Bidding Begins for ‘Shirt Off Our Back’ Jerseys

PRESS RELEASE – Be a part of the East Texas Pump Jacks’ 2011 “Shirt Off Our Back” promotion even if you weren’t there!

On Thursday, August 4, the Pump Jacks wore special black jerseys for “Shirt Off Our Back” Night. Many of these unique pieces of game-worn memorabilia were given to lucky fans that evening, but a select few will be available for online bidding. Grab a piece of history before these players reach the big leagues!

Player and coaches listed below all wore their jerseys during the first game of the August 4 doubleheader, a 4-1 win against the Acadiana Cane Cutters. The jerseys available and the current bids are:

To bid on a jersey, send an e-mail to with the following information: Name, phone number, e-mail address, jersey you’re bidding for, and bid amount. You will receive a confirmation e-mail shortly after your bid is received.

Bids should be made in increments of at least $2. Bidding will conclude at 11:59 p.m. on Monday, August 8. A bid will only be accepted if the e-mail has a time stamp up to this date and time. Winners will be notified by the team the following day. Payment must be arranged within 48 hours of the conclusion of bidding or the item will be offered to the next highest bidder.

All auction proceeds benefit the Full Count Foundation, which encourages children to get involved in their communities through sports and other activities. Funds will be used locally in Kilgore and surrounding East Texas Communities.

We’d like to offer a special thank you to our sponsors for this year’s “Shirt Off Our Back” Night. Without the support of K-K Mobbs Construction, Ave Can Properties and Marco Inspection Services, we wouldn’t have been able to present such a wonderful event and make these jerseys available to our fans. Thank you!
