  • Band Of Brothers Spring Softball Opening Ceremonies Welcomes S.M.P.D.


    Santa Maria, CA: Please join the Band of Brothers as they host their Softball Opening Ceremonies on Friday, March 01, 2019, at 6:00 pm, at the James Hagerman Softball Complex, Field 1.

    Band of Brothers is a group of military veterans from all branches. In addition to softball, they also have a pool league at the Santa Maria Billiard Lounge, and also a bowling league at Rancho Bowl on Sunday nights. The group also gets involved in community events and causes, most recently collecting cold weather items to donate to the Salvation Army. They also partner with law enforcement and crisis teams to fight depression and prevent veteran suicide.

    The Spring Softball Opening Ceremonies will be welcoming a brand new team, this year, comprised of members of the Santa Maria Police Department. The evening ceremonies will also involve a color guard, a national anthem singer, player awards, and a special guest will be throwing the first pitch. It is a free, family-friendly event open to the public. Fans of the Band of Brothers, S.M.P.D.,  softball, veterans, or the community, in general, are all welcome to come out and cheer them on. 

    “This marks the beginning of expanding Band of Brother's outreach to include first responders,” said Stephanie Tracy, Community Relations Manager of Band of Brothers.

    ECHO Group, a non-profit, contributes funding and support to the Band of Brothers. ECHO Group has also created a home to several veterans in our community, that may otherwise be homeless, via Camp Flores.

    The night will be full of camaraderie and competitive fun. Whether you’re a softball fan, a Band of Brothers supporter, a veteran, or a civilian, you don’t want to miss this event!
