Majestic Athletic, makers of the official on-field uniform of Major League Baseball, in partnership with the Chicago White Sox and MLB, today officially announced Jersey Day, a special day for local baseball fans to celebrate by donning their official White Sox team jerseys in a show of fan pride for the White Sox home game on May 22 against the Minnesota Twins.
Jersey Day encourages fans to proudly wear their White Sox jersey on Friday, May 22 to work, school and all over Chicago that evening to celebrate their love for the sport and the White Sox. Similar celebrations are scheduled at every Major League ballpark.
"There's no better way of wearing your passion than a favorite team jersey. The new Majestic Cool Base Jersey delivers both superior technology and style creating the most comfortable wearing occasion to date," said Jim Pisani, VF Licensed Sports Group President. "Jersey Day provides a formal jersey wearing occasion for fans in all 30 MLB markets, so they can unify in celebration of their favorite team and America's Pastime."
Majestic will celebrate Jersey Day with the help of 30 All-Star caliber players. Fans can keep up with White Sox Jersey Day on social media by following @whitesox and posting #JerseydayCWS on Twitter and Instagram.
"White Sox Jersey Day is a great opportunity for our fans to come together and show off their support for the team," said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. "Even our broadcasters will join the fun on Friday sporting their favorite Sox jerseys. We hope fans will join us and show off their own favorite Sox jerseys not only at U.S. Cellular Field, but all throughout the city of Chicago."
Majestic this season has introduced the Cool Base Jersey, a replica uniform top that utilizes the same Cool Base fabric technology worn by every player on the field during games. This next generation jersey comes in a lightweight, breathable form after being created through extensive consumer research and product testing. White Sox Cool Base Jerseys are available at your local retailer, the Chicago Sports Depot and on MLB.com and MajesticAthletic.com to prepare for Jersey Day.
