Louisville, Vanderbilt baseball teams to pay tribute to Boston Marathon bombing with uniforms (Picture)
We have already shown you a number of tributes professional sports organizations and athletes have put on display to show their support for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombing, and we’re starting to see similar tributes at the lower levels as well. The entire nation has felt the sting of the horrific events that took place on Monday afternoon, and many athletes and teams are trying to do their part to help in any way they can.
As you can see from the photo above that the Louisville baseball team tweeted, the Cardinals will be wearing Patriotic uniforms for their game against Kentucky on Tuesday night.
“We will be wearing our Patriotic uniforms tonight in support of Boston an this great country,” the baseball team’s Twitter account wrote.
It would appear that Louisville is not alone, as USA Today Sports pointed out that the Vanderbilt baseball team also tweeted the following on Tuesday morning.
Commodores will wear their Red, White & Blue uniforms tonight in honor of the first responders at yesterday’s Boston Marathon.
