Gone too soon is a vast understatement. This Friday, May 28th will mark the 5 year anniversary of Harambe's untimely and unnecessary death. Without getting into a pissing match over gorilla vs. kid, I'll just say this...good on the Fredericksburg Nationals. They're doing right by our long lost friend.
Tonight our players are wearing custom Harambe jerseys as our ultimate tribute to our sweet prince pic.twitter.com/0q3CKiy1PI— Fredericksburg Nationals (@FXBGNats) May 22, 2021
The game-worn jerseys are also up for auction with 100% of the proceeds going to ProtectGorillas. So not only are the jerseys honoring our fallen comrade, but they are also helping to make sure gorillas are protected in Central Africa. Oh yeah, did we mention these jerseys look fly as hell?
If you're looking to snag one of these bad boys, the auction link is below.
Since I'm getting emotional just writing this piece I'll leave you with some kind words from the Nationals' twitter account.
All love to our sweet prince ?? https://t.co/dcGOVoqOfF— Fredericksburg Nationals (@FXBGNats) May 25, 2021
Goodnight, sweet prince.
