Take your team to the grave
Major League Baseball and Eternal Image Inc. have reached an agreement that allows caskets and urns to be decorated with the names and logos of any of the 30 big-league teams.
Financial terms were not disclosed.
"This new line of team-specific funeral products opens a whole new market for our company - a market that is just waiting for a way to make team loyalty a 'final' statement of a great passion in their lives," Clint Mytych, chief executive officer of Eternal Image, said in a statement from the company.
The products will be available in 2007.
