Singer-Songwriter-Sports Nut Darius Rucker Reveals New MLB And NCAA Fan Gear
You already know Darius Rucker as an incredibly talented singer and songwriter. He’s also a huge sports fan, most notably of the Miami Dolphins (I’m such a baby ’cause the Dolphins make me cry…) and his beloved South Carolina Gamecocks. Throughout his career, Rucker has performed solo and with Hootie & the Blowfish at countless sporting events. So it only stands to reason that he would eventually get into the fan apparel business.
According to Billboard, Darius Rucker has been working with Fanatics, a company that gets a lot of my money, and BCL Entertainment to share his love of sports. It started with NFL attire, including Carolina Panthers gear. Now in its third year, the collaboration has added Major League Baseball and select NCAA team merchandise. “To do it for a third year and expanding into other things besides the NFL — college and baseball and all that stuff — I love it,” Rucker told Billboard.
As Major League Baseball gets closer to its postseason and football is just getting started, you can show off your favorite MLB, NFL, and NCAA teams with the Darius Rucker-designed t-shirts, jerseys, flannels, hoodies, vests, shorts, and more all season long. The collection includes plenty of teams other than the singer’s favorites. That’s Darius below sporting one of his New York Mets bowling shirts, even though he’s a lifelong Cincinnati Reds fan. You can see everything in his collection on the Fanatics website.
