FORT BRAGG, NC – Baseball parks across the nation were ablaze in red, white and blue last weekend as patriotic fans celebrated the nation’s 240th Independence Day. But Major League Baseball wanted to stage something uniquely special to honor America’s men and women in uniform, and GoVision was there to help. MLB hired Toronto-based BaAM Productions to construct a temporary 12,500-seat ballpark on an abandoned golf course at Fort Bragg, which was the setting for the July 3 game between the Atlanta Braves and Florida Marlins. The Salute-the-Troops game is believed to be the first regular-season Major League game ever played at a military installation.
