Green camo caps worn in MLB this weekend – SportsLogos.Net News

Why are all the baseball teams wearing camo this weekend?

Each year during the third weekend in May, Major League Baseball celebrates Armed Forces Day by having each of its 30 clubs wear camo-patterned caps, socks, sleeves and catcher’s gear during matches played on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Patterns vary slightly from season to season and this year the caps feature a custom green camo pattern on the crowns, visors and buttons. For the 29 US-based teams, each logo is presented in olive green and gold with a US flag design embedded into it; the Canadian-based Toronto Blue Jays naturally don’t include this feature, opting instead for their usual (still recolored) logo.

The left side features the New Era logo in gold, the back features the MLB logo in a gold/black/gold colourway, and the underside of the visor is solid black. On the right side of each cap is a military-style badge with six stars representing the six branches of the military and the name of the team’s location placed to the right (the Los Angeles Angels bar reads “ANGELS”) . The Blue Jays cap replaces the five stars with four maple leaves.

Here is an overview of the Armed Forces Day 2022 cap designs for all 30 teams:

Team jerseys will remain the usual design for each club, this camo theme is reserved for caps, socks and other accessories.

As has been the case for the past three years, teams will wear camouflage on Armed Forces Day rather than Memorial Day. Beginning with the 2019 season, the league chose to reserve Memorial Day for the solemn remembrance of veterans who are no longer with us, by simply adding a poppy patch to all jerseys of teams playing on Memorial Day Monday.
