Going camo — on the field
The Rays sported camo gear for fun on the flight to Baltimore, but they will wear it for real Monday, as MLB has teams in caps and jerseys trimmed with USMC trademarked Digital Camo for Memorial Day. The items are already for sale on mlb.com, with all net proceeds to the Welcome Back Veterans group.
