Chris Mathew to Play Ball & Celebrate Peace Corps Night at RFK Stadium

Recommended Posts

Washington, D.C. September 14, 2006 – It’s Peace Corps Night at RFK Stadium! Before the Washington Nationals play the Atlanta Braves on Tuesday, September 19, 2006, returned Peace Corps volunteers and agency staff will participate in a pre-game ceremony and a Parade of Nations, featuring flags from all 75 current Peace Corps countries.


Following the parade, returned Peace Corps volunteer and host of MSNBC’s Hardball, Chris Matthews, is in the lineup to throw out the first pitch. Chris, who served in Swaziland, 1968-70, says his Peace Corps experience changed his life forever.


Peace Corps Night will also commemorate forty-five years of service to the global community. The executive order establishing the Peace Corps was signed on March 1, 1961, and the legislation formally creating the agency was signed into public law (P.L. 87-293) on September 22, 1961.
