MLB to incorporate pink on jerseys for Mother's Day

NEW YORK (AP) Major League Baseball teams will wear specially designed jerseys for Mother's Day and Father's Day this season.

Team scripts and logos will incorporate pink for Mother's Day on May 8 and light blue for Father's Day on June 19. The commissioner's office said Wednesday that there also will be special caps, with gray crowns and brims.

Clubs also will wear camouflage design scripts for Memorial Day on May 30 and caps with red, white and blue on the Fourth of July, along with special jerseys. For Toronto, Memorial Day jerseys will feature a Canadian Forces color scheme and July 4 caps will have a Maple Leaf design.

MLB will donate its licensed uniform royalties to Susan G. Komen (Mother's Day), the Prostate Cancer Foundation (Father's Day), Stand Up to Cancer (Mother's Day and Father's Day), Welcome Back Veterans (Memorial Day and Independence Day) and the Canadian Forces Morale and Welfare Services' ''Support Our Troops Fund'' (Memorial Day).

Players in the All-Star Game at San Diego on July 12 will wear caps containing logos outlined in gold. For the All-Star workout day on July 11, players will wear brown-and-mustard-colored jerseys in the style used by the Padres from 1976-79.
