9/11: We Shall Not Forget
To commemorate 13 years since the tragedies of September 11, 2001, Major League Baseball, its Clubs and players have joined in the spirit of Baseball’s unified commitment to vow that “We Shall Not Forget” and observe September 11th as a National Day of Service and Remembrance.
This remembrance is part of Baseball’s ongoing and league-wide effort to honor those whose lives were lost and affected on that tragic day.
At Miller Park tonight:
- On-field personnel, including players, coaches and umpires, will wear an American flag patch embroidered on the side of their caps. MLB proceeds of sales of caps will be donated to the 9/11 Memorial and Museum; the Pentagon Memorial and the Flight 93 Memorial.
- Special line-up cards and base jewels will be used for tonight’s game.
- We will mark the anniversary with a moment of silence and recognition of First Responders and Military in attendance.
- The national anthem will be performed by Oak Creek Battalion Chief Joseph Pulvermacher and the Color Guard will be the Milwaukee Firefighters’ Honor Guard.
- Milwaukee Fire Chief Mark Rohlfing will throw the Ceremonial First Pitch
- We will sing “God Bless America” during the 7th inning stretch, led by Bob Kozlowski, Ret. USAF and Miller Park Guest Services staff.
- The “We Shall Not Forget” MLB silhouetted batter logo will be displayed in the park.
You’ll also want to set your DVR. Tonight, MLB Network will re-air the “Nine Innings from Ground Zero” special developed by MLB Productions, and will also feature coverage of the day’s events throughout the League in its studio programming.
