Today marks the 38th anniversary of the day Chicago Cubs outfielder Rick Monday ran across the outfield grass at Dodger Stadium to rescue an American Flag from being burned by protesters.
Monday's amazing dash to save that flag from being burned by a father and young son has resonated with baseball fans and military service members over the decades.
Monday served in the military before his big league career, and has been honored over the past decades since that day in 1976.
Rick Monday became an American Hero that day.
Rick Monday will tell you he's not the hero, that the real hero's are the great men and women of our great country.
God Bless you Rick Monday, and God Bless our awesome military members who risk their lives to keep us safe.
