Paying tribute to the nation’s heroes would seem to be a perfect fit for the nation’s pastime. Not so fast, says Major League Baseball.
The Washington Nationals had planned to honor the Navy SEALs who died in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan by wearing special tribute hats on the field, but that plan didn’t pass muster with league officials.
“We reserve hats for national tributes, where every club is wearing them on the same day,” league spokesman Pat Courtney told the Washington Post. “But we’re happy to work with clubs on alternatives.”
