In today’s rather brief ticker, we’ve got a World Cup NOB, a new Triple-A club cap, and an update on New York’s efforts to remove Native American mascots from public schools.
- The Oklahoma City Dodgers, Triple-A affiliates of the — ahem — Dodgers, have unveiled a new alternate cap, partially inspired by Oklahoma’s first state flag. It is “the first new on-field hat or jersey added to OKC’s regular collection since becoming a Dodgers affiliate in 2015,” says Alex Freedman.

- Also from Wade, all Canucks players wore Roberto Luongo, Henrik Sedin or Daniel Sedin jerseys during warmups on Thursday night, honoring the three Canucks legends who were inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame earlier this week.
- England & Uruguay: Liverpool’s Uruguayan striker Darwin Núñez wears the NOB “Darwin” for his club but “D. Núñez” for his country.
- New York’s state government is telling the remaining public school districts that still have Native American mascots to drop them, or else. School districts risk not only losing state funding, but having their superintendents and school board members removed if they refuse to comply.
