USAF ACADEMY, Colo. - The Air Force baseball program took part in the remembrance ceremonies of the victims of 9/11 at the Colorado Rockies game Sunday afternoon at Coors Field. Head coach Mike Kazlausky and his team were on hand to honor those that were lost on that tragic day.
"September 11th is a unforgettable day in every American's heart and we all will remember where we were on that tragic day," Kazlausky said.
"For the 10th anniversary of 9/11, our team had the privilege and the honor to march onto Coors Field with other service members to honor those who lost their lives on that haunting day. It will always be a cherished moment standing on the field saluting the American flag while the players and coaches from the Colorado Rookies and Cincinnati Reds joined firemen, policemen, and paramedics in holding the flag over the pitcher's mound for our National Anthem. This was an experience of a lifetime which allowed the soldiers, airmen, seamen, and cadets to reflect on their responsibility as a member of our Armed Forces. It makes me so proud to be an American and so proud to be around such great men and women at the Academy and in our military! We send a huge thank you to the Colorado Rockies for inviting us to help celebrate such a memorable event."
