On Sunday, April 9, Clark College Baseball is hosting a Military Appreciation Day at its game against Linfield College. A pre-game ceremony begins at 12:45 p.m., at Kindsfather Field on Clark’s main campus. The game will follow immediately afterward at 1:00 p.m.
Working with the college’s Veterans Resource Center, the Penguins have invited veterans of every major U.S. military conflict from World War II onward to throw out a ceremonial pitch. One of the veterans, who is in her 90s, served during WW II as a cryptographer in the WAVES (the women’s branch of the U.S. Navy Reserve).
This event is open to the public. Tickets, which can be purchased at the event, are $5 per person. Children aged 10 and under are free. Clark students, faculty, and staff are free with valid Clark ID. Members of the U.S. military are free with valid military ID.
