Default All Star Game CMOH Ceremony

Was blown away by the Congressional Medal of Honor Ceremony before the All Star game. One of them is a local to me gentleman. Micheal Fitzmaurice grew up here and I hung out with his younger brother for 30+ years until his death a couple years ago.

I was lucky enough to meet Mike several times. He has a statue here at out War Memorial.

Here is a link to his CMOH page and a link to the All Star game ceremony.

Here are a few pics of the memorial/his statue just a few blocks from my house.

T210 Series 3 Ft Worth, looking for low end examples and especially ones with a Y shaped hole punch. I also have some extra T210's for trade.

I missed the ceremony, but heard about it. Terrific move by the MLB. Roberts was apparently big on the players showing their respects to these heroes.
Faith. Family. Country. Baseball. Baseball Cards.

Current Project: Hall of Famers - 1 playing-days/involvement card (if possible) of each.
Progress: 194/323 (60.06%)
