Dear USO Supporter --
All across America, it's Opening Day. As a player and a fan, I've always found the start of a new baseball season to be a time full of excitement and promise.
Fans streaming into ballparks, rooting like crazy for the home team. You can't beat that. This year, I'm hoping you'll help make Opening Day extra special by supporting the one team all of us are always rooting for: our troops.
Our troops' service is far more serious than any ball game. Everyday they protect the American way and make possible great moments in our lives like Opening Day. So, it only seems fitting that we open our hearts to show our troops that they have our unyielding support.
Baseball fans are some of the most dedicated and passionate people in the world. When we come together in support of our team, good things happen.
That's why I know, if we can all rally together this Opening Day, we can do something incredible for our troops. Let's make sure they know we support their service and we honor their sacrifice.
I'm truly honored to get this chance to work with the USO and give a little something back to our troops who give so much for us. And I thank you for taking part today.
Thanks for all you do for our troops,
