Special edition Mariners Desert Digital Camo gear the Mariners will be wearing on Memorial Day

On Monday, May 26, as we commemorate Memorial Day, a national day of remembrance of the men and women who have died serving in the United States Armed Forces, the Seattle Mariners are proud to join Major League Baseball in this tribute.

On Memorial Day, the Mariners host the Los Angeles Angels for a 1:10pm game. At approximately 3pm PDT, the game will be halted to observe a Moment of Remembrance. Since 1997, MLB has participated in the National Moment of Remembrance by briefly pausing all games being played on Memorial Day in a collective, unified expression of gratitude to those who served our nation and made the ultimate sacrifice.

All MLB teams playing on Monday will wear special caps and jerseys that feature the U.S. Marine Corps “Desert Digital” camouflage pattern. The caps feature the design on the crown, with team logos and “team color” on the bill. The jerseys have the camo design on the lettering on the front and back.

The limited edition caps and replica jerseys will be sold at the Safeco Field Flagship Team Store and select locations at the ballpark. The caps will sell for $34 and the jerseys for $85. All net proceeds from the sales of the two items will benefit the Welcome Back Veterans Fund, a Major League Baseball partner organization that provides grants to hospitals throughout the country that provide post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) treatment to veterans and their families.

In addition to the replica on-field cap and jersey, there will also be a special Majestic Mariners T-shirt in navy with Desert Digital camo pattern inside the lettering on the front. The cost is $25 for adult sizes and $20 for youth.
