Before the game, the Lookouts will be recognizing those who have served our country with a ceremonial first pitch and post-game access on the field to enjoy a fireworks spectacular.

"Honoring the Sacrifice" will also be promoting several of their upcoming fundraisers and talking to fans about how they can help support those who fought for the freedoms that we enjoy.
