Baseball Team Participates in 9/11 Tribute

In remembrance of the events of 9/11, the Lindale Eagle Baseball team participated in a tribute workout today at 6 a.m. The 2001 meter run represents the year the attack took place. The 11 reps of 9 exercises represents the date, 9/11. The 125lb thrusters represent the number of deaths at the Pentagon. The 175lb power clean symbolizes the AA Flight 175 that hit the south tower. The 170lb deadlift is symbolic of Flight 77 and Flight 93 combined, and the 110lb push jerk represents the number of floors in each tower of the World Trade Center.
