Repairing a T-shirt

I got a shirt from a sporting event. It is 100% cotton. There is a pull in the front from the drier. It is very dear to my son. Can this be repaired?

That is a very bad pull, and I don't think it can be fixed, sorry! Knit fabrics like lightweight jersey aren't like thicker knits that can be fixed by gently working the pull from the front to the inside. Pulls like this one on a tee/rugby/polo-shirt are like ladders (runs) in stockings - simply can't be fixed. Covered up - yes; fixed - no.

You might be able to cover it with an embroidered patch carefully (to avoid more pulls) appliqued over it - you might be able to find a needlewoman who can use a matching elasticated thread to work something in that will either hide the pull or at least make it less noticeable.
