I read the other day that this was initially going to just be a Miami Marlins thing since Stoneman Douglas is right in their backyard. I also read that because of the MLB’s tone deaf rules the players would only be allowed to wear the hats in pre-game, but it looks like they’ve reversed course in a big way.
Now ALL 30 MLB teams will be wearing the high school’s hat with the option to wear it in-game. Thats awesome. Its small condolences to the kids who had to go through hell this week, but its a great way to show support and solidarity with the community.
If you remember both New York teams donned first responder caps in the wake of 9/11 as a way to show support. Its a small gesture, but sometimes those can go pretty far.
