FORT BRAGG, NC – A historical first-ever in history moment occurred on Sunday evening when the Miami Marlins and the Atlanta Braves played a professional baseball game on site at Fort Bragg, NC. This marked the first professional sporting event ever to be held on an active military installation.
ESPN reported on the activities before and during Sunday’s game between the Miami Marlins and the Atlanta Braves that was put on by Major League Baseball and the MLBPA to honor members of the United States’ armed forces. It was a first, because no pro sports game had ever before been hosted at a U.S. military installation. And to bring baseball to the servicemen and servicewomen and their families is a privilege for the game.
