Presidio of Monterey, Calif. -- Service members from the Defense Language Institute Foreign Language Center were honored by Coca-Cola and the San Francisco Giants during a pre-game presentation at AT&T Park in San Francisco July 21.

A handful of service members were on the field prior to the Giants' game versus the Arizona Diamondbacks and were presented an autographed jersey by Giants' pitcher and past Cy Young Award winner Barry Zito.

Zito, who founded the charity "Strikeouts for Troops" in 2005 in support of service members with war-related injuries and their families, is also involved in multiple other military related non-profit organizations.

In addition, 20 DLIFLC service members not involved in the pre-game ceremony were given tickets to watch the game, which ended with a Giant's loss by a score of 1-3
