Opening Ceremonies Saturday April 14th 9:00AM Gather 9:15AM Start
EPAA is honored and proud to announce Sgt. John LaGiglia as he returns to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. John was an EPAA All-Star on the State Championship 1994 Team.
Here is the letter from his nephew Liam O’Mahony and current Minor League player who will catch the first pitch.
I was hoping that you could let my uncle, Sgt. John LaGiglia, throw the first pitch at opening day at EPAA this year. To let you know, his EPAA All-Star team was State Champions in 1994. John can sometimes still be seen sporting his All-Star jersey!
John went to St. John Fisher and Brother Rice before enlisting in the Army Reserves. John has served our country by completing 3 tours of duty, 2 to Iran and most recently to Afghanistan. He returned just before Christmas to surprise his family.
John loves the game of baseball, and loves EPAA. It would mean a great deal to me, and our family, if EPAA could honor John by having him throw out the first pitch of the 2012 season!
Thank You !
