On Staten Island, gear made for the temporary rebranding of the Staten Island Yankees this summer is selling fast.
The first shipment of the apparel with the new Staten Island Pizza Rats logo started to arrive at the Ball Park on Tuesday.
The team's President Will Smith said that the move has helped them sell 500 % more merchandise online, in just two days, than they did in all of 2017.
The team went all out for fans who bought the first batch of hats and other apparel with the new logo.
Many of the pieces actually arrive in large pizza boxes that come with packets of parmesan cheese and crushed pepper.
On Monday the team announces that they would rebrand as the Staten Island PIzza Rats for 5 Saturday home games this summer with the first on June 23rd.
The news came about 2 years after the team asked the public to help them pick a new team name and the Staten Island Pizza Rats won the contest.
Fans can still purchase Staten Island Pizza Rats gear at www.pizzaratsbaseball.com.
