On the back inside tail is the "Rawlings" manufacturer's size 44 tag. To its right is the "L" tag representing "long" and to the right of that is the wash instructions tag. Across the front is “PITTSBURGH” in red on white tackle twill. Below and on back is the player number “13” in the same tackle twill. The nameplate on back has been removed. In the back waistband of the shorts is the "Rawlings" manufacturer's size 34 tag. To its right is wash instructions tag.
