TribLIVE Sports Videos
The Belle Vernon baseball team will hold its third annual Military Appreciation Night on Tuesday, when the Leopards host South Park at 7 p.m. at John DiVirgilio Sports Complex.
All active, nonactive and retired personnel from the Mon Valley are invited to join the team for an evening of recognition and appreciation.
The tradition originated in 2012 as a way to honor Lt. Col. Tom Ferita, father of then-center fielder Adam Ferita. Last year, the team hosted 2001 BVA graduate Capt. Eric McElvenny as the guest of honor.
