Nationals players wore the burgundy hats with ``VT'' in orange when they took the field for the top of the second inning, and the team said they'd keep them on for the rest of the game.
Manager Manny Acta, pitching coach Randy St. Claire and other coaches wore white ``VT'' caps with burgundy stitching.
The Nationals said the idea of wearing the Virginia Tech caps came from a fan from Calvert County, Md., who e-mailed team president Stan Kasten. The plan was to wear the caps from the beginning of the game, but a truck bringing them from Virginia got stuck in traffic.
The Nationals held moments of silence for the victims of Monday's shooting before their home games Monday and Tuesday. Washington's RFK Stadium is about 4 hours away from the university's Blacksburg campus.
