Yankees in red - you're not seeing things

Here's a weird sight. That's Yankees pitcher Phil Hughes wearing a red Yankees cap while on the mound this afternoon against the Rangers in Texas.
It's not about style, it's about honoring Memorial Day in a league-wide showing of respect to the country's fallen soldiers. The umpires are also wearing red today in Texas. (The Rangers already wear red)
For those keeping score at home, this is the first time the Yanks have worn red hats.
The league will also do this on July 4 and Sept. 11
