“Do what you do, but do it from home,” has been our call to action and the Pirates provide another fun example with a Shirt Toss online.
The Pirates just ask fans to reply to the tweet for a chance at a team branded shirt (one which the likely had for games that are currently on hold.) The results are tremendous.
The added fun was the interactions found in the replies. For example, one fan replied “I just graduated!” and the team responds with a note of congrats along with the notice the grad has a shirt coming.
