Denver Eagles Games on 9-11 Dedicated to Families of Fallen Victims

Sunday marked the Tenth Anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attack on the United States of America. That afternoon, before the first game of their double header, the Denver Eagles JV baseball team took much time to embellish their dugout with American flags and our country’s patriotic symbols before circling in centerfield for a meaningful time of prayer. Then, alongside their opponents, both teams lined the 1st & 3rd base foul lines for a time of silence and prayerful remembrance. With caps removed and hearts lifted, the players, coaches, and upmires began singing “God Bless America;” what followed was the entire crowd coming to its feet and joining in resounding honor. The second pre-game ceremony, this time with different upmires and a different opponent, proved even more powerful, honoring, and moving, and, that afternoon, we think Heaven smiled.
