Here are a few pictures from tonight’s pregame:
Staff Sergeant Daniel Gilyeat threw out the ceremonial first pitch. He is a recipient of two Purple Hearts and a Silver Star. Gilyeat lost his leg in combat while serving in Iraq. He continues to work with disabled veterans through Operation Payback and the Wounded Warriors project. Outfielder Jeff Francoeur caught Sgt. Gilyeat’s first pitch.
