    Truly the greatest and bravest Americans are those who choose to serve in our Armed Forces.

    Before the 2006 season, a replica of the "Eddie Grant" memorial was placed near an elevator on the left field side of the ballpark, which is visible from outside ATT Park. The original granite monument, which honored the only MLB player killed in WWI, was five feet high and stood in center field of the Polo Grounds at the base of the clubhouse wall.
