JERSEY SHORE, NJ – The BlueClaws will once again honor military heroes through a special post-game ceremony after the July 6th Military Appreciation Night game, which is presented by OceanFirst Bank. This program recognizes and remembers military heroes that are no longer with us, and dedicated their lives to service to the nation. The team is now collecting nominations for military veterans to include in the ceremony. Fans are encouraged to fill out the form linked below.
CLICK HERE to fill out the nomination form.
“These military servicemen and servicewomen are the best of us,” said BlueClaws Team President Joe Ricciutti. “This ceremony from Military Appreciation Night last season was one of the most moving moments of the year and we’re looking forward to honoring additional heroes in 2023.
“We know there are so many worthy honorees for this program and thank everyone in advance for their nominations.”
Part of the nomination process asks nominators to describe the reasons, with information about their service, as to why they are most deserving.
The BlueClaws will select a group of heroes from the nominations. Each hero will have their name on the back of one special jersey worn by the BlueClaws at the Military Appreciation Night game. After that game, each player or coach will present the jersey to the respective families on the field.
The BlueClaws have several additional 2023 military-based initiatives.
Wreaths Across America Donation Package
The BlueClaws have partnered with Wreaths Across America on a program through which fans can sponsor a wreath to be laid at the gravesite of a veteran but also donate a ticket to a military member for Military Appreciation night at the ballpark.
There are two levels to the partnership:
- For $15, fans will sponsor a wreath and donate a ticket for Military Apprecition Night.
- For $25, fans will sponsor a wreath, donate a ticket, and receive a ticket of their own.
