MYRTLE BEACH, SC - A week after HBO's 'Eastbound & Down' returned to Pelicans Ballpark to finish shooting the show's third season, the Myrtle Beach Pelicans now have a full stock of show gear at the Pelicans Pro Shop and online at MyrtleBeachPelicans.com.
With New Era 59/50 on-field style, show inspired hats already in stock, the Pro Shop has added Carolina blue Kenny Powers' Myrtle Beach Mermen t-shirt jerseys and white 'Eastbound & Down' inscribed t-shirt jerseys. Kenny Powers bobbleheads and pint glasses will become available in the coming weeks. Everything is officially licensed merchandise of the show.
The Mermen t-shirt, made to reflect Powers' new team, is screen printed with a script Myrtle Beach Mermen logo on the front and "Powers 55" screen printed in block lettering on the back. The white t-shirt has the 'Eastbound & Down' logo screen printed on the front and "Powers 55" screen printed on the back. Both are 100% cotton.
The hat designs feature a light blue and white script 'MB' logo on a navy blue fitted body. There is also a light blue New Era logo over the left ear. Hat sizes range from six and 5/8 inches to eight inches.
"There's been a lot of energy around 'Eastbound & Down' and the show's presence at the ballpark," said Pelicans Merchandise Manager Dan Bailey. "We had a great opportunity to witness the show's filming at the park and adding to our options in the Pro Shop just helps fans share in that excitement."
The third season of 'Eastbound & Down' was filmed, in part, at Pelicans Ballpark both last summer and in February.
