The ceremony was to celebrate the Army's 242nd birthday on June 13, and to have 25 future Soldiers take Oath of Enlistment administered by I Corps Commanding General, Lt. Gen. Gary J. Volesky.

The future Soldiers lined up along the first base and received a standing ovation from both the crowd and the baseball players, after enlisting in the Army.

Immediately following the Oath of Enlistment was a performance of the Star Spangled Banner by the I Corps 56th Army Band. The I Corp's Color Guard was also present to hold the colors along the third base line.

After the fourth inning, Spc. Dazarian Williams, I Corp's Soldier of the Year, was brought out on a red carpet and recognized both in front of the crowd and on the jumbo-tron.

"It was a pretty nerve-racking experience," said Williams. "I never thought I would be in a situation where an entire stadium of people would be focused on me."

Williams is currently preparing for Ranger School, and will attend later this year.
