Wearing Pro Jersey's at local PB field

My son would like a pro jersey. will he likely be pitched a lot @#$% for wearing one? Are they being sold to collectors? He really wants one but doesnt want to just collect jerseys. Any feedback would be appreciated.

Dad

i have personally worn pro jerseys at my local feilds(local players that are pros/people i looked up to growing up) and wasnt given crap about it. you can find jersey all over the Buy/sell/trade area. you can also go to the PRO PLAYERS section of the B/S/T and pm one of them if you see a jersey youd like. or just look in the clothing or gearbag sale sections. just a heads up tho. youd be looking to spend $40-$150 for pro jerseys depening on the player and year of the jersey

He should be ok, especially if it's the jersey of a pro team near you, and he doesn't brag or pretend to be associated with the team. The only two times I've seen someone resented for wearing a pro jersey is when they wore a rival team's jersey to the home field of their local pro team, and when an entire D3? team bought Aftershock jerseys at PSP MAO to use at the event.

I could care less what people wear while they play. It should be about having fun, not what you wear. Although some people take it more seriously than others and if your sun bests someone on the field they may lash out and target the jersey (thats reaching for a scenario in which i would see it happen but not likely). None the less, I cant see anyone being a jerk just because he is wearing one. Shouldnt be any different that wearing a jersey while playing any other sport.

Pro jerseys are meant to be either kept in a frame or to be worn casually in my opinion. using them to play is kind of mehhh. Jerseys tear easily and a pro jersey is worth 100 bucks, do you really want to throw away 100 dollars in a bad dive?

Also if you compare it to other sports, do most basketball players wear NBA jerseys when they play? Not really, Football? Do you want to accidentally tear your 500 dollar Dan Marino or Jerry Rice jersey?

Just as long as he doesn't brag/lie about being on the team, he won't be bothered. Having a pro jersey would be a really cool thing to have, so I would say let him get one.

Not even this. I mean, yeah, if you wear a rival team jersey at a team's home field that the frequently practice on, you might get some, if any dirty looks. But for the most part, if anything, they might expect you to play better than everyone else but it's just a jersey! Support your favorite pro-team and wear the jersey!!

It shouldnt matter, anyone that gives him **** is either jealous or a jerk. He can wear what ever he likes, with Dads approval of course

Have you actually owned many Pro jerseys from any sport? I have and I can say for certain that they do not tear easily. In fact they are amongst the hardest things to tear. Worst that may happen is discoloration due to repeated washing or fraying from getting snagged on velcro. But tearing....no thats not happening easily unless the jersey has become very old and worn down.


To the OP, he will be fine. People were jerseys often as it is so its not going to be a big deal if his has a pro teams name on it. It just shows that he may be a fan of a certain team.

Maybe he'll catch some **** and maybe he wont. As long as his psyche isnt so fragile it will crack at the slight sarcastic remark i would worry what anyone has to say. its sports.... people talk ****... its part of the game

If i had a pro jersey i probably wouldnt play with it. IF he is going to play in it he would be better off with just getting a normal jersey.

I was thinking of biying nicky cubas game worn from chicago 2012 and wearing it at practice.. If you spend $100-150 on a jersey thats normally $40-80 why would you not play in it?

People who would be able to give **** will also be the ones to know that the jersey was from a professional and resold, so they will also not care either.

If anything, it could be a conversational/sales-beginner.
