Later this week, boxing legend Muhammad Ali will be laid to rest in his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky. However, his legacy will live on forever and his impact on the Louisville community and the entire world will never be forgotten.

When the Louisville baseball team takes the field on Saturday for their NCAA Baseball Super Regional against UC Santa Barbara, they will be ensuring that they do their part in remembering the legend.

On Wednesday, the Louisville equipment staff unveiled new “Ali” patches that will be worn on the baseball’s team’s hats — presumably through the remainder of the NCAA baseball tournament.

The caps were spotted on players when they met with the media.

Kudos to the Cardinals for such a great gesture.

Louisville and UC Santa Barbara go head-to-head on Saturday, June 11 at Jim Patterson Stadium. The game is set to begin at noon.
