The Losing Team's World Series Gear Is Usually Donated; Not This Year
MLB says it's changing its strategy so inaccurate merchandise doesn't show up on eBay.By Carter Woodiel | November 5, 2016
The Cleveland Indians are World Series champions — at least according to a whole lot of T-shirts. And Major League Baseball is changing its strategy on how to get rid of them.
