D-backs join MLB's 9/11 remembrance
PHOENIX -- The D-backs joined the rest of Major League Baseball on Tuesday in honoring the victims of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

The organization marked the 11th anniversary of the tragedy with a video tribute and a moment of silence for those who lost their lives on that day and the men and women of the armed forces who have died since in the fight against terrorism.

There was a presentation and recognition of Honor and Remember, an organization dedicated to recognizing soldiers who have lost their lives defending the United States.

The first pitch was thrown out by Rich Bauer from the United Phoenix Firefighters Association, while Brigetta Barrett, a junior at the University of Arizona who won a silver medal in the high jump in the London Olympics, sang the national anthem.
