D. C. Everest School District Youth Baseball hosted the 3 day Cal Ripken event at Kennedy Park in Weston WI. from July 6th to the 8th, Roman McGuire youth baseball director contacted us to see if we could have Veterans present at the ball games for the National Anthem. Having a father who is a Veteran, Roman felt it would be good to show all involved the importance of Veterans in our community. We were more than happy to help them out. The response was overwhelming as the players came out to the base lines to show respect for our Nation.
