CHICAGO (AP) - Chicago’s Jackie Robinson West All Stars are not only good at baseball, but also in the T-shirt market.

Crain’s Chicago Business reports (https://bit.ly/1lan7FV) more than 4,500 yellow Jackie Robinson West “Great Lakes Champions” T-shirts have been sold since Aug. 10. The Dick’s Sporting Goods location in Chicago’s South Loop is the only retailer selling the item.

Money from T-shirt sales go to the Jackie Robinson West program. The shirt sells for $20 each.

Dick’s officials say the store started with 300 shirts after the team qualified for the World Series tournament. Those sold out in a matter of days. Following shipments of that T-shirt left the shelves in hours.

Store officials say a shipment of 7,000 Jackie Robinson West All Stars “National Champions” T-shirts were sold out Tuesday.
