Major League Baseball announced today it will start wearing its support for the nation's troops on its sleeve, with the unveiling of a new line of military-themed clothing to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.

The line includes men's and women's camouflage as well as army green t-shirts, baseball hats and army style hats that incorporate the names, numbers and facsimile signatures of 26 major leaguers.

A percentage of the proceeds will go straight to the charity, which works to provide programs and services to thousands of wounded service men and women. The clothing is on sale now at Wal-Mart locations around the country

Johnny Damon of the Detroit Tigers, who is also a national spokesman for the Wounded Warriors Project, said "it's an honor to help raise funds and awareness of our wounded warriors by supporting the project."

"Thousands of brave young men and women put their lives on the line every day, and this program gives us an opportunity to show our gratitude."

The Wounded Warrior Project raised $41,768,466 in 2008, according to the most recent statistics.
