2017 Nominee – Mike Dunn
Team: Colorado Rockies
Left-handed pitcher Mike Dunn, in his first season as a member of the Colorado Rockies, has continued a program he established in 2013 as a member of the Miami Marlins. Mike will host individuals and families with military ties at select Monday home games. Dunn first hosted military guests on Monday, April 10, and will do so once again on Monday, April 24. He will host guests for a total of eight games this season.
Mike provides each military guests a game ticket that is loaded with cash to purchase dinner. He also gives each guest a commemorative coin that he designed. The front of the coin is a baseball with a cross. The back of the coin has three meaningful words – God – Family – PHIL 4:13. Each guest also receives a Rockies/Dunn tee shirt. Every military guest comes to the field to watch batting practice, and to visit with Mike.
