Purple Heart Baseball game to follow Angels vs. White Sox contest

ANAHEIM, CA – The Angels announced today that the club has partnered with State Farm to pay tribute to the United States Military for Armed Forces Day on May 18 at Angel Stadium. Honorary events will take place throughout that afternoon’s contest against the Chicago White Sox at 1:05PM with both teams debuting MLB’s new camouflage hats (see image below).

Armed Forces Day begins with multiple military vehicle displays outside of Angel Stadium and a Camo Hat promotion for all fans in attendance, courtesy of State Farm, while supplies last. A pre-game ceremony is scheduled for approximately 12:30PM and will include: a World War II aircraft flyover, an honorary bat boy (local Gold-Star child who lost a parent in combat), a joint forces color guard, an on-field military presentation and a first pitch and National Anthem performed by veterans. Additionally, an American flag previously flown at a North Kabul NATO Base in Afghanistan will be raised during the ceremony by special guest, Buzz Aldrin.

On game day, veterans and active duty military can purchase tickets at the stadium box office for 50% off selected seating with a Military ID or VA Card. Angels Baseball has also partnered with season-seat holders and State Farm to donate tickets to local military branches.

The day’s events will conclude with a postgame three-inning Purple Heart Baseball game. A wounded warrior team from Fort Sam Houston (San Antonio, TX) will take on Camp Pendleton wounded warriors (Oceanside, CA) approximately 30 minutes after the completion of the Angels/White Sox game. Fans in attendance for the Angels game are encouraged to stay and enjoy the event as these individuals represent over 50,000 service members who have been wounded over the last decade. All donations will go to support military and wounded veteran organizations.
