Major League Baseball and PEOPLE magazine today announced the 30 winners of the "Tribute for Heroes" campaign, a national initiative that recognizes veterans and military service members and which builds upon both organizations' commitment to honoring our country's heroes.
Joseph Carroll of Blue Ash, Ohio has been selected by fans to represent the Cincinnati Reds at the 2013 All-Star Game.
As soon as he could after 9/11, Joe Carroll joined the military where he served as an Army Ranger. After Joe returned home to Cincinnati, he founded Helping Hands of Cincinnati, a non-profit that helps families fight the financial burdens of cancer. He came up with the idea after his mother, brother, and many family friends were diagnosed with the disease. HHoC helps families facing cancer meet financial obligations that insurance typically doesn't cover, including travel and living expenses, physical and psychotherapy costs, deductibles, and co-insurance payments. Joe also volunteers his time with the American Cancer Society.
Joe will join one winner representing each of the 30 MLB Clubs to be included in All-Star Week festivities. The winners also will attend and be honored during the pre-game ceremony leading up to the 2013 All-Star Game at Citi Field July 16th on FOX beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Fans nationwide cast their votes at TributeForHeroes.com to select 30 winners from a pool of 90 finalists.
