The New York Yankees® and Modell’s Sporting Goods®Launch Exclusive 2009 World Series® Champions Ring T-shirt With Proceeds to Benefit Local Youth Baseball Teams

Last Friday Modell’s announced that it will be carrying a brand-new, exclusive, New York Yankees 2009 World Series Championship ring T-shirt.  The Championship Ring Tee, made by Majestic Athletic and officially licensed by Major League Baseball, will don an image of the classic and timeless 2009 World Series Championship ring.

The New York Yankees 2009 World Series Championship Ring Tee will be on sale for a limited time only in all Modell’s New York metropolitan locations,  beginning Wednesday, April 28, 2010—available in men’s ($19.99 retail) and youth ($15.99 retail) sizes. Customers who purchase the Championship Ring Tee will also receive a free 2009 Championship Ring Poster, as a gift-with- purchase. In addition to the gift-with-purchase, Modell’s will donate a portion of the proceeds from each Championship Ring Tee sold to 10 local youth baseball leagues in the tri-state area.

 To officially announce the launch of the Championship Ring Tee program, guests from select local youth baseball leagues will participate in a ceremony at Yankee Stadium, prior to the April 30, 2010 game against the Chicago White Sox, where Modell’s will present each youth league with a check for $1,000.00.

 “This is our way to celebrate the achievements of the World Champion Yankees, and pass that inspiration on to the young champions of tomorrow,” said Mitchell Modell, CEO of Modell’s Sporting Goods.  “The ring signifies what can be achieved with determination and team work.”

 “We value our long-standing relationship with Modell’s Sporting Goods, and are extremely pleased to be working with them in support of local youth baseball leagues,” said Deborah A. Tymon, New York Yankees Senior Vice President, Marketing.
