Marcus Stroman paid tribute to the Humboldt Broncos with messages on his cap
The touching tributes to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League's Humboldt Broncos tragedy have been pouring in from everywhere. On Friday night, the team's bus crashed on the way to a playoff game, killing 15 people.
Marcus Stroman, who started on the mound for the Jays on Saturday night against the Rangers, sported a hat that had "Humboldt Broncos!" inscribed on the right side, and "SK" on the left for Saskatchewan:

According to MLB.com's Dic Humphrey, Stroman doesn't have a special connection with the Broncos, but he wanted to show sympathy for the lives lost in the accident.
The Rangers also held a moment of silence at Globe Life Park in memory of the Broncos prior to the game:
