The Chicago Cubs will wear a special Memorial Day commemorative cap when they take the field against the San Diego Padres today much like the rest of the Major Leagues who honor the fallen servicemen and women on this national holiday.
No word on if the Cubs plan on making these caps available for purchase via their official website at this time, but the early response via social media is that they would be a hot item if they were on sale.
How do you feel about the caps and the general notion that professional and collegiate athletes wear camo on their uniforms to honor the military either for Memorial Day, Independence Day, Flag Day or Veterans Day? Should sports leave the camo to the military or is this a fitting gesture?

You can watch the Cubs and their commemorative caps at 3:05 p.m. central time from San Francisco’s AT&T Park where Jeff Samardzija is still in search of his first victory of the season despite a scant 1.46 earned-run average.
The Cubs are 18-30 on the season and have the fewest amount of wins in baseball while the Giants are the complete opposite as they are in first place in the National League West with a 32-18 record and lead the league in wins. The Giants send Yusmeiro Petit to the mound against Samardzija in what would figure to be a low scoring affair.
