Illini To Wear Camouflage In Series Finale With Spartans
On Sunday, May 6, the Illinois Fighting Illini baseball team will host "Honor and Serve Day" and to honor the occasion the team will be sporting commemorative blue and orange camouflage jerseys.
Honor and Serve Day and the team wearing the special uniforms is designed to honor University of Illinois student veterans and all of America's military heros.
The Illini will be closing out their series with Michigan State on May 6 when they wear the special jerseys. Jerseys that were donated to the team by the Fighting Illini Dugout Club and after the game the jerseys will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to the Don Moyer Boys and Girls Club.
Camouflage is nothing new to baseball, but has only recently made the jump into college baseball with Penn State donning camouflage recently.
