The coronavirus may have put a wrench in the 2020 MLB season, but the Milwaukee Brewers are using their time in the dugout to help with the pandemic.

On Monday, the team released a new line of merchandise inspired by COVID-19. The new t-shirts separate the 'm' and 'b' of the ball-in-glove logo to encourage social distancing, and display the tagline, "Play by the Rules. Keep your Distance."

The tees go on sale for $25 each Monday, and net proceeds will go to local nonprofit organizations who are experiencing increased demands due to COVID-19. You can get yours on the MLB auction website, the Brewers Community Foundation website, or over the phone by calling the Brewers Team Store at 414-902-4750 Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

In addition to the $25 shirt, there is also a $15 shipping fee.

The new merchandise is part of the Brewers Community Foundation's goal to positively impact the lives of children and their families in the Greater Milwaukee area, as well as throughout Wisconsin.
