The Washington Nationals already had Monday scheduled to give free tickets to active duty or retired military personnel for tonight's game against the Giants, but with Sunday night's killing of Osama Bin Laden, the San Diego Padres have decided to follow suit.
The Padres will provide two free tickets to all active, retired and veteran military members for tonight's game against the Pirates. The team will also don its Marine-inspired camouflage jerseys that the team usually wears on Sundays.
The Nationals will also don special uniforms, wearing their "patriotic" blue jerseys with a stars-and-stripes "W" on the chest. This alternate uniform was unveiled this offseason, but will be worn for the first time tonight.
It will certainly be a special time in both places -- and ballparks around the country -- during the national anthem.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
