Rangers Jerseys Feature Camouflage on Memorial Day



    During the second game of Monday's scheduled double-header, both the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Texas Rangers will wear specially-designed caps and jerseys featuring camouflage for Memorial Day.

    For the Rangers, the jerseys will feature an authentic U.S. military digital camouflage design within the team's name on their gray road jersey.  The cap is a U.S. Marine-licensed camo cap with the team's traditional "T" logo.  The league has also made available red youth T-shirts with the camo design filling in the team's name.

    Both will look very appropriate for today's games played in the Arizona desert.

    Not just the Diamondbacks and Rangers are taking part; the gear for all MLB teams can be seen and purchased here

    MLB will donate 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sales of caps and jerseys to Welcome Back Veterans, a program they've committed $23 million toward since its inception in 2008.  The program provides grants to university hospitals to provide post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury treatments.

    Additionally, all teams playing on Memorial Day will observe a moment of silence prior to the start of the game to honor members of the military who lost their lives serving their country.  The MLB will also join the National Moment of Remembrance, an initiative the league has participated in since 1997 where all games will stop at 3 p.m. local time for a moment of silence.

    The Rangers and Diamondbacks play first at 2:40 p.m. and then again at 8:40 p.m.  They'll resume the four-game split-series on Wednesday at 7:05 p.m. in Arlington.
