4 Comments

Major League Baseball just announced that there will be a league-wide commemoration of September 11, 2001 with tributes at all Major League games tomorrow. Including:

  • On-field personnel, including players, coaches and umpires, will wear caps with a side patch of an American flag during games. All proceeds from sales of these caps will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, the Pentagon Memorial and the Flight 93 Memorial;
  • Home clubs will mark the date with pre-game ceremonies, including a moment of silence, and the “We Shall Not Forget” MLB silhouetted batter ribbon will be displayed throughout ballparks. Special lineup cards and base jewels will be used for every game;
  • The Toronto Blue Jays will wear customized caps recognizing both the United States and Canada for their game in New York against the Yankees.

Just so you know.
