I've meant to ask this question for a while now. So, I know the SOX logo has taken over the white sock in the diamond on the left sleeve of the road greys. Well, I've noticed two diamond-shaped black patches with writing that I cannot make out on them. I don't remember reading or hearing about a new patch on the uniforms. Would someone be able to clue me in, thanks!

Both are for Sox folks who've died this year: One say "Hic Man" for Kevin Hickey, and the other says "WMS" for William "Moose" Skowron.

It's actually "BMS" but yeah, they are for Hickey and Skowron

Thanks, Harry, that was a brain fart on my part...you are correct.

What's kind of weird is that on the black tops, one of the patches has a white outline and one doesn't, so they don't match. Not a huge deal, but it doesn't look great IMO.

Did anyone notice that the Sox were wearing a special Memorial Day hat during the game Monday?

I believe the plan is to wear the hat on Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and September 11th.

Those hats really do not look good on TV. Huge downgrade from the previous Memorial Day/4th of July/September 11th hats, which were already quite terrible
