Bo Jackson played for the Memphis Chicks, a Kansas City Royals minor league affiliate in 1986. While there, he wore a button-front shirt during play. In recent years, a Memphis Chicks Bo Jackson jersey has been made available for purchase. Since people are naturally turned off by button-front or button-up baseball "jerseys", the Bo Jackson Memphis Chicks jersey is the more popular and socially acceptable v-neck pullover style.

The University of Miami Hurricanes baseball team's uniforms include v-neck pullover jerseys. It's great to see baseball programs phasing out, if not eliminating button-up nonsense altogether! Coral Gables, Florida, like the rest of the world, is pullover jersey country!
The Florida Gulf Coast University Eagles baseball team's uniforms include v-neck pullover baseball jerseys. The people in the Southeast part of the United States, just like the rest of the world, prefer pullover jerseys over anything else in the world!

In 2014, the Miami Marlins, in the midst of World Cup fever, gave away Miami Marlins pullover soccer jerseys. Funny thing is, they are better than anything the Florida/Miami Marlins have ever worn. The franchise, which began in 1993, have never worn real baseball jerseys in a game anyway, the August 25-27, 2017 Players Weekend pullover jerseys notwithstanding.
