Pirates honor military on Independence Day
In celebration of Independence Day, the Pirates honored our nation's military during the third of their four-game set against the Houston Astros on Wednesday. It's Military Appreciation Day at PNC Park, and the club made up to four tickets available to each veteran and active member of the Armed Forces prior to the game's first pitch at 1:35 p.m. ET.

Also, injured Pirates pitcher Charlie Morton and his wife Cindy are hosting 40 military members and their families from Operation Troop Appreciation and Wounded Warriors during the game. Along with their tickets, the soldiers received a few Pirates gifts from Charlie and Cindy for their service to our country.
