Just in time for the kick-off of baseball season next month, the folks at FANTOONS have released a new Rush, officially-licensed, baseball-themed t-shirt. The shirt plays off of Geddy Lee's well-known baseball obsession, showing a caricature of the MLB logo with a silhouette of Geddy Lee holding a bass in lieu of a bat and the Major League Baseball caption replaced with Major Lee Bassball as seen here. The t-shirt is now available for purchase at this location for just $25. You can check out the t-shirt along with a bunch of other cool, officially-licensed Rush FANTOONS merchandise at their Etsy store here. For those of you who don't know, FANTOONS is an ongoing comic strip based on Rush and some other great bands that was created by David Calcano back in 2012. If you follow rushisaband on Facebook and/or Twitter, you've likely run across some of the amazing Rush-themed comic art from FANTOONS that I've shared over the last few years. You can check out some samples of their work on Facebook and at back in 2015 they released a 170-page Rush Toons book filled with comics and artwork featuring our favorite band. I had the honor of writing the book's foreword and highly recommend it; it's a definite must have for any Rush fan.
