CINCINNATI — From dinger-slinger to a designer, one Reds slugger and his son are getting into the fashion field and discovering a whole new ball game for a good cause.
Local T-shirt company Cincy Shirts tweeted they would be selling shirts that Liam Castellanos, son of right fielder Nick, designed. A portion of each sale will be donated to a charity that has yet to be decided.

The shirt, first worn by Castellanos as he entered the All-Star game as a representative of the Cincinnati Reds, gained popularity among fans who clamored for the kid-created couture.

Fans weren't the only ones happy to find the shirts in the team shop at Great American Ball Park. Liam was pretty excited, too.
Liam sees his shirts at GABP tonight for the first time!!! He is researching local Children’s charities and will decide where the proceeds will go soon! Thank you @CincyShirts & @Reds pic.twitter.com/jpdRtxXuB7— Michelle Castellanos (@michcast05) July 17, 2021
