The Class-A Carolina League Frederick Keys baseball team will be throwing its support behind the Washington Capitals in a unique way one day before Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final.

When the Maryland-based Keys take on the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Friday, it’ll be “All Caps Night” with former Capitals forward Mike Knuble on hand to do the first pitch honors. The Keys will also wear special jerseys inspired by the NHL side’s 2015 Winter Classic designl.

Here’s a few better looks via the Keys’ Instagram story (s/t RMNB):

Calling it their “Summer Classic” jersey, the Keys will then auction them off with proceeds benefiting Play4TheCure, which is “dedicated to raising funds for the National Foundation for Cancer Research through competitive sports featuring recreational sports clubs, middle schools, high schools and collegiate sporting events.”
