Cubs, Pirates to raise prostate cancer awareness with special uniforms

Photos from the Cubs-Pirates game on Saturday, June 17, 2017, in Pittsburgh.

Don’t adjust your television if you notice the Cubs wearing a lighter shade of blue on their uniforms Saturday night and Sunday against the Pirates.

The Cubs and the other 29 major league baseball teams are celebrating Father’s Day, raising awareness and funds in the fight against prostate cancer by wearing special uniforms.

MLB will donate all royalties from the sale of the caps and jerseys to the Prostate Cancer Foundation and Stand Up to Cancer.

Players will be allowed to wear blue equipment – including compression sleeves, batting gloves, footwear, wrist/elbow/leg guards and catcher’s equipment.

A specially stitched baseball matching the theme of the uniform will be used Sunday.
