Diamond Notes

What’s more patriotic than baseball in the nation’s capital on the Fourth of July? How about a special In-Game Military Salute with a performance by the legendary Neil Diamond?

Diamond will give a debut performance of his new single “Freedom Song (They’ll Never Take Us Down),” during the Nationals-Brewers game on July 4. The song, which Diamond wrote in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings and a visit to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, is meant as a tribute to the American spirit. The exclusive performance will take place during the Nationals’ traditional In-Game Military Salute in the middle of the third inning.

Nationals fans wanting to catch Diamond’s special performance must have a valid ticket for the game, which is scheduled for July 4 at 11:05 a.m. You can buy tickets by visiting www.nationals.com/tickets, calling 888.632.NATS(6287) or visiting the Nationals Park Main Box Office (Half Street SE and N Street SE).
