ATLANTA – The Atlanta Braves will wear caps on Friday to honor the victims who were killed in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
In that shooting, 17 people — students and faculty members — were killed.
Nikolas Cruz, a former student at the school, has been charged in connection with the shooting.
The caps will be autographed and placed up for auction.
All proceeds will go to the victims fund, and the hats will be available here for bid from March 1 to March.
Atlanta joins the other 29 MLB teams with the option to wear the hats before games this weekend with the option to wear in-game.
The Braves will play their first spring game on Friday against the New York Mets.
