The Bloomington Bobcats baseball team will play an exhibition game Saturday against the U.S. Military All-Stars.

The 6 p.m. contest at Illinois State's Duffy Bass Field is part of the "Red, White and Blue Tour" for the Military All-Stars, a team composed of players representing the joint armed forces and first responders.

The All-Stars wear camouflage uniforms with historical references to all branches of the military and first responders. Included is a bright yellow ribbon in the shape of an "S" to signify "SUPPORT for our TROOPS."

There is a choreographed pregame ceremony beginning at 5 p.m. that includes passing the American flag and the walk of honor.

The Bobcats, who play in the Midwest Collegiate League, will honor area military veterans as well. Admission is $10.
