Brewers release limited 'Play by the Rules. Keep your Distance' t-shirts in support of nonprofit

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Milwaukee Brewers are stepping up to help during the COVID-19 pandemic and giving fans an opportunity to get involved. 

The team has made a limited number of t-shirts with the beloved ball-in-glove logo but with a twist; the team separated the "m" and "b" to encourage and support social distancing. The logo is accompanied with the tagline "Play by the Rules. Keep your Distance." 

The special t-shirts went on sale Monday, April 13 with net proceeds supporting the Brewers Community Foundation’s (BCF) efforts to raise money for local nonprofit organizations experiencing increased demands due to COVID-19.

T-shirts, $25, are available in adult sizes S – XXL, and can be purchased on the Brewers MLB auction site as well as Brewers Community Foundation website. T-shirts can also be purchased via phone from the Brewers Team Store via phone, 414-902-4750, Monday – Friday from 10a.m. – 5p.m.

According to a news release, BCF harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in the Greater Milwaukee area and throughout Wisconsin. Over the past nine years, BCF has generated more than $42 million to support local nonprofits in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs. In 2019, approximately 200 nonprofit organizations received funding through the Foundation’s initiatives.
