FOX Sports led a contingent of former MLB greats, current players and announcers, and a selection of FOX Sports Girls on a goodwill trip to U.S. Army Garrison Grafenwoehr in Germany recently. Grafenwoehr is one of the Army’s premier training bases in the world, and trip attendees trained with the soldiers -– including morning physical training, as well as various combat simulations. The MLB participants conducted a youth baseball clinic, visited schools on base, and joined solders in a competitive game of wiffle ball.
LBS will be bringing you videos from FOX Sports’ Spring Training to the Troops trip over the next few weeks, so keep your eye out for that. In the video seen above, former Angels great Tim Salmon squares off against FOX Sports Girl Liddy, who actually plunks him during the wiffle ball game.
The wiffle game was the marquee event from the trip. The game paired Major League Baseball players such as David Justice, Heath Bell, Wade Boggs and the FOX Sports Girls with soldiers from the 709th Military Police Battalion and the 172nd Infantry Brigade.Google+
