MLB to license an Urn

To die for? MLB fans can take team devotion to grave

With a new venture that will put Major League Baseball team logos on urns and caskets, the league and a company that makes funeral products will find out just how many fans want to be decked out in their team colors and logos for eternity.

Starting next season, fans of the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Philadelphia Phillies, Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers will be able to have their ashes put in an urn or be lowered six feet under in a casket emblazoned with their team colors and insignia.

Major League Baseball has entered into a licensing agreement with Eternal Image, which hopes to eventually make urns and caskets for all 30 teams. The company also hopes to have similar agreements with NASCAR, the NHL and the NFL, but baseball was the first to sign on.

I'll have to talk to Dex but maybe we start selling Gaslamp Ball coffee cans to dispose of your loved ones remains. Beat the MLB at their own game.

I really liked the idea that the Padres were thinking about to fund Petco park. The idea was to have the outfield walls act as a mausoleum and die hard Padres fans could die... uh hard and leave their remains out there. Plus it would save us some tax dollars. I guess that would make it more difficult to move in the fences when Nevin and Klesko started their complaining though. It also woulda been good if they had used the monastery or cathedral theme when creating the ballpark, maybe have some head stones out in Petco Park as well.
