Coronavirus Protective Masks to Be Made From Phillies Uniform Material

While baseball is on hiatus, Fanatics is using material from Phillies jerseys to help those that need masks, right here in the Philly area!

While the shortage of N95 masks is well know, these masks will definitely help people out.

The New York Times reports:

The masks are made from the same bolts of polyester mesh fabric used to make big-league uniforms, and the first prototypes bear the distinctive pinstripes of the Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies.

“We’ve got tremendous amounts of fabric, which is exactly what the players wear,” said Michael Rubin, the founder and executive chairman of Fanatics. “We’re just taking it and making the masks and gowns that can be used by the people who are working to save lives every day.”
