49res brass shows off cool shirts honoring Dwight Clark’s famed catch

Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch wore the T-shirts fans will receive at the “Dwight Clark Day” celebration and Niner Nation seemingly delighted in the design.

The 49ers posted an Instagram picture Friday featuring their head coach and general manager, respectively, wearing shirts set to be distributed Sunday at festivities for Clark, the Niners legend battling ALS. It’s pretty cool to see a golden outline of Clark mid-flight for “The Catch” between the former tight end’s numbers…

“The Catch” quarterback Joe Montana is set to introduce a highlight video and say a few words at halftime of Sunday’s game (fittingly) against the Dallas Cowboys. It is possible Clark himself will make some remarks from a suite in Levi’s Stadium, the 49ers told Bay Area News Group.

“I think there’s going to be a lot of love,” former 49ers lineman Randy Cross told my colleague Daniel Brown. “It just kind of hits extra hard. There is no downside to Dwight Clark. There’s not a ‘Yeah, but … ‘ in there. He’s just a great guy and an unbelievable person.”

Clark, Cross Montana and others are in town for a reunion of the 1981 team that won the Super Bowl — and, presumably, for “Dwight Clark Day” at which fans will receive a sweet shirt.

Here’s how to help the cause of fighting ALS, as shown by former teammate Roger Craig.

Dallas will have star running back Ezekiel Elliott back after a federal judge granted him a temporary restraining order to halt his NFL-mandated six-game suspension for an off-season domestic violence charge. Stopping Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott would seem to be a tall order for the 49ers defense.
