Major League Baseball today announced plans for the league-wide commemoration of September 11, 2001 with tributes at all Major League games on Sunday, September 10th and Monday, September 11th. This remembrance is part of Baseball’s ongoing effort to honor those whose lives were lost and affected on that tragic day. In particular, home clubs will mark the date with pregame ceremonies, including a moment of silence, and the “We Shall Not Forget” MLB silhouetted batter ribbon will be displayed throughout ballparks.
On-field personnel, including players, coaches and umpires, will once again wear caps with a side patch of an American flag during games. The Toronto Blue Jays will wear customized caps recognizing both the United States and Canada. MLB proceeds from sales of these caps will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, the Pentagon Memorial and the Flight 93 Memorial. Additionally, special lineup cards and base jewels will be used for every game played.
