    Got an opinion as to why major league baseball had each and every team player wear a patch in honor of the fallen students/teachers of Sandy Hook Elementary School?

    I understand it was the brain child of the management of the New York Yankees.

    Was this just another effort to again bump the tragedy to the forefront so as to keep the gun control debate going?

    Maybe next will be the Fort Hood patch followed by the Aurora patch.

    Then again maybe I was the only one to notice the patch.

    Jay, I sympathize with the families of that tragedy, but when i noticed the patch on MLB uniforms, I thought it was not appropriate at all.

    I also thought it looked like GORT the robot from the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still.

    Bad marketing and poor visual.

    Well if you feel that way- write the commissioner of baseball or your local team office

    They probably have email comments. They pay attention to every comment they get I would think and count them up

    The only thing Selig listens to is his cash register. Cha-ching, Cha-ching.

    An appropriate memorial from MLB with 26 stars in memory of the 26 children killed in the Newtown tragedy.

    Its kind of sad that Lanza's mother is left out to dry.....After all she didn't have anything to do with what went on.
