Boston College Baseball To Honor Wounded Warriors On Saturday, April 27 Vs. Miami

via Boston College Baseball on Facebook

The Boston College baseball team will honor current and former United States military members for the April 27 home game against Miami.

The Boston College baseball team will honor current and former United States military members for the April 27 home game against Miami. The Eagles will wear specially-designated Under Armour Wounded Warriors Project (WWP) uniforms for the 1:30 p.m. game. The uniforms are similar to the football program's WWP jerseys worn for last October's home game against Maryland.

"One of the many things my father taught me that I hope to pass on to our boys is to love our country, respect our flag and revere our military" head coach Mike Gambino said. "Too often we talk of athletes as heroes when these men and women who serve our country and protect our freedoms are the real heroes. We are honored to be able to team up with a great organization like the Wounded Warriors Project and pay tribute to not just our wounded veterans, but everyone who has served."

More photos of the uniforms can be found here. Overall I think Under Armour's Wounded Warriors Project unform design lends itself a bit better to the baseball team than the football program. It would have been nice if there was more of a tie-in to the Boston Marathon bombings. Perhaps the team can wear armbands similar to the ones the Sox and Indians wore last night in addition to donning the WWP uniforms.

WWP bracelets and foam fingers will be given out at Saturday's game. If in the area, consider heading on over to Shea Field to support the baseball team and a worthy cause.
