In the past players have worn special blue ribbons and wristbands on Father’s Day, but this is the first year MLB has gone with the uniform approach. The Father’s Day look was created in partnership with New Era and Majestic and is part of this year’s line of special event looks, which were originally unveiled in April. Teams wore pink-centric uniforms on Mother’s Day, camouflage-influenced ones on Memorial Day and will don special stars and stripes editions on the 4th of July.

MLB will donate a portion of its licensed Father's Day uniform royalties to the Prostate Cancer Foundation as well as Stand Up to Cancer. MLB's partnership with the Prostate Cancer Foundation goes back to 1996.
