Aggie Baseball to Honor George H.W. Bush With Patch, On-Deck Circle

We learned last fall that all of Texas A&M's athletic teams would wear a patch or other decals to honor former President George H.W. Bush.

Bush, who died Nov. 30, 2018, at the age of 94, was a frequent visitor to Aggie sporting events and his presidential library, as well as his final resting place, is located on the Texas A&M campus.

The tribute patch was first be worn by the men's and women's basketball teams during their games. The patch, approved by the family, is based on the shield from the official President Bush 41 logo.

It will be in the school's colors of maroon and white.

The football team then wore the design as a helmet decal when it faced North Carolina State in the Gator Bowl on Dec. 31.

Next up, the Aggie baseball team will wear the patch and will also adorn their on-deck circle with the 41 emblem

Aggie baseball tweeted a few photos of their patch and on-deck circle Tuesday along with the message "#Honoring41 On our chest, and on the field, we remember. #GigEm"

Various other Texas A&M's teams will wear the uniform patch for the remainder of the school year.
