I saw this story on Facebook: Trash Pandas break MiLB records, sell $500K of merch in 6 weeks:
The Rocket City Trash Pandas won’t play for another 18 months, but the team is already breaking records. Merchandise sales have beat out past Minor League Baseball records, and the team has garnered the attention of major league executives.
I was in the market for a new sweatshirt, as my current rotation of Marquette University, Northern Michigan University, St. Louis Blues, Milwaukee Admirals, and Jazz 91 sweatshirts is getting a little frayed, so I rushed right out and got one:
I’ll have to keep an eye on this little team from Alabama once they get going.
(For those of you who don’t know, Trash Panda is an Internet name for raccoon.)
