Padres to conduct Military Spouse Appreciation Day, equipment drive

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The San Diego Padres will conduct Military Spouse Appreciation Day at Sunday's game against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Petco Park, part of the team's full season of Sunday military salutes.

Blue Star Families, a nonprofit organization which supports and connects military families, and Family Readiness Group representatives from the USS Dewey will be among the organizations and individuals recognized in pregame ceremonies.

Kendra Mulherin, wife of Marine Corps Sgt. Robert David Mulherin, will throw the ceremonial first pitch. Caroline Dale, whose husband Joseph is deployed in the Navy, will perform "God Bless America" before the seventh inning stretch.

As with all Sunday games at Petco Park, the Padres will wear their Marine digital camouflage uniforms.

Fans are encouraged to bring their used baseball equipment, especially balls and gloves, to donate to Kids Gear for Baseball's annual collection drive.

Kids Gear for Baseball, a San Diego-area nonprofit organization run by a group of high school students, collects equipment and donates it directly to schools, organizations, parks and recreation centers. It will receive a $5,000 equipment grant from the Baseball Tomorrow Fund during a pregame ceremony.
