A salute to softball veterans!
Today is Veterans Day. I would like to keep our past article on softball veterans going by including any upper level softball players (past and present) names that we don't already have on the page. This includes Sponsors, Managers, Umpires, and Directors. Email me at DW@softballcenter.com to add a name.
Also at the bottom of this page I will add a section to list any upper level softball players that have a spouse, grandson, son, or parent that is a veteran.
Thank you for your service!
A big thank you from SoftballCenter.com to all the military veteran's past and present that served our country.
