The T.F. South varsity baseball and softball teams will honor the military and 2000 T.F. South graduate Lance Cpl. Philip J. Martini, who was killed in 2006 while serving in Iraq, on Monday.

The players on both teams will be wearing camouflage jerseys to honor the military and Martini.

The softball team hosts Crete-Monee at 4:30 p.m. and the baseball team hosts Bremen at the same time. Both programs elected to collect donations and play a game in memory of  Martini. Three years after his graduation, he and two friends, John Aylmer and Ryan Hemsley, decided to join the U.S. Marine Corps. Martini was killed in action by a sniper while on patrol in Al-Anbar Province, Iraq on April 8, 2006. That tour was the 25-year-old's second deployment during the Iraq War.

Alymer will throw out the first pitch at the baseball game, and Hensleyat the softball game.

The Lance Corporal Philip J. Martini Foundation has been created to benefit various marine-related charities. The Foundation has planted in Winterhoff Park with a plaque in his memory.

In a friendly competition to raise funds to donate to this cause, the softball and baseball teams will battle it out to see who can raise the most money.

To honor our military and Philip Martini, the boys will wear a camouflage jersey for this afternoon’s game.

The players are also selling non-camo T-Shirts honoring the Philip J. Martini Foundation. The T-shirts are $5 and all proceeds will be given to the Philip J. Martini Foundation.
