It was part of a Chicago White Sox “Pink Out” promotion for breast cancer awareness, the event was held jointly between the White Sox and the Chicago chapter of the Susan G. Komen Foundation — a charity in support of breast cancer education.

As far as we can tell, is the first time in the modern Major League era, that a team has worn a pink cap in a MLB game.

In addition to the White Sox wearing pink, this afternoon, as a part of Mother’s Day, all Major League clubs will wear pink ribbon patches on their jerseys.
