The Seattle Mariner’s hosted a special pregame ceremony honoring the United States Armed Forces, service veterans, and support organizations at T-Mobile Park Friday April 13th, 2019.
Each service was represented. Starting with the senior commanders of each branch receiving a plaque from the Mariners thank them for their service.
Then enlisted service members of each branch walked out on the field down the third and first base lines to be recognized. In addition to the military, several military support organizations walked out with them including the USO Northwest.
Next an inter-service color guard came out on to the field and presented the colors, both the Mariners and the Astros joined the service members out on the field for the National Anthem.
Lastly, a representative from each service was chosen to throw out a pre-game pitch.
We salute you tonight. We appreciate your service every day.
