San Diego (CBS8) - The San Diego Padres pride themselves on showing appreciation for those who serve our country, but Monday night was a little extra special.
For their duel against the Pittsburgh Pirates those in the military and those who've previously served were treated to free tickets.
In addition, the Padres players requested from management that they be allowed to wear the team's camouflage jerseys, something typically reserved for Sunday home games, to honor the nation's military members who've sacrificed so much in the war on terror and who had something to celebrate in the capture and death of Osama Bin Laden.
As News 8's Craig McKee reports in the above video, Padres players appreciate the chance to honor those who serve.
