseball Teams Offer the Shirts Off Their Backs in Jersey Giveaways

The long and grueling baseball season can wear on the strongest of fans and players. The season becomes even longer when a team fails to live up to their potential or, sometimes, performs just as badly as expected. To keep things fresh and give fans an incentive to come to the ballpark, teams often plan a rolling lineup of enticing promotions and giveaways.

Bobbleheads and pennants dot the landscape of MLB freebies but some of the biggest drawing power comes near the end of the season when teams literally give fans the jerseys off their backs. The event goes by many names but the basic concept is that the game-worn jerseys from each player are awarded by raffle. Money raised goes to various team charities.

Here are some of the announced games with jersey giveaways local fans can look forward to in the coming weeks:

Kansas City Royals

Saturday, September 17th against the Chicago White Sox

The Royals' "Shirts Off Their Backs" fundraiser features $1 instant win scratch tickets. The tickets give fans a chance to win a post-game visit to the field to accept an autographed game-worn jersey from a random player. Proceeds benefit The Shirley Fund.
