Legion to host 'Veteran's Night at the Ballpark' June 28
The River Falls American Legion Post 121 will host "Veteran's Night at the Ballpark" when the Legion baseball team takes on Hudson on Tuesday, June 28, at the high school field.
Festivities will begin at 5:45 p.m. with the Post 121 Honor Guard presenting the colors and members of the Croix Chordsmen singing the National Anthem. A Post 121 veteran will throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the 6 p.m. start to the game.
All veterans in attendance will be recognized prior to the game and can get a free beverage, sandwich (hot dog, brat or burger) and chips by identifying themselves as a veteran at the concession stand at any time during the game.
Due to the distance from the parking lot to the ball field at the high school, Post 121 will provide electric cart transportation for any veteran needing assistance between the parking lot and the field before, during and after the game.
