Armed Forces Recognition Night

armed forces nightEach year during the tournament, the MCYSA hosts an “Armed Forces Recognition Night,” and veterans of each branch of the service are recognized during the pregame ceremony prior to a Feature Game. Veterans in uniform present the colors prior to the National Anthem.

JA Frate has been our sponsor for our annual Armed Forces Night. JA Frate is well known throughout our community for their support of veterans’ causes, and for their Memorial Trailers which recognize local fallen heroes.

If you are a veteran and are interested in participating in Armed Forces Night, please contact Diana Floress via email at
