Orioles ask fans to nominate a veteran to represent the team at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game

The Orioles are proud to support Major League Baseball in the PEOPLE Magazine Tribute for Heroes program and are asking fans to nominate a veteran to represent the Baltimore Orioles at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game.

Fans may nominate a veteran who has served, or is still serving in the armed forces at www.tributeforheroes.com and are encouraged to include information about the nominee's extraordinary military, community service, personal and professional accomplishments. One veteran or active military service member will be selected to represent each major league team at the 2013 MLB All-Star Game on July 16 at Citi Field in New York. The nomination deadline is May 17.

The Orioles are fortunate to be surrounded by dedicated military personnel throughout our region, and the organization appreciates all of those who risk their lives each day for our country.
