EXTRALEAGUE ARMY DAY is scheduled for Saturday April 29th at Krc where Tempo Titans will host Eagles Praha. Beside the Extraleague game, for which there were designed special uniforms in cameo style, visitors can expect army vehicles and equipment show. The program starts with U7 game between Titans and Eagles. The first pitch of the game will be thrown by minister of defense Mr. Martin Stropnicky.
There was also plan to have another Army Day in Trebic, without special uniform, but with army program, flying show over the field was cancelled due to unstable weather conditions, only the baseball game will be played. Finally, also Arrows Ostrava is planning their own ARMY DAY in June with similar program alike in Trebic.
CBA wants to give tribute to the armed forces, as it is common in the United States. Baseball is the second sport in Czech Republic after ice hockey (Sparta Praha) which is giving tribute to armed forces. CBA is expecting that this event will become a regular part of the Extraleague schedule in the coming years.
Please check the latest video on Facebook page Baseball Czech, where you can see the uniform design for tomorrow’s ARMY DAY at Krc.
