Atlanta Braves Honour Memory of MLK Jr. With Jersey Patch

Written By:  •  Wednesday, April 4, 2018

The Atlanta Braves are marking the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. this afternoon by wearing a special jersey patch during their game against the Washington Nationals.

King, who was shot fifty years ago today in Memphis, was born, raised, and buried in the City of Atlanta. Shortly after his assassination King’s widow, Coretta Scott King, established the King Center in Atlanta dedicated to preserving his legacy and the work of championing nonviolent conflict resolution.

The patch shows Dr. King in blue waving to a crowd, his initials in silver on the silhouette. The patch is being worn just for today on the front of Atlanta’s uniform.
