Memorial Day 2018: MLB Wearing Green and Camo This Weekend

Written By:  •  Saturday, May 26, 2018

Starting Saturday and running right through to Monday, it’s Major League Baseball’s annual three-day uniform celebration of Memorial Day.

It’s an all-new look for the Memorial Day caps this year (see last year’s designs here), the crowns feature a black camouflage pattern, the bills are that familiar military-shade of olive green and the cap logos have been re-coloured to match.

Each of the twenty-nine U.S.-based teams will feature five stars on the side of their cap and jersey to represent the five branches of the military; the Toronto Blue Jays will instead have four maple leaves on the side of their cap for the four branches of Canada’s military.

A look at the cap designs:

As for the jersey, it’s the same template we saw on Memorial Day weekend last year, but we are seeing some teams choosing a different jersey to wear with this style — the Royals and D-backs for example opting for their alternate uniforms instead of the usual home or road.

A closer look at the jersey design followed by a league-wide look at the full cap/jersey combo:

Some teams have two jerseys because Memorial Day weekend rolls into the Monday, these teams will be starting a new road trip or a homestand on the holiday Monday therefore require a second white or grey jersey.

Here’s the new sock design courtesy Stance:

All of MLB’s proceeds from the sale of Memorial Day merchandise will go to support programs for service men and women, veterans, and military families.
