We like baseball in part because each player competing in the Major League baseball playoffs this year gets to wear an official MLB 2015 Postseason patch in the wild card, division series and league championship series.

 Historically, the World SeriesWorldSeries2015 patch has its own embroidered patch, worn by members of the American and National League teams competing for the championship in the Fall Classic.
