Major League Baseball today announced a series of initiatives for Memorial Day, including the return of poppy patches, emblazoned with the words “Lest we forget,” to be worn by all uniformed personnel.
MLB used camouflage and/or olive-accented uniforms on Memorial Day for many years. But in 2019, they switched the camo/olive gear to the relatively obscure holiday Armed Forces Day (the third Saturday in May) and started using the poppy patches for Memorial Day. You can see how they looked in a few of last year’s games here, here, and here.
As has been the case since 2019, the poppy-patched jerseys will not be available for retail sale.
Twenty-two of the 30 MLB teams are scheduled to play on Memorial Day.
(My thanks to Phil for letting me know about the MLB announcement.)
