Memphis Redbirds wearing patient-designed jerseys for charity

The Memphis Redbirds will be wearing jerseys designed by patients of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during their game on Saturday, August 25. The special event at AutoZone Park will honor the hospital’s 50th anniversary.

The Redbirds first wore their special jerseys during their visit to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital on Thursday, August 23. They signed autographs, interacted with the children and handed out Redbirds gifts.

The St. Jude jerseys are white and feature navy blue numbers and stripes down the sides with a child-inspired look using cartoon numerals. The front features a baseball designed by a St. Jude patient, while the back includes an image drawn by another patient with the script “St. Jude Gives Hope”. The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital logo is displayed on the sleeve.

Most importantly, all proceeds of the silent and live auctions of these jerseys will be donated to St. Jude in support of their mission to find cures and save children.

    If Joey Votto was back in action, then Browning might have stayed. Since most of the Reds hitters swing right, we called up Dickson instead.
