Major League Baseball:
Miami Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves at Fort Bragg, North Carolina(Fayetteville, N.C.) 8pm Game is a sell-out, but will be televised on ESPN with 12,500 military personnel/fans on hand to watch this game…More fans tonight than the Marlins are used to seeing at their games down in Miami….
Baseball has meant a lot to our country over the years, even back to the days when President Lincoln was in the White House….Many times baseball would come first and political matters second…Like who’s on first and who’s on second, but with President Lincoln, on a given day Baseball would come first….
Baseball’s ties to the military go back as far as the Civil War, when President Abraham Lincoln built a baseball field on the White House lawn and was allegedly once late for a war council meeting, saying, “They will just have to wait. It is almost my turn at bat.”
