‘Bigger than a game’: US Military All-Stars come out to shine against Northwest Indiana Oilmen By DAVE MELTON. Tim Duncan, a lieutenant junior grade in the Coast Guard, said his childhood dream was to be a professional baseball player. But as he grew up, Duncan has learned to appreciate the game in every form.“It’s always been bigger than a game,” Duncan said. “Here, you get to experience that firsthand.” READ MORE

As the All*Stars Takes on the drive from Wa. State to the MidWest, major storms caused hundreds of miles of hotels to be booked. The buses and Heroes of the Diamond, pull into a shopping center parking lot to rest. Causing the team to have to drive less distance needed to NOT HAVE TO DRIVE so much the day of the first game in the MidWest. Not one Military man complains of the 8 hrs drive, now needed just to arrive on time for the scheduled game. Tank Stone says, “they will do their duty and shake it off to represent! Thank God this old man doesn’t have to swing with the All*Stars, I don’t think I can shake as I did as a younger man” as he laughed!!

Sweets down Military All-Stars, 9-3 The Walla Walla Sweets opened a six-game homestand at Borleske Stadium in fine fashion Thursday night with a 9-3, non-West Coast League victory over the Military All-Stars in a game much closer than the final tally suggests. READ MORE

Servicemen raise awareness through playing baseball | RIDGEFIELD — With their first game of the summer in a lightning delay, several players from the U.S. Military All-Star team stood in the outfield with members of the Showtime 18U baseball squad. They laughed, had some friendly competition and got to know one another as the rain drenched the Ridgefield Outdoor Recreation Complex. The game, which was part of the Hanson Cossman Tournament, was eventually cancelled. Still, there was valuable lessons to be learned. “I think we’re all still little kids at heart,” said Tim Duncan, a member of the U.S. Coast Guard out of Seattle. “When I was their age, it was all competition. … We’re out here spreading the love. At the end of the day, it’s a bigger picture than stepping on ballfields.” READ MORE

“Our own returning Navy Seal Daniel Vargas, was able to Fly in for the Tournament in the multiple stadiums we played in WA. Although his new partner Thor missed his Friend, Danny was only gone for one week. That’s all we could get him, but what a week for the 3 time returning All*Star!!  Navy Seal Daniel Vargas helped his team known as the Heroes of the Diamond, to come, to be seen and to take note of! Showing his pitching skills and determination to kick butt, with a smile. Cmdr Stone with his own smile said,” like a fine wine he gets better each year, but doesn’t age”.  LOL

Like the 30 plus players just this season, Danny will not be able to visit next season, our 30th Anniversary. He will be protecting our Freedoms, God speed my brother!  Stone says and adds, These brave warfighters coming in from the Battlefield to the Ballfield, “ It’s more than Just Baseball”. They Honor all Veterans along the tour route, they Honor the Fallen & Gold Star Families, but yet find the time to play America’s favorite pastime Baseball and pretty darn good too. They held a kids clinic today & last week worked and played with the Handicapped kids from the Miracle League of WA. 

Does it give you a chill, a sense of comfort, that a young man like that is who is now returning “ From the Ballfield to the Battlefield “ to protect your family’s freedom? Well it does MINE! Now imagine all of these Heroes, all of each of the 5 Branches of service they represent and all of their hometown folks & families supporting them, feel the warmth, the comfort? We Stand for our Flag, our Heroes and our Country. God bless our 2019 team & God Bless the USA. Be safe Danny & Thor too!!
