Memorial Day

Eddie Grant, infielder for a variety of teams, served the US Army during the first World War. He enlisted and then became a Captain. He was involved in the Meuse-Argonne offensive where he lost his life.

Please take a moment to remember Eddie Grant, both for his baseball career, but more importantly for the sacrifice that he made on the battlefield.

Then remember the other service men and women that also lost their lives during their time in the military.
