T-Shirt Sparks MLB Playoffs Controversy

When sports postseasons come around, merchandise that the leagues and individual teams sell tends to become front and center. This week is no exception, as the Major League Baseball playoffs have just kicked off. Well, count the good people of Arlington, TX, among the not-so-happy crowd when it comes to a local T-shirt.

When the Texas Rangers clinched the AL West with a win over the Los Angeles Angels last weekend, they were treated to MLB-designed shirts and sweatshirts that had a “The West Is Ours” logo prominently displayed over a backdrop of the Dallas skyline. Pretty cool, right? Not so fast. The Rangers play in Arlington, not Dallas, and this has caused quite the stir among the fan base.
