For Army veteran Jonathan Popovich, the “Tribute for Heroes” campaign brings together two things that are very important to him ?” his military service and baseball.
Each of the 30 Major League Baseball teams has three finalists. The 90 were selected by a guest panel that included two retired generals as well as major leaguers including former Yankee Nick Swisher, Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Giants pitcher Barry Zito.
One winner from each of the teams, as voted by the fans, will be included in All-Star week festivities at Citi Field and recognized during the pre-game ceremony leading up to the game on Tuesday July 16. The overall winner will be featured in the July 22nd issue of “People” which comes out on Friday July 12th.
