This is how MLB celebrated Father's Day 2016

The third Sunday in June means one thing -- Father's Day. We're sure you totally remembered and sent the world's greatest gift to your dad, but just in case, we'll pause for a moment so you can go make a phone call to a certain someone.
OK, is everyone back? Now it's time to see how MLB celebrated Father's Day in 2016. Fittingly, Big Papi had a few words to offer on fatherhood: 

League-wide, teams adopted blue-accented uniforms:

Even Orbit got some special duds:

In Kansas City, Sluggerrr's dad stopped by for a visit:

Justin Verlander celebrated by sharing some 80-grade dad jokes:

And Noah Syndergaard gave a shout out to the person who is absolutely, 100 percent his father:

Jason Kipnis and his brother proved you're never too old to play catch with dad:

Over in Baltimore, the Orioles held a pregame catch session for fans before the game:

In Houston, Astros players caught first pitches from their dads: 

And of course, all over the league, your favorite players were sharing photos of their own fathers:

In Los Angeles, Clayton Kershaw posed with his daughter for a precious dugout photo-op:

The A's and Padres, meanwhile, both hosted some dads and children on the field for a postgame catch:

Before the A's battled the Angels, by the way, ceremonial first pitches were delivered from Stephen Vogt's dad, Marcus Semien's grandfather and Zach Neal's dad:

Miguel Cabrera wore special Fathers Day-themed cleats for Sunday's game:

Do you think Marcus Stroman's dad could still pick him up like this?

More importantly, do you think Andrew McCutchen's dad can convince him to wear this suit again?
