Proving that MLB is working to get you to the game, as well as into garb, the league today announced an in-stadium retail promotion that gives each fan two tickets with a Majestic Athletic Replica Jersey purchase during the 2009 season.Â This program supports the recently unveiled Commissionerâ€™s Fan Initiative, which is designed to make fans aware of the affordable tickets offered at each of the ballparks across the country.
Participating MLB Clubs will provide fans two complimentary tickets with their purchase of a new Majestic Athletic Replica Jersey, and tickets can be redeemed throughout the 2009 MLB season.Â Fans can contact their stadiumâ€™s Team Store for specific retail promotion dates, which runs in nearly all locations until the beginning of June.Â Game-dates are subject to each clubâ€™s discretion and are available while supplies last.
Majestic is introducing a new generation of the MLB Replica Jersey that will be the closest version to mirror an authentic jersey ever produced, marking the largest change to the product in its history. The new jersey features official team fonts and is available with or without a playerâ€™s name and number.Â The new replica jerseys are made from durable 100% polyester double-knit materials and now feature unique club-specific front locker tags.

â€śWe are always looking for unique ways to thank fans for their support, and this new jersey brings them closer to an on-field experience through a replica product than ever before,â€ť said Howard Smith, MLB Senior Vice President, Licensing. â€śOur merchandise partners and clubs have teamed with Major League Baseball for offerings that will be popular with our fans, and Majestic continues to build upon this commitment through our over 25-year partnershipâ€ť
Further details pertaining to the in-stadium retail promotions can be found at each stadiumâ€™s Team Store. Additionally, as part of the Commissionerâ€™s Fan Initiative, Major League Baseball has unveiled the Fan Value Corner on MLB.com, which displays the numerous ticket and event promotions available to fans in addition to the opportunities highlighted above.
