Get your Cliff Lee jersey

The pitcher's signing set off a scramble in the Phillies' front office.

Get your Cliff Lee jersey

Last week, as Cliff Lee was putting pen to paper on his deal with the Phillies, the team's merchandising department was ready to get on the line to Majestic, the official uniform supplier for Major League Baseball, to order shirts to sell at the stadium.

But first, it had to be determined which number Lee would wear.

His Indians number was 31, but Rodrigo López wears that for the Phils.

Sporting-goods stores got their shirts Sunday. The Phils expect the first shipment of 300 Lee #34 T-shirts ($25) and 100 "replica" jerseys ($119) to arrive today at the ballpark's Majestic Clubhouse Store, says the team's Scott Brandreth.

The "authentic" jerseys ($209) should be available tomorrow.
