The navy blue shirt with white lettering and smatterings of red splashed on it refers to the Yankees' rivalry with the Red Sox.
"The shirts being referenced are older baseball shirts that were predominantly being sold through our factory store outlets," Nike spokesman KeJuan Wilkins said Monday. "In light of the tragedy in Boston, we took immediate action last week to remove this product from distribution."
Fanatics, one of the largest online sports retailers, independently decided to halt sales of the shirt as well.
