The Pirates will wear these jerseys and hats for Military Appreciation Days during Thursday home games this season.

The Pirates will continue their recent practice of wearing uniforms honoring the military during Thursday home games this season. The team released the design of the 2018 Military Appreciation jerseys and caps Thursday.

The updated jersey is a white button-down with green numbers and lettering, a military five-star patch on the right sleeve and a camouflage “Jolly Roger” Pirates logo patch on the left sleeve. The cap is solid green with a camouflage bill and black “P.”

The Pirates will wear the uniforms during all eight of their Thursday home games, when representatives from a designated military organization are honored in a pregame on-field ceremony and hosted in the Pirates Charities Suite. Pirates Charities 50/50 Raffle proceeds from those games will support that specific military organization.

This will be the fourth season of the program.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
