Friday is Military Appreciation Night at the ballpark as the Quincy Gems play host to the Military All-Stars at Q.U. Stadium. The Military All-Star team was founded by President George H. Bush to promote the Wounded Warrior Program in the United States.
Having played baseball for some 26 years, I still feel like I can put the catchers gear on and get behind the plate again. As a matter of fact, the Quincy Gems have asked me to do just that for an exhibition game this summer. I still haven't agreed to that one yet, but I would love to.
