The 2011 Road to Ground Zero Flag tour for the U.S. Military All-Stars traveling baseball team will run through the Perfect Game Collegiate Baseball League in the coming days. The U.S. Military All-Stars are scheduled to play the Amsterdam Mohawks at Shuttleworth Park on Sun., July 24, at 7:00 p.m. The following evening, the military team will travel to Colburn Park in Newark to face off with the Newark Pilots at 7:05 p.m.

Fans at both Shuttleworth Park and Colburn Park will have the opportunity to honor, view, take photos with and touch the Ground Zero flag. According to the U.S. Military All-Stars web site, "the flag was on site when President George W. Bush delivered his famous 'Bullhorn Speech' following the Sept. 11 attacks. Over the past decade, the Ground Zero Flag has been presented to thousands of heroes in ceremonies from Irag to Afghanistan and back.

The Road to Ground Zero Flag tour began on New Years' day and has crisscrossed the country through the year. The tour will end on Sept. 11 at Ground Zero on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.

The U.S. Military All-Stars baseball team, founded in 1990, competes in around 100 games annually against teams of all different skill levels and conducts over 350 appearances to benefit Veterans and Youth charities. The team is comprised of Active Duty, Reserves and Veterans who participate while they are off-duty and cover their own expenses. The roster includes players from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines. The All-Stars have competed in eight countries and 45 states.

Other summer collegiate league teams that are part of the Road to Ground Zero Flag tour include the St. Joseph Mustangs of the MINK League, the Morehead City Marlins of the Coastal Plain League and the LaCrosse Loggers of the Northwoods League.
