The Albuquerque Isotopes will honor America on July 4th and help raise funds for Welcome Back Veterans.

Welcome Back Veterans is an organization dedicated to addressing the ongoing needs of military personnel and their families, by wearing a specially designed “Stars & Stripes” cap. Players will wear the caps during their Fourth of July game against the Las Vegas 51s. The caps will also be sold in the Isotopes Pro Shop on Friday.

100 percent of the proceeds from cap sales will be donated by Minor League Baseball and Major League Baseball Properties to Welcome Back Veterans as part of its contribution to the program.

A total of 113 Minor League teams will wear the specialty caps as part of the fundraising and awareness initiative.

Berm tickets for Friday night’s game are on sale for $9 at Isotopes Park Box Office and at Ticketmaster outlets. Fans are encouraged to act fast as availability of Berm Seating is limited for the Independence Day game.

The Fourth of July post-game fireworks will be presented by US Bank weather permitting.
