Where to buy Atlanta World Series baseball jerseys, hats, jerseys, more MLB fan equipment without offensive team name, mascot highlighted

Author: | Posted in Sports No comments

Atlanta’s Major League Baseball team has reached the World Series for the first time in over 20 years. Many fans either hop on the bandwagon or rediscover a long-lost love for their old team. If you’re one of those fans, you might be looking to fill up on some new fan equipment you can wear during the World Series against the Houston Astros, or hopefully rock while celebrating after their big win if things go like Atlanta.

Despite the enthusiasm, some fans are still upset that the Atlanta franchise has not yet changed their team name and mascot, which is largely seen as offensive to Indians. Oregonian / OregonLive has a policy where it does not use team names, sports teams that have mascots, or names that may be perceived as derogatory to Indians. The Washington Football Team moved from their offensive team name in 2020. And Cleveland’s MLB team officially announced that they were changing their team name to “Guardians” earlier this year.

Here’s a look at some Atlanta MLB team and World Series merchandise that can be purchased online, including jerseys, hats, shirts, pennants and more, refrain include the team name, mascot or Native American images.

Do you want something that reflects what the players on the field want to wear? This hat is about as good as it can get. The mounted version of Atlanta New Era 2021 World Series Bound Home Sidepatch 59FIFTY Hat in Navy / Red ($ 43.99).
