JUPITER, Fla. – The Miami Marlins are planning to honor the victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting massacre.

Before Friday's spring training opener in Jupiter, the team will wear Stoneman Douglas baseball caps in pre-game warmups. The team is not sure if it will have clearance from Major League Baseball to wear the hats during the game.

The team told Local 10 News that the hats have already been ordered.

Outfielder Lewis Brinson grew up in Broward County and played games against Stoneman Douglas.

He told reporters Monday that he visited shooting victims in the hospital over the weekend.

Seventeen people were killed in the shooting last Wednesday.
