BLUEFIELD (WVVA) — The 2019 Appalachian League season is on the books, but Monday, the league’s Executive Awards were announced.

The Bluefield Blue Jays received the 2019 Patriot Award, given to the club who shows “outstanding support and engagement with the Armed Forces and their veterans.”

The league specifically noted the Jays’ Military Appreciation Night on July 6, 2019. The club hosted 373 veterans and their families that night, providing admission, food and crisis intervention materials.

Bluefield will serve as the league’s nominee for Minor League Baseball’s Charles K. Murphy Award.
