When the Barbe and Sulphur ladies softball team get together on the diamond, it's always good. But when the two teams meet Thursday in Lake Charles, it'll be something even more special. It'll be a military appreciation game, honoring veterans from all over southwest Louisiana.
"We had talked about it," said catcher Lakeyn Fontenot. "We had seen some other high schools do it around the state and we thought it was a really cool idea. So our coach brought it up to us and we loved the idea, so we're really excited."
"We always love playing Sulphur," said shortstop Taylor Goree. "It's always a good game. Always a fun game to play. Also the pitcher's going to play with us next year in college, so it's a fun day to battle for her."
Both teams will be wearing special camouflage jerseys and there will be a special presentation of the colors along with military static displays. The Marines and National Guard will also be there.
"It makes me feel good because I personally feel like we're showing appreciation for everything they do for us," said Brittany Calbert. "There's no limit to what they do for us, so this is just something small we do to show our appreciation to them."
The Barbe ladies are hoping the public will not only turn out for a good game with Sulphur, but to show their support for our veterans.
"Hopefully, the community realizes just how much the veterans really do for us," said pitcher Sara Corbello. "We honor them on Veterans Day, but this is just something to let them really know we are grateful for everything they do for us."
The Military Appreciation game will be held Thursday, March 22 at 4 p.m. on the Barbe High softball diamond.
