Hickory T-shirts go on sale at Bankers Life Fieldhouse today

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Celebrating an Indiana tradition. The Pacers will sport Hickory jerseys at select games this season in honor the 30th anniversary of the film ‘Hoosiers.’

Starting Thursday, you can get your own piece of apparel to take part in the fun. T-shirts with the Hickory logo and NBA tags go on sale at the Pacers Home Court Gift Shop.

Excitement about this has been brewing since last month when the Pacers made the announcement. Thanks to a new partnership with MGM and the NBA, the Pacers will have the opportunity to wear Hickory Huskers jerseys and some home games this year. The specific games have not yet been decided.

The Pacers George Hill hit Twitter feeds with these pictures on July 21. The response was huge.

The Pacers club says the tribute will be a quote “inspiration to fans everywhere that no matter how improbable the challenge may be, amazing things can be accomplished through teamwork, determination, heart and hustle.”

The Pacers Home Court Gift Shop is open Thursday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. The store is located inside Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The T-shirts are $25.
