The Thunderbirds and Massachusetts State Lottery are pleased to continue the Hometown Salute throughout the 2018-19 season.
In proudly supporting all 351 cities and towns in the Commonwealth, the Mass Lottery, in conjunction with the Springfield Thunderbirds, have teamed up to show their appreciation for members of our community who are actively serving or have previously served our country in the armed forces. At every Friday and Sunday home game this season, the Thunderbirds will honor an individual who has gone beyond the call of duty during this Hometown Salute.
New for the 2018-19 season, the American Legion is joining in on the Hometown Salute in conjunction with the Mass Lottery. There will be an exclusive 1/100 challenge coin included as the gift for the Veteran of the Game, with the Thunderbirds logo on one side and the American Legion logo on the other.
