How America's Pastime is Honoring America's Military

San Diego Padres in Camo Uniforms

Baseball is known as America's Pastime, so it comes as no surprise to see the MLB honor the military during the 4th of JulyAs part of a long standing tradition, Baseball has been honoring the military in many different ways. 

One of the ways they have been doing this is by incorporating patriotic themes into their uniforms, like the San Diego Padres Camo Uniforms and the MLB's Stars & Stripes Cap Collection.  For the fifth year in a row the MLB will be helping raise money and awareness to the Welcome Back Veterans Program, a program that helps returning veterans and their families suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

What makes this year more interesting is that instead of using the usual Red, White and Blue Colors, this year they have incorporated Digital Camouflage logos on the front of  Caps. The Stars & Stripes Cap collections from New Era have been worn by Major League Baseball teams during Memorial Day and again will be worn on Independence Day Weekend.   
Did you know that George Steinbrenner was actually born on the 4th of July

I think it is really nice to see sports get behind such causes like this, no matter what people say about the overall look of them. The fact remains Camo is Cool and even cooler when it is used to support a great cause like this one. So what are your thoughts on the hats?
