CLEVELAND — When the Cleveland Indians take the field for the 2021 Little League Classic on Sunday, they'll certainly look the part.
On Monday, Nike unveiled the jerseys that the Indians and their opponent, the Los Angeles Angels will be wearing when they face off at Muncy Bank Ballpark at Historic Bowman Field in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. As one might imagine, both teams' pullover-style tops take on a little league-inspired twist, featuring regions --"Great Lakes" for the Indians and "West" for the Angels -- instead of cities across the jersey's chest.
Both teams will also wear patches on their caps to commemorate the event.
"The MLB Cleveland Baseball team 2021 Little League Classic Jersey helps deliver a comfortable fit with its polyester material," the jersey's listing on Nike.com reads. "It features bold details to add authenticity to your look as your team heads to Williamsport for one of MLB's most unique annual traditions."
Retailing at $135, both teams' jerseys are available for purchase on Nike.com, with Jose Ramirez, Shane Bieber and a plain version available in the Indians' jersey and Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani, Anthony Rendon and a plain version available in the Angels' jersey.
Sunday's matchup between the Indians and Angels will air nationally on ESPN following a full slate of coverage of Little League World Series Games. First played in 2017, MLB's Little League Classic is aimed at celebrating the Little League World Series and getting children more interested in baseball at a younger age, with Major League players from both teams attending games throughout the day.
