MajesticIn a move that is being touted as the first of its kind, Majestic Athletic (the official uniform of the Reds), the Cincinnati Reds and MLB.com are teaming up to introduce MLB’s first fan designed tee shirt contest.

Fans of the Reds will be able to submit ideas, and drawings online through the Reds’ site on MLB.com. by July 22nd. According to Majestic, “Later this summer, Reds’ fans will vote on their favorite design to become the ‘Official Reds T-Shirt of the Fan’. The winning artist will see their work come alive, be honored on-field at a Reds game and other prizes.”

“As the Reds continue their playoff run, we at Majestic though the best way for fans to commemorative this special season is through their own creativity,” said Jim Pisani, Majestic Athletic President.

“We are excited to extend this opportunity to our fans, in hopes of encouraging them to express their memories and passion for the Reds brand, through their own personal design which will be showcased on a t-shirt that fans alike can purchase,“ said Lauren Werner, Cincinnati Reds Senior Director of Business Development.

If you’re a fan of another club besides the Reds, according to Majestic, while not releasing which they will be, the promotion will eventually be done with three other teams.

Red Sox JetBlue 

No, there wasn’t a player signing at Boston’s Logan International Airport, but there was a uniform unveiling, of sorts.

Red Sox sponsorship partner JetBlue unveiled an Airbus A320 in Red Sox colors today marking the first time a commercial airliner has worn an MLB “uniform”. The unveiling was done with JetBlue’s Senior VP of Marketing and Commercial Strategy Marty St. George, Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino, Red Sox Exec VP/COO Sam Kennedy, Manager Bobby Valentine, Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and a “cast of hundreds” that included  JetBlue crewmembers and Wally the Green Monster.

The jet’s design was inspired by the Red Sox road unis – gray with blue wing tips, and a gray tail featuring the dangling red socks. Also included in the paint scheme is the logo for Fenway’s 100th Anniversary.

The jet begins service today flying to, where else, Ft. Myers, FL where the Red Sox host Spring Training at the new JetBlue Park at Fenway South. Customers on the flight were greeted with hats and jerseys on their seats for the maiden flight.

The jet has the number 605, which according to sources with JetBlue has no particular significance. No word as to whether “Number 605” will make the 40 man roster for Spring Training.

Phoenix – The phase heard most often from those arriving to attend the MLB All-Star Game festivities has been:, “The 2011 MLB All-Star Game… But, it’s a dry heat.” That may be, but if the heat was a topic of discussion, it hasn’t stopped fans from turning out in large numbers for the FanFest being held at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Tens of thousands of fans poured through the doors, filtered into the lower regions of the Convention Center, and entered what can best be described as “Baseball nirvana.”

Passing through the event, it can often be a case of option overload… Where to start? The Baseball Hall of Fame Traveling Museum?... Negro Leagues display?.... Hunt Auctions and the memorabilia? Or, do I take in Rawlings, MLB Network, MLB Network Radio, and more?

But, along the way, there’s material displayed that, if not paying close attention, you might miss.

Such is the case for these images below.

This insane custom chopper designed by Bourget’s Bike Works was done for New Era Caps and is called the MLB – Stars and Stripes. The bike is being displayed around the country at key events and will donated to MLB who will auction it off with proceeds going to the “Welcome Back Veterans” program.

Specs:

Bike Design:

Bourget’s Python Super Stretch

47 degree front fork rake

Pearl white paint

Billet machined caps, bats, and baseballs. Foot pegs, hand grips, mirrors, air cleaner, lights, wheel covers, belt guard

The seat is something else… Designed to look like a baseball glove.

Logos? The red, white, and blue designs used on caps for Memorial Day and 4th of July.

Check it out.

Maury Brown will be reporting from the MLB All-Star Game festivities in Phoenix from Sat. to Tues

8:30pm ET - As of this publication, Derek Jeter has doubled and is just two hits away from 3,000 hits, a feat done by only 27 other players prior.

As it’s the Yankees. Because it’s, well… Derek Jeter. The countdown has garnered a lot of interest, including Major League Baseball and the Yankees. As this image shows, special balls are being used to track history.

We don’t know how long they will last (at least the ones that have more than a passing resemblance to the Dodgers logo), but if nothing else, it’s taking a bad moment for the Dodger faithful, a good play on words, and turning it into a great piece of merchandise.

Yes, it took all of one day for Frankrupt.com to launch, a thumbing of the nose at Frank McCourt and the Dodgers bankruptcy. There’s a sneaking suspicion that more than a few will be purchasing these in Los Angeles.

Today, during a press conference at AT&T Park, Giants players Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum and Cody Ross unveiled the Players Choice Signature Series  jerseys and T-shirts they designed exclusively for their fans, with each product expressing their unique personalities and attitudes. Pablo Sandoval also designed Signature Series products, but was unable to attend the unveiling.

The Giants Players Choice Signature Series jerseys and T-shirts will go on sale today at AT&T Park, online at MLB.com and at San Francisco-area Giants Clubhouse stores, Fanzz and Hat World locations.

The players produced the products in a two-month design and manufacturing process with the Major League Baseball Players Association and its apparel licensee, VF/Majestic, beginning with one-on-one design sessions during spring training. See the Red Sox designed items for the 2011 Signature Series collection.

The Signature Series product-line made its debut in 2009, when New York Mets players designed items for sale in the MLBPA’s Players Choice Clubhouse retail store located at Citi Field.

Last year, the Yankees, Mets, Phillies, and Twins players released products

Select the images below of the designs to see in high-res
