BBB Military All-Stars
Who is your personal Military All-Star? Nine local military heroes will be honored at the game! The evening will begin with a dedication ceremony to honor the military heroes before the game. Each one will be introduced to the baseball fans, receive an award on the field and be featured in a special commemorative baseball card deck to be handed out to game attendees, featuring the “Military All-Stars” and detailing their careers in the military.
Last year, many game attendees enjoyed this so much, they even had the “Military All-Stars” sign their card in the deck!
Game Worn Jersey Auction
During the game there is a game worn jersey auction to raise money for our BBB Military Line Student Ethics Scholarship Award. Players wear special “military” themed jerseys, which are auctioned off during the game. Proceeds from the auction go into our BBB Military Line Student Ethics Scholarship Fund. The scholarship is presented to a child of a military family in their junior year, who personifies high ethics demonstrated through leadership, community service, and overall personal integrity and academic history. This year’s scholarship winner will be announced at our Awards Banquet on November 9th at Aria in Prospect.
Accredited Business Appreciation Event
BBB also hosts an Accredited Business Appreciation event during the game in one of the Luxury Suites - so let us know if you are an Accredited Business in the area, and are interested in attending this year. There are 40 complementary tickets available for local Accredited Businesses! Come out and network with us and fellow business owners over food, drinks and a great game of baseball! Oh - and FIREWORKS!
