A Weekend of Camo
May 20, 2013 1 Comment
This past Saturday was Armed Forces Day, and many teams brought out camo to honor those brave men and women. As you can see, the White Sox wore their camo hat, and surprised everyone by adding matching camo names and numbers. In the same game, the Angels did the same thing. The Pirates wore full camo jerseys on Friday and Saturday, and handed out a AJ Burnett bobblehead wearing the camo jerseys on Saturday.
