High Class A Salem announced today that the club will continue to pay respects to fallen Virginia Tech students and faculty for the remainder of the 2007 season.
Salem Memorial Baseball Stadium is located just 26 miles from the Hokies’ campus, and a large part of the team’s fan base, as well as game staff, has direct ties to the university. Avalanche players will be adding a commemorative Virginia Tech logo to their batting helmets and front office members will wear a VT lapel pin on their gameday uniforms as well.
“We have many current and former gameday staff and interns that either go to Tech, went to tech or have family at Tech,” Avalanche general manager John Katz said. “This is our way to quietly show our support for them as they work through this difficult time.”
