On August 22, Mississippi Braves players will wear special camouflage baseball caps representing The ALS Association and the Mississippi Army National Guard.

In addition, the Braves will donate $2 for every ticket purchased at the gate, and proceeds from the Tennis Ball Toss will also benefit The ALS Association.
