Tribute: Arizona Diamondbacks wear Prescott Fire Department hats during batting practice [photo]; Updated

From an article posted yesterday on the Diamondbacks’ website:

Prior to tomorrow’s game, the D-backs will honor first responders and military with a special pregame ceremony on the field beginning at 6 p.m. The on-field ceremonies include a moment of silence and photo montage in memory of the 19 firefighters followed by “Amazing Grace” performed by the Arizona Fire Service Bagpipe and Drum Band, which includes more than 45 firefighters from communities all over the state.

The Diamondbacks, as well as the New York Mets, had previously honored the fallen firefighters by displaying “Yarnell #19” jerseys in their respective dugouts.

    This is a wonderful gesture by the Diamondbacks. If you want to help, may I suggest the 100 Club of Arizona. They assist the families of fallen police officers and firefighters.
