ST. LOUIS - In a military family, everyone makes sacrifices, even the kids.

About 100 local military children got a special treat at Busch Stadium Friday afternoon. The group Little Patriots Embraced honored them during the Hitting for Heroes event.

Some of the kids have lost parents to war, others have never had a chance to sit in a baseball stadium. Each got a stuffed animal from build a bear, as well.

Hitting for Heroes helps raise money to support programs that assist military children.
