Former White Sox pitcher giving away his team gear after trade

Wednesday December 10th, 2014

Professional athletes are given enormous amounts of team branded clothing when they join a team, seemingly enough for an entire wardrobe. 

When they switch teams they are left with a lot of stuff they don't have much use for, as fans and front office execs alike would not like them representing an opponent while walking around town.

Recently traded pitcher Chris Bassitt has found a clever way to solve the problem after being traded from the Chicago White Sox to the Oakland A's as part of the Jeff Samardzija trade.

Anyone in the market for some lightly used White Sox gear should get on Twitter as quickly as possible.
