Major League Baseball honored the 100th Anniversary of Negro League Baseball. All players and umpires wore the above patch on they jerseys to commemorate the event. The original date to wear the patch was June 27 had to be moved to Aug 16 due to the implications of the COID-19 virus 

The Negro Leagues established in 1920 was the first structured league that lasted for an extended period of time. The logo used was a derivative of the official logo created by the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum, located in Kansas City, Mo
