SEATTLE -- As ballparks across the nation celebrate the Fourth of July, Safeco Field is no different. Along with other Major League clubs, both the Mariners and Orioles donned baseball caps with camouflaged-filled logos on Wednesday.
With the 30 Major League teams' flags replaced by American flags in the outfield and a large flag spread across the outfield by the 593rd Special Troops Battalion, U.S. Army Sergeant Corrin Campbell sang the national anthem.
Campbell has been in the U.S. Army for five years, but has also led a double life as a singer. She has performed for troops in Iraq and opened for Ted Nugent and Toby Keith on their USO tour through Baghdad.
"It's a remarkable gathering of all of us," Campbell said. "No matter where we stand politically, socially, economically, we all come together and remember that 267 years ago or whatever it was, we were able to decide a conscious way to live our lives."
