MLB & Clubs to Observe September 11th Anniversary
Major League Baseball and its Clubs will commemorate the anniversary of September 11, 2001 tomorrow with on-field tributes at Major League games. This remembrance is part of Baseball's ongoing and league-wide effort to honor those whose lives were lost and affected on that tragic day.
Home Clubs will mark the anniversary with pre-game ceremonies, including a moment of silence, and the "We Shall Not Forget" MLB silhouetted batter ribbon will be displayed throughout ballparks on Wednesday, September 11, 2013. In addition, special lineup cards and base jewels will be used for every game played. All on-field personnel, including players, coaches and umpires, will wear an American flag patch embroidered on the side of their caps.
Also on Wednesday, MLB Network will televise the "Nine Innings From Ground Zero" special developed by MLB Productions at 12:30 p.m. ET and feature coverage of the day's events across MLB in its studio programming beginning with "The Rundown" at 2:00 p.m. ET. MLB.com will provide complete coverage of the day's ceremonies and perspectives through columns, news articles, multimedia and photographs across the league. Additionally, MLB.com, the 30 Club websites and their social media channels will deliver messages supporting service and of remembrance.
The Toronto Blue Jays will wear customized caps recognizing both the United States and Canada.
