Expressing military thanks at the All-Star game

Jul 30, 2013

Even in baseball, players and fans can put aside their rivalries to come together in support of our troops. Leading up to the All-Star Game in New York City, Bank of America, the Official Bank of Major League Baseball, teamed up with MLB, Wounded Warrior Project, and Welcome Back Veterans to show their appreciation to our service members and to raise funds for nonprofits that help members of the military here at home. These photos show just a few of the scheduled events. You can still express your own message of troop thanks; for each photo or message, $1 will be donated to military nonprofits:
