Basking Ridge Cub Scouts Part of Somerset Patriots 9/11 Ceremony

Minor league baseball team holds pre-game ceremony to mark 10-year anniversary of attacks, with participation from area scouts.

TD Bank Park honored the heroes and families of 9/11 victims with a pre-game ceremony Sunday that featured 3,000 flags in the shape of a heart in front of the building and on field activities.

The event began with an introduction by Board of Freeholders Director Robert Zaborowski. He was followed by a video and music montage displayed on the large screen in the ballpark prior to the Somerset Patriots' doubeheader against the York Revolution.

More than 300 cub, boy and girl scouts from throughout New Jersey were invited to stand on the first and third base lines while area firefighters held a large American flag over the pitcher's mound as Isabelle Stein sang the Star Spangled Banner.
