Turning Back Time with America’s Pastime

By Jeff White, Induron Sales Manager

Here at Induron, we are huge baseball fans and very patriotic. Yesterday was Memorial Day, when we honor those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. And tomorrow is another Birmingham event that will honor The Greatest Generation through a baseball game.

The Rickwood Classic is an annual event played in the oldest active baseball stadium in the country – Rickwood Field. Each year, the clock is turned back to the Golden age of baseball to honor the history of the game. The theme this year is from the WWII era. The Birmingham Barons and the Chattanooga Lookouts will don the uniforms of Army and Navy in honor of those who served.

Induron had an opportunity to donate paint to the stadium to ensure it looked its best for the big event. I’m glad we could participate in a small way.

I think a quote by Napoleon most aptly describes those of the WWII generation: “Victory belongs to the most persevering.”  Thank you to all who have served and are serving our country for your sacrifice.

Play Ball and Go Army!!
