EASTON, PA – With a trip to the World Series comes some very cool upgrades at Progressive Field, not the least of which are the World Series patches that get sewn on the Tribe’s jerseys.
As you might imagine, those patches don’t just magically appear on the jerseys. Nope. They are sewn on individually by a group of folks from Easton, Pennsylvania, who admit that baseball is in their blood.
They work for Majestic, the company that makes all the uniforms for Major League Baseball. Many of them have worked there their entire adult lives, giving them quite the perspective into the changes that uniforms have gone through over the years.
And this year, they are the ones who are sewing the World Series patches onto the Indians’ uniforms. And they have to get it all done in the break between the League Championships and the start of the Series! You can meet some of them and see some pictures of the actual process in our photo gallery above.
We’re told that the patches will be on sale to the public at the same places Majestic fan gear is sold, too, if you want to start your own sewing project.
The World Series can only be seen on Fox 8! Here’s the full schedule:
