Veterans Wall Salute to Service

UpdatedMonday May 30, 2022 byBrendan Flatow.

In 2021 WRA Baseball was proud to name our newest field in honor of our community’s veterans.  Veterans Field has already hosted exciting games and been the site of endless memories for our players and families.  We are excited that in addition to hosting great baseball, it will also be home to the next phase of our project to honor Whitpain Veterans. 

The Veterans Field dugouts will serve as honor walls in tribute to those that have served.  These honor walls will don the names of local veterans with ties to the Whitpain and WRA community. 

This great program needs your help...

Nominate a Veteran  

Please nominate a veteran that in addition to serving in our armed forces has a connection to WRA or Whitpain by clicking here to access the electronic nomination form.  Each nomination will be reviewed by our Veterans Wall Committee.  If eligible, their name, rank and branch of armed forces will be placed on a plaque on one of the two honor wall dugouts. 

 

Homers for Heroes

Help us support the honor wall through Homers for Heroes.  Each year between 5 and 10 home runs are hit by our 9 to 12 year old players. We ask you to make a pledge to donate every time a ball clears the fence or a player hustles around the bases for a HR. No money is due until the end of the summer season.

Take part in this fun event by making your pledge by clicking here.

 

For any questions regarding nominations or Homers for Heroes, please contact Brian McShane at bjmcshaneis@gmail.com.
