On the off chance that Spring Training and the World Baseball Classic weren’t enough to get you amped up for the 2023 Major League Baseball season, we’d also like to remind you that the American Pastime does an exemplary job of celebrating those who’ve served our country. Interspersed throughout the regular season schedule, many teams reserve specific games to honor active and former duty service members with their own unique tributes and in-game ceremonies. We’ve taken the liberty of providing a directory on your behalf. To top it off, your verified GovX membership allows you to receive discounted tickets all season long. Have fun and we’ll see you at the ballpark.
