MLB's Controversial Decision To Stop Nats From Wearing Military Tribute Hats
The Washington Nationals, who play their home games just down the street from the Pentagon and the U.S. Capitol, wanted to wear special hats with military insignias during their game with the Cincinnati Reds on Tuesday night. This was the Nats' first home game since 30 soldiers riding in a helicopter were killed in Afghanistan on August 6th. But Commissioner Bud Selig's top executives stopped it from happening.
I have a pet peeve of players (and managers and coaches, I'm looking at you Terry Francona) wearing their uniforms properly. I know there is a rule about uniforms and such but special permission can be granted in certain cases.
Didn't some of the Mets wear FDNY/ NYPD/ PAPD hats for the remainder of the 2001 season after September 11th despite being fined?
I'm not sure what the deal is here.
