On Memorial Day, MLB will honor those who have lost their lives in service of their country. As part of the league-wide observance, all 30 teams will wear specially designed caps and jerseys.
This marks the eighth consecutive year in which MLB and New Era have partnered together to create a special cap for teams to wear. It's also the fourth consecutive year in which Majestic has designed the matching jersey. This year's edition features a new woodland camouflage design licensed by the United States Marine Corps, while the Blue Jays' uniform will feature the distinctive Canadian Forces CADPAT design. The Memorial Day uniforms are part of this year's special event looks, which were originally unveiled in April. Teams wore pink-centric uniforms on Mother’s Day and will don special uniforms for Father’s Day and the 4th of July as well.
Besides the uniforms, MLB plans to participate in the National Moment of Remembrance at ballparks on Memorial Day, and teams will conduct moments of silence and special pregame ceremonies. Additionally, MLB will donate a portion of its licensed Memorial Day uniform royalties to Welcome Back Veterans as well as the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services' "Support Our Troops Fund" on behalf of the Toronto Blue Jays.
Even though all 30 teams will be utilizing the same camouflage-influenced design elements, which ones will wear it best? Here are the 10 (in alphabetical order) we think will stand out on the diamond on Memorial Day.
