On this Memorial Day, I would like to stop and honor the men and women who paid the ultimate sacrifice fighting for the things the rest of us take for granted in our daily lives. We may say our favorite athlete or celebrity are our heroes, but in reality the men and women of the military truly are. But there are athletes who are heroes also. Here are the major league players who lost their lives for us:
World War I:
World War II:
These are just the major leaguers. Here is a great website that shows all the baseball players who were in the military: http://www.baseballinwartime.com/ There are many more who fought for our freedom. Please take moment to remember and honor them.
