Money from T-shirt sales will go to the Jackie Robinson West program. The shirt sells for $20 each.

Dick's officials say the store started with 300 shirts after the team qualified for the World Series tournament. Those sold out in a matter of days. The next shipment of 500 shirts left the shelves in two hours.

Dick's says a shipment of 7,000 Jackie Robinson West All Stars "National Champions" T-shirts will be available Tuesday.
