USNA Baseball Takes Over the Bob Feller Act of Valor Award Ceremony

 The United States Naval Academy's baseball team was given the chance to volunteer at the annual Bob Feller Act of Valor Award Ceremony, on November 5th, in Washington D.C. 28 players and staff attended the ceremony, where they were received with praise and respect from spectators and others in the room.

The award ceremony was created in 2013 by the United States Navy, Major League Baseball, and the Baseball Hall of Fame. The award ceremony goes out to three deserving recipients every year, one MLB player, one Navy Chief Petty Officer and once dead or alive baseball hall of famer.

   Midshipmen were even given the opportunity to talk and sit next to former players and current players Nick Swisher, Tommy Lasorda and Bobby Valentine. The midshipmen came prepared in their Dress Blues, wowing every person seeing the presentation. The United States Naval Academy, or the USNA, is located in Annapolis, Maryland, where top students from around the country apply to the vigorous, yet rewarding school. Tuition is free, many life-lessons are learned and after your completion from the academy, you are required to serve either in the Marine Corps or the United States Navy for at least five years.
