The Los Angeles Dodgers and all other teams are wearing a commemorative cap and matching accessories this weekend as part of MLB demonstrating its collective support and appreciation of military service men, women and their families for Armed Forces Day 2023.
Through the MLB Together platform, the league is celebrating service members, veterans and military families in ballparks, through charitable efforts and continued partnership activations.
Meanwhile, players, managers, coaches and all on-field personnel are going to be outfitted in an Armed Forces Day cap design for games played May 19-21, 2023. Matching camouflage Stance socks are available, and commemorative base jewels and lineup cards featuring a special Armed Forces Day logo also are being used.
For the Dodgers, that amounts to their remainder of a road series against the St. Louis Cardinals. The Dodgers also were on the road for Armed Forces Day celebration last season.

Fan purchases of the Armed Forces Day on-field collection of apparel and accessories will amount to 100% of royalties being donated to MLB Charities to support various military programs.
Donations made by MLB Charities this season are benefitting Blue Star Families, Code of Support Foundation, Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors (TAPS), The Mission Continues, USA Patriots Amputee Softball Team, and Wounded Warrior Project.

Also this season, every team is receiving $20,000 that may be used to support an organization, event or initiative in their local market to further expand on MLB’s support of current and former military members and their families.
