Pittsburgh modifies its logo

From Mirror reports

PITTSBURGH — The Pittsburgh Pirates organization has modified the Jolly Roger logo for the 2020 season to promote healthy practices, as well as raise money for COVID-19 relief efforts, according to a press release sent out on Monday.

In this modified logo, the patented red bandana is worn over the face of the pirate as a mask to promote safe social health practices. In response to fans asking if the logo was available on official team merchandise, the Pirates unveiled it Monday on a new t-shirt design with the new logo.

A limited number of the shirts are now available in sizes S through XXL for $25 each, plus shipping and handling. They can be purchased at pirates.com/raiseitTEE. The shirt is black with a large “Safety Jolly Roger” on the front. It also includes the #Raise It hashtag.

The money from the sale of the shirts will go to organizations in the Pittsburgh area affected by the pandemic. So far, the Pirates have donated $100,000 to the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Vaccine Research, which is nationally known for its work on the COVID-19 virus. They have also helped out with the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank.
