CWS 2019: Metro firm adds finishing touch to team jerseys

OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) -- The handiwork of an Omaha company will be in the national spotlight during the CWS.

The jerseys of all eight teams are in the workshop of Lawlor's Custom Sportswear - all being prepared for the big games. Employees are embroidering a very important little patch on each jersey: the College World Series logo.

Each team gets three sets of jerseys so that's about 1,000 in all.

Jamie Carlson, with Lawlor’s, said, “”I mean it required a lot of planning ahead of time for about a month or so. I don't want to watch a game and see a patch falling off anyone's shoulder.”

This is the third year that Lawlor's has been responsible for applying the CWS patch to team jerseys.
