More than 80 cadets and 40 members of the West Point Band participated in the opening ceremonies of the American League Championship Series Oct. 16, at Yankee Stadium. The band played the national anthem, while the cadet color guard presented the colors and the rest of the cadets unfurled a 50-yard flag in the outfield before the first pitch. Sgt. 1st Class Mary Kay Messenger sang "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch.
