All 30 Major League Baseball teams to wear Stoneman Douglas hats this weekend

The teams can donate to charities of their choice, but Major League Baseball is recommending teams donate to the Broward Education Foundation, which has organized the official Stoneman Douglas Victims Fund.

The players will then have the option of wearing the caps during the games.

Fourteen students and three staff members were killed on February 14 when a former student at the school opened fire on campus.

While we haven't heard which teams will wear the caps just yet, Chicago Cubs star Anthony Rizzo is an alum of Douglas High and left spring training to go home and help his community heal. "There's obviously deeper ties for me than the rest of the league".

Major League Baseball has announced its latest pace of play initiatives, with several rule changes taking effect for the 2018 season. MLB's uniform restrictions will likely prevent the team from sporting the caps during the exhibition contest at Roger Dean Chevrolet Stadium in Jupiter, Florida.

Commissioner Rob Manfred said that within 48 hours, all 30 teams were confirmed to wear the school hats during pregame warm-ups for their exhibition openers. The Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers will wear the caps on Saturday for their openers. A mound visit is defined as a manager or coach visiting the mound, a player (including the catcher) leaving his position to confer with the pitcher, or the pitcher leaving the mound to confer with another player.
