MLB Tribute to Heroes...VOTE for Jon Popovich!

Postby jpop43 » June 9th, 2013, 6:12 am

To All,

A recent promotional union between People Magazine and Major League Baseball geared towards honoring military veterans has entered its final stage and I am fortunate enough to be one of the three remaining nominees with the chance to represent the club of my choosing…the New York Yankees…at the 2013 All Star Game at Citi Field in NY.

I’d be truly grateful if you took a moment to check out the following website to read my biography and place a vote…I wouldn’t mind if you told others about it either ;-) ….

Again, please vote and vote often…..maybe I’ll see you there after all JD!

Thanks,

Jonathan

Many thanks to all of you have checked out the MLB "Tribute for Heroes" contest webpage and placed a vote for me. With two weeks remaining in the public voting period I'd ask that you continue your support and cast another vote or two (or a hundred :wink: ) It would mean an awful lot to me and the work I do here at the Vet Center to have such a platform in which to build future outreach efforts from.

To vote, go to the contest website: http://mlb.mlb.com/tribute/2013/index.jsp

Once there, click on the New York Yankee logo…you will see my picture and bio….just click on the image and VOTE!! You can vote as many times as you like and we hope that you will.

Thank you all so much,
Jonathan

Well, I hope to know the outcome of the contest soon. Although the results will be posted for the public to view on the MLB website on the 10th, I may learn my status before then...don't know for sure. Regardless, I will let everyone know how it went as soon as I hear something.

My thanks to all of you who have been so supportive throughout the contest.

At long last the results are in……

In no small part to your support and commitment to the voting process, I have been selected (http://mlb.mlb.com/tribute/2013/) as the individual veteran that will represent the New York Yankees at the All Star Game as part of the MLB “Tribute for Heroes” contest next week at Citi Field!

I thank each and every one of you who have supported me in this endeavor and took the time to think of me over the past few weeks. I am so very honored, humbled, and excited to be involved with the All Star Game in this way and look forward to reporting on it when I am back in town next week.

It is a real joy to be a part of this hobby community and know that we can count on each other for support in such matters.

Thanks,
Jonathan
