Fourth of July Fireworks!

Fourth of July Fireworks!

Former head athletic trainer Dr. David Yeo, professor emeritus at Eastern, entertains the crowd of 5,176 on the Fourth of July with a heartfelt rendition of The Star Spangled Banner at Senator Thomas  J. Dodd Memorial Stadium in Norwich prior to the Connecticut Tigers' game against the Vermont Lake Monsters. Dodd Stadium is the home of the Detroit Tigers' Class A short-season New York-Penn League minor league affiliate.  Yeo, a member of the Eastern Athletics Alumni Hall of Fame, was invited to perform by Lee Walter '99, current business development manager for the Tigers, who is Eastern's former event staff manager and long-time public address announcer.
