Last season, Yasmani Grandal and his wife Heather co-designed a t-shirt in partnership with Athletes Brand to benefit Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS). The shirt was in honor of Bailey, a friend of the Grandal family, who had been diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
The t-shirt campaign ran for two weeks and raised more than the $2,000 goal that was set. With Bailey unfortunately diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma this summer, the Grandals and Athletes Brand have again sprung into action.
The design features Grandal in a catcher’s stance and calling for a changeup. It represents throwing every possible pitch in a battle against cancer, and so too does “Fight” on the wristband portion that signifies where Los Angeles county is.
Grandal’s arm includes county lines within the state of California to represent the lymphatic system where lymphoma is.
Several Los Angeles Dodgers players wore Grandal’s shirt last season to help support his cause, and are expected to do the same this year. Grandal mentioned on his Instagram account that the first 500 to purchase the t-shirt would be entered to win an autographed bat by the team.
Additionally, the first 1,000 to purchase will be entered to win Grandal’s game-worn catching gear from Players’ Weekend.
