Blue Caps, Ribbons in Baseball Today for Father’s Day – SportsLogos.Net News

Must read


Why are all the baseball teams wearing blue logos on their caps and blue ribbons on their jerseys today?

Because it’s Father’s Day, of course!

In the world of Major League Baseball, this means we get baby blue-themed baseball caps and ribbons on the uniforms of Major League Baseball players, coaches, managers, and umpires for all games played on Sunday, June 16th.

This is the eighth season in which MLB teams are wearing the light blue caps for the annual salute to the father figures in our lives. The practice got underway back in 2016 and has continued each year through 2024 (with the exception of the pandemic-shortened season in 2020). As was the case with Mother’s Day, these caps were first paired with similarly themed jerseys, but the league stopped that after just two seasons. The ribbons we see attached to the in-game uniforms on both Father’s and Mother’s Day first appeared in 2005.

Like Mother’s Day, the cap design this year has each team wearing their primary team colour as the crown, visor, and button colour (all three are one colour regardless of what a team usually does with these elements). Powder blue is added to the team’s logo, with most making their entire logo that light blue colour, with some adding a bit of white for detailing, trim, or drop shadows. The undervisor and MLB logo on the back are also re-coloured that same baby blue colour.

Here’s every 2024 MLB Father’s Day cap design:

The teams that typically wear powder blue as a trim colour really stand out here, and you start wondering if these could be worn as part of their regular set—clubs like Tampa Bay, Toronto, Kansas City, and Miami. I could also see the Cardinals and Rangers pairing these Father’s Day caps with their powder blue alternate uniforms… but none of this would happen; it’s just too good.

Major League Baseball directs 100% of its royalties from on-field Father’s Day socks and caps to MLB Charities, a 501(c)(3) non-profit. MLB Charities will then donate those funds to Stand Up To Cancer and the Prostate Cancer Foundation to support their organization’s missions in the fight against prostate cancer.
