Dear American Patriot Program Members,


Thank you for your awesome support. 


We have been very busy with the current TAPP NHL Award season but we are gearing up for the 2011 MLB, MiLB, and Independent League- Award season.


We are pleased to announce that; Phoenix Bat Company; Hoosier Bat Company, and Trinity Bat Company will be crafting the American Patriot Baseball Bat Award throughout the 2011 'Operation Fields of Green' MLB Award season.


Thank you Seth and Charlie from Phoenix; Dave and Debbie Cook from Hoosier; and the McKee family from Trinity Bat Company- for stepping up to craft the beautiful award.


TAPP also thanks Steve at Insider Bat and Bryan at Hitting World for their support.


We are also thrilled to announce that TAPP has partnered with American Airlines.  All American Patriot Award recipients will be receiving two free round trip tickets courtesy of American Airlines.  Here are some other very special items that American Patriot Award recipients will be receiving.

Coming from the UK and making the US my home, I thank God for all the service people who keep us safe and make the world a better place.
We can only imagine a country that is ruled by injustice and tyranny - be thankful we have a wonderful country and true values. Our servicemen & women make our world what it is, thier courage and sacrifice on a daily basis makes me proud to be part of the human race where creed or color doesn't matter when protecting the innocent and the oppressed.
Without them our lives as we know it would be so very different.
Thank you America!

As a firefighter I thank God every day that there are men and women that have the courage to sacrifice alittle of their selves to serve and protect others there is no greater love than that. I am only one person, I am honored to join this cause.

I know that one of the things I always make it a point to do, is to tell a service man or woman how much I appriciate the sacrifice that these soldiers make. This sounds like a great program.

This is a great program! Phoenix Bats has been involved for quite a while and it has been an honor.
