Baltimore Orioles: Happy Veterans Day to all who served
There isn’t much going on in the Baltimore Orioles’ world right now. That seems to be about par for the course across the league. For the most part. But baseball isn’t really to topic du jour.
Today, November 11th, is Veterans Day. So I want to take a moment to thank all who have and currently are serving our nation so bravely and so proudly. America is truly free BECAUSE of the brave. We must never forget that.
Baseball of course has a very deep connection with our Armed Services, with multiple players across various generations having served. And over time, MLB players along with athletes from other sports have joined up with the USO to entertain our brave troops stationed overseas.
So while MLB celebrates dates such as Memorial Day and the Fourth of July with day games and hot dogs, I know that teams, fans, and players across the league join me today in offering a debt of gratitude to all of our nation’s brave veterans.
