America's Game

Written by

Chillicothe OH -- The Post 757 Baseball team had the honor of joining some of our Veterans at the Chillicothe Veteran's Affairs Medical Center for "America's Game"! Some of our players, parents and coaches had the opportunity to spend time with the Veterans while watching the Army/Navy Football game, judging the Chili Cookoff and playing cornhole. We're very proud of the players for jumping right in and helping transport the Vets and join in the great conversations with some of our Country's heros! 

We also want to give a shoutout to Kim Hoffman for entering our baseball team's pot of chili in the cookoff....and for bringing home the hardware for 1st place out of the 10 entries!!
