For the fifth consecutive year, Major League Baseball teams will honor America’s veterans wearing patriotic on-field fashions. New Era, the official on-field cap of Major League Baseball, unveiled the 2012 “Stars & Stripes” caps that will be worn on Memorial Day and on July 4th, to support the Welcome Back Veterans fund.

In past years, the brand has incorporated a stars and stripes motif with red, white and blue hues, into team hats. This season takes a different design approach. The caps will remain in each team’s official color, but a digital camouflage appliqué will fill the MLB logo on the front of the cap. This new look and feel is similar to modern day military uniforms.

“The Stars & Stripes program is one of the ventures I’m most proud of as it allows organizations, players and fans to honor the brave men and women who serve our country in a unique way,” said Christopher H. Koch, New Era CEO.  “To mark the fifth anniversary of the program, we decided to make these caps even more different by adding camouflage color scheme to each of the logos.”

All caps will be available at and in Stadium shops with proceeds going to the Welcome Back Veterans fund. Here’s a preview:

A Glam Slam will be giving away one “Stars & Stripes” Yankees cap and one “Stars & Stripes” Mets caps to two lucky readers.
