MLB Allows Black Lives Matter and Social Justice Jersey Patches

MLB Allows Black Lives Matter and Social Justice Jersey Patches

Major League Baseball players can change up their uniforms — at least for opening day.

The league announced players have the option of wearing a patch with “Black Lives Matter” or “United for Change” on their sleeves.

Teams can also stencil an inverted MLB logo with “BLM” or “United for Change” on the back of the pitcher’s mound during opening games this weekend.

Players can wear a “Black Lives Matter” t-shirt during batting practice as well.

One other change — MLB is lifting restrictions on cleats for the season. Players now have permission to put messages for social justice on their spikes.
