WW2 vets never fail to inspire us!

In honor of Memorial Day, a bunch of MLB teams had military personnel come to their stadiums to throw out the first pitch. None were better than 92 year-old World War II veteran, Burke Waldron who threw out the first pitch on Sunday’s Memorial Day game for the Seattle Mariners.

Waldron began his military service in 1943 while serving at Pearl Harbor. He fought in the Saipan and Makin Island invasions. He retired in 1946 as a Petty Officer, 2nd Class.

Despite being 92 years-old, Waldron moved and threw the ball around out there better than most people half his age. He truly is a part of the greatest generation.
