Cubs News: Nicholas Castellanos selling shirts designed by his son, Liam, to raise money for charity


by - Senior Writer -

CINCINNATI — When Cincinnati Reds right fielder Nicholas Castellanos was photographed arriving at the 2021 MLB All-Star Game, the former Chicago Cubs slugger was wearing a custom-made T-shirt featuring a drawing of Nicholas in his Reds uniform that his 7-year-old son, Liam, drew. The shirt was an instant hit on social media, so Nicholas and Liam chose to use the viral fame for good.

Cincinnati-based T-shirt company Cincy Shirts partnered with Nicholas and Liam to manufacture and sell the shirts, and a portion of each sale will be donated to a charity of Liam's choice. Michelle Castellanos, Nicholas' mother and Liam's grandmother, recently videoed an excited Liam reacting to discovering the T-shirts that he designed being sold at Great American Ball Park.

Using his platform for a great cause, Nicholas made the most of his first career All-Star Game appearance, converting the attention generated by his son's doodle into a charitable effort. Named the "Liam Castellanos Collection," the clothing sporting Liam's design comes in a variety of styles, not just T-shirts, but the original T-shirt worn by Nicholas can be purchased here for the price of $30.
