Tradition of Honoring Local Heroes continues with help from AllSouth Federal Credit Union
COLUMBIA, S.C.- The Columbia Fireflies are seeking nominations for local military personnel, including those actively deployed, reservists and veterans, to be featured in their fourth annual Military Hero Baseball Card Set Giveaway presented by AllSouth Federal Credit Union. The card sets will be given away at a Fireflies game on Friday, April 10 to the first 1,000 fans in attendance.
“The Fireflies have always had a deep appreciation for and connection to all members of the military,” said Fireflies President John Katz, “We are proud to continue our partnership with AllSouth to honor our local heroes – both past and present – in such a special way.”
The Military Hero Baseball Card Set is an initiative that the Fireflies have proudly produced since its inception in 2017. Since then, over 60 different local military members have been included in the card sets and recognized on-field at Segra Park.
“Supporting our military is the foundation on which AllSouth was built,” said Vice President of Marketing for AllSouth Federal Credit Union, Connie Hernandez Vizitei, “and we continue this tradition. We are honored to sponsor a set of baseball cards for those who proudly served our country.”
The Fireflies are now accepting nominations for this set and veterans as well as active duty service members across all branches of the military are encouraged to participate. Those selected for the card set will be contacted directly by a Fireflies representative.
Nominations can be submitted online now through February 19 here:
