Fans longing to wear official Negro Leagues baseball gear now have the opportunity to do so, thanks to Dick’s Sporting Goods. The retail giant unveiled a limited edition collection of retro merchandise featuring tees, hoodies and pennants from select franchises like the Kansas City Monarchs, New York Black Yankees, Detroit Stars and Cleveland Buckeyes.

In December 2020, Major League Baseball finally recognized the Negro Leagues as a “major league,” citing an error on their part to overlook something so important to American history and the fight for racial equality.

“With this action, MLB seeks to ensure that future generations will remember the approximately 3,400 players of the Negro Leagues during this time period as Major League-caliber ballplayers. Accordingly, the statistics and records of these players will become a part of Major League Baseball’s History.”

Having the opportunity to purchase apparel from the historic organization that helped launch the careers of Jackie Robinson and Hank Aaron also legitimizes the permanent impact of the Negro Leagues.

We linked some bestsellers below, but you can shop the entire collection at Dick’s Sporting Goods. While there, also check out the the HBCU collection. There are hundreds of styles to pay homage to historically Black institutions.
