If your Mother’s Day activities this Sunday include taking in a MLB game in person or watching one on TV expect to see a lot of pink. In celebration of Mother’s Day and to help bring awareness to breast cancer, all 30 major league teams will be wearing specially designed pink-centric uniforms on Sunday.
In years past, players wore pink wrist bands and donned pink shoes, with or without the matching pink laces, while swinging pink bats on Mother’s Day and for breast cancer awareness. This year, every player will be adorned in pink, from head to toe. The Mother Day’s uniforms are the first of a series of special event looks that were created by MLB, working in conjunction with Majestic and New Era, which were originally unveiled in April. Besides Mother’s Day, teams will wear specially designed duds for Father’s Day, Memorial Day and the 4th of July as well.
The good news is this is not being done just to make an atypical fashion statement, especially where the pink unis are concerned. MLB will donate a portion of its licensed uniform royalties to specific charitable initiatives that are associated with each of these holidays. For Mother’s Day the charity is Susan G. Komen, a non-profit organization dedicated to saving lives and ending breast cancer forever.
So while baseball fans certainly aren’t used to seeing their favorite player or team wearing pink on the diamond, which Mother’s Day uniforms stand out from the rest? Here are the 10 Mother’s Day uniforms that caught our eye (in alphabetical order).
