Camouflage themed jerseys and Sgt. Slaughter appearance highlight event

DANVILLE, Va. – The Danville Braves have announced plans for the team’s upcoming Military Appreciation Night presented by Danville Scion, Angus Heating & Air, and Blue Ridge Beverage, which will be held on Friday, July 13 when the D-Braves play the Princeton Rays.   First Pitch is set for 7:00 p.m.

The D-Braves will welcome WWE Hall of Fame inductee and G.I. Joe, Sgt. Slaughter.  For the first time ever, the D-Braves will wear a unique camouflage jersey design and hold an in-game silent auction.  Fans can bid on a chance to win a game-worn jersey directly off the player’s back!  Bids increase in $25.00 increments.  Bidding on the jerseys will run through the end of the seventh inning and the team will have a post-game pick-up for all silent auction winners.

All proceeds generated by the auction will be donated to the Danville Veteran’s Memorial.  The Danville Veteran’s Memorial features a 7 foot high by 158 foot black granite wall, which pays homage to all local veterans who died in our Nation’s wars from the American Revolution to our current conflicts.

Another aspect of Military Appreciation Night is that all military personnel and dependents, both active and retired, will receive a free ticket for the game.  Tickets may be purchased by calling the D-Braves at (434) 797-3792 or by bringing a valid military I.D. to the ALP 325 Field Box Office on the day of the game.  For more information please visit their Web site at www.dbraves.com.
