Join for a special Veterans Day program as we honor those who have served our country. In this virtual program, we will learn about former major leaguer Chuck Goggin and his service in the U.S. Marines during the Vietnam War. Prior to making the major leagues, Chuck won the Purple Heart and Bronze Star for his service.
Goggin will also discuss his baseball career, including earning his first major league hit as part of the Pirates' line up the same day Roberto Clemente tallied his 3,000th hit.
This program is free, but registration is required.
