"I think it means a lot," Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy said. "The reason why we're able to play this game for a living is because of our veterans, guys and women who risked their lives for our freedom, going all the way back to the founding of our country. It's important that we honor them and not take them for granted."
Lucroy is a supporter of the Fisher House Foundation, which provides free or low-cost housing to military veterans and their families.
On Monday, both teams wore special camouflage caps and uniforms. At 3 p.m. CT, the Brewers planned to pause the game for an MLB-wide moment of silence in the National Moment of Remembrance.
