Stores that were stocked with items planned to have plenty throughout the World Series run, even if they run out early.

"No, we won't run out. We'll be getting goods throughout the day and continuing through the World Series," Paul Usher, the General Manager of Modell's in South Philadelphia, told Action News.

"I need the official hat," Ryan Tygh told Action News shortly after 5 a.m. "I need to be the envy of everyone when I walk into work."

In Bellmawr, New Jersey, the printing machines ran all night at Family Screen. Workers made 10,000 shirts overnight then took a break. They'll be back on the job later today for when the first batch runs out.

"This is a great part of our year," Bob Armstrong of Family Screen told Action News. "We waited for years to have it the first time. Now we're having it again. It's really, really exciting and it helps the business world for us, and for everybody around the area."
