Anaheim Fire & Rescue displays American flag on infield, as players, fans reflect at Angel Stadium
By Austin Laymance
ANAHEIM -- There were reminders all over Angel Stadium that Sunday was a time to remember the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.
The Anaheim Fire & Rescue unfurled a large American flag on the infield after marching from first to second base before the series finale between the Angels and Rangers, won by Los Angeles, 3-2. There was a moment of silence and the presence of 100 members of the United States armed services along the infield dirt.
The video scoreboards in left and right field displayed a special Major League Baseball logo, complete with a red, white and blue ribbon and the phrase: "We Shall Not Forget." Special lineup cards and base jewels were used, and the caps of both teams had an American flag stitched on one side.
