The excitement surrounding the Macon Bacon continues to sizzle, and now fans have some new gear to help them show off their team spirit.
On Thursday, the team unveiled its new on-field caps. They complement a growing line of gear that already included shirts and other hats. They've sold about 500 items so far, according to Director of Marketing Tyler Vertin, and he says it's not just people from Macon who are placing orders.
"People love it. I mean, sold it in almost every state now. I think we only have a few left to fill in, so people around the country are really loving the Bacon gear," says Vertin.
Those sales have brought in about $25,000 according to Vertin, and they only need orders from two more states to have the whole country represented. The two holdouts are Wyoming and Vermont.
