Some athletes do more than just play the game and earn a paycheck. Some athletes serve their country, the United States, in times of war. Whether they served before their career, after their career, or in the middle of their sports career, these four athletes made a difference by being American Patriots first, and professional athletes second. Every one may know Ted Williams was one of the greatest hitters ever to play baseball. Did you know he also served in the Air Force? Rocky Blier played for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and also served in Viet Nam. Chicago White Soxís Carlos May and Arizona Cardinalís Pat Tillman also served their country. Find out more about these soldier athletes in the informational text.  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award nominee, 2014)
