Major League Baseball players — including the Dodgers — will honor America’s military troops over the Memorial Day holiday weekend by wearing camo-style uniforms during their games.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago Cubs will begin wearing their Memorial Day uniforms for three consecutive games Saturday at Dodger Stadium.

The jerseys will have the team and player names and numbers in woodland camouflage. The caps will be camouflage with five stars representing the branches of the military.

All proceeds from the sale of Memorial Day apparel will benefit MLB Charities and used to support programs for military veterans and their families.

This is the fifth consecutive year MLB teams have worn special jerseys for Memorial Day and ninth year they have worn special caps. This is the first time the special uniforms have been worn before Memorial Day.
