Bruce Horovitz of USA TODAY reports that underwear company Jockey handed out 2,000 commemorative pairs of underwear, labeled “Mad Bum” on the backside, to Giants fans at the World Series parade earlier today. The underwear is not for sale, so those that were lucky enough to get a pair now have a piece of history.
Dustin Cohn, CMO of Jockey International, said, “We wanted to provide fans with a fun, eye-catching keepsake in support of Madison’s postseason greatness.” He added, “Madison Bumgarner is one of the all-time postseason greats with a name that’s a perfect fit for the Jockey brand. We’re proud he wears Jockey and congratulate him on a third championship.”
Bumgarner, 25, won World Series MVP honors earning two wins and a save with a 0.43 ERA and a 17/1 K/BB ratio in 21 innings against the Royals. During the post-season overall, Bumgarner went 4-1 with a 1.03 ERA and a 45/6 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings.
