The Cleveland Indians, first baseman Mike Napoli, fan Nate Crowe and T-shirt company 108 Stitches donated a combined $120,000 in proceeds from sales of “Party at Napoli’s” T-shirts to Cleveland Clinic Children’s and VeloSano in a pregame ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
The shirts grew in popularity after Crowe, a Tribe Season Ticket Holder, brought a “Party at Napoli’s” sign to an early season game. The Indians worked with 108 Stitches, Napoli and Crowe to design the shirts, and they’ve been flying off the shelves since – over 9,000 shirts have been sold at the Progressive Field Team Shop and on www.108Stitches.com.Napoli matched a portion of proceeds from T-shirt sales, and Crowe also made a donation, in addition to the Tribe and 108 Stitches’ donations.
Later in the evening, the Tribe hosted an actual Party at Napoli’s at The Corner at Progressive Field, raising more money for the cause.
