And Phil Wellman Will Toss Out the First Pitch!

Twenty-five of twenty-five soldiers agree: facing live pitching in Leesburg, Florida beats facing live ammunition in Baghdad:

Here's a chance to salute America's pastime as well as those who step up to the
plate to protect the nation.The U.S. Military All-Star Team will play the Leesburg Lightning at 7 p.m. Friday at Pat Thomas Stadium in Leesburg. The Lightning are part of the Florida Collegiate Summer League. Admission is free . . .

. . . The first 100 fans to arrive at the Leesburg stadium near Venetian Gardens will receive a free U.S. Military All-Star Team T-shirt.

Hurry, though, because the second 100 will be drafted and sent to Anbar Province.
