The Black Keys Selling Shirts to Benefit Ohio Little League Team
Ohio natives The Black Keys are selling t-shirts on their website to raise funds for the West Akron Baseball League, with all funds from the shirts going to the league. The band recently sponsored their childhood little league baseball team in 2013. The league plans to use the funds for a variety of projects, including the purchase of equipment and uniforms for the players as well as improving the quality of the playing fields and dugouts.
“Dan [Auerbach] and I played little league when we were kids before we got into music, it was a really positive hobby that kept us from sitting around watching TV,” drummer Patrick Carney told MTV. “We are proud to be sponsoring W.A.B.L to hopefully offset some of the leagues expenses and get more kids outside having fun.”
The shirts were designed by Carney’s brother Michael and are available for order on The Black Keys’ website.
