Jim Leyland is never one without his cigarettes, well that was until Wayne County banned smoking indoors, which included his office and the Detroit Tiger’s clubhouse. A local bar in Detroit honored the grizzly-voiced manager and his passion for cancer sticks with this awesome T-shirt
The Dirty Trick began selling this fascinating T just yesterday for 22 bucks a pop, but the Tigers have informed him that this is going to be a problem and he is expecting a cease-and-desist letter sometime this week. The biggest problem is obviously the Old English D, the coolest hat logo in all of baseball.
Whereas the idea is a really one to honor Leyland and support the team, it is obvious that the Tigers don’t want anyone to profit off the logo that identifies their team without getting a cut. The owner is talking about altering it, but I have a hard time believing he has much ground to stand on, outside of losing the D all-together.
