The “Home Run Community Heroes Starting Nine” will be chosen through a month-long fan nomination process. 

The ‘Cats and American National Insurance are encouraging fans to nominate personnel from military, law enforcement, firefighter/EMS agencies, non-profit organizations, as well as teachers, volunteers, children and everyday people that have helped make a positive impact within the Capital Region.

The Home Run Community Heroes Starting Nine will also be treated to a luxury suite as guests of American National Insurance, with complimentary food and beverage.

“American National Insurance is proud to partner with the Tri-City ValleyCats in honoring heroes who go above and beyond in making our community a wonderful place to live,” said Matt Ostiguy, Executive Vice President of P&C Product and Pricing, American National Insurance.
