Out with the old, in with the new. Some of our preparations for the 2014 season include buying new uniforms for the players to wear next season. But what happens to the old jerseys, you ask? Well, that’s where you theoretically come in.
We auctioned most of the uniforms off to fans at Dr Pepper Ballpark near the end of the season and now the RoughRiders are making the ones we held back available to the public. Fans now have the opportunity to purchase a home jersey (the type in the photo above). It could easily make for a great gift, a unique piece of sports memorabilia or even an awesome beer league softball uniform!
Here are the jerseys available and who they were worn by this past season:
- #1 – LHP Alex Claudio
- #17 – LHP Jimmy Reyes
- #23 – OF Joe Benson
- #24 – LHP Richard Bleier
- #25 – C Brett Teschner, Rangers UT Jeff Baker, Rangers RHP Joakim Soria, RHP Roman Mendez,
- #26 – OF Kalian Sams
- #30 – RHP Francisco Mendoza
- #32 – Coach/Scout James Vilade
- #33 – Hitting coach (and former Ranger) Jason Hart
- #36 – RHP Jerad Eickhoff
- #40 – RHP Arlett Mavare
- #45 – RHP Phil Klein
The jerseys are going for $100 each and all of the proceeds benefit the RoughRiders Foundation (a non-profit organization that you can read more about here). If you are interested in purchasing a jersey or have any questions, please contact LaShawn Moore of the RoughRiders at LMoore@RidersBaseball.com or at (972) 334-1978.
