Chicago's Jackie Robinson West All Stars are not only good at baseball, but also in the T-shirt market.
Crain's Chicago Business reports (http://bit.ly/1lan7FV) more than 4,500 yellow Jackie Robinson West "Great Lakes Champions" T-shirts have been sold since Aug. 10. The Dick's Sporting Goods location in Chicago's South Loop is the only retailer selling the item.
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.
