Nationals players honored the victims of Monday's Washington Navy Yard shooting by wearing Naval Academy caps during batting practice Tuesday.

The blue-and-gold caps reportedly were provided to the Nationals directly from an Admiral.

The Nationals were preparing for a day-night double-header against the Braves on Tuesday after their Monday game was postponed in the wake of the attack. Nationals players and Washington, D.C., media are urging fans to wear blue and gold in support. Nationals Park is located just a few blocks from the scene of the mass shooting that left 12 dead (along with the alleged shooter) and eight injured.
