It’s official. The Reading Royals of the ECHL just won Christmas.
For just one night, the Royals are reaching straight into your grandmother’s closet to break out Ugly Christmas Sweater jerseys, complete with reindeer, snowflakes and Christmas trees.
“The ECHL's Reading Royals are getting in the holiday spirit, and are set to rock these Christmas sweater jerseys on Dec. 14 for their annual Teddy Bear Toss game.
No word yet on whether forward Ryan Santana will shorten his name for the festivities.”
Jersey gimmicks are no stranger to minor league affiliates, but this is one of the rare few that actually seems like a great idea. The jerseys are just a small part of a night with a much bigger purpose, gathering donations for Toys for Tots.
Definitely gives this Toledo Mud Hens Chewbacca-themed jersey a run for its money.
