FOX Sports will honor the victims of the Moore, Oklahoma tornado with special features that
will run across a variety of FOX Sports networks beginning Thursday, July 4th
The City of Moore was hit by a devastating tornado on May 20 that took the lives of 24 people
and injured hundreds.
The features, which will be themed “The American Way,” will make their debut in the pregame
shows of more than a dozen Major League Baseball telecasts produced by FOX Sports
regional networks on Independence Day. The features will then continue to run across FOX
Sports properties through the weekend, including the FOX Saturday Baseball Game of the
Week on July 6, as well as during programming on SPEED, FUEL TV, and FOX Soccer.
“The American Way” showcases those who reached out to their fellow Americans and examines
how communities far from Moore, Oklahoma used their love for baseball and softball to help
Oklahoma recover, rebuild, and remember those who were lost.
The outpouring of support depicted in “The American Way” is best symbolized in the efforts to
memorialize Sydney Angle, the nine year old who tragically lost her life inside the Plaza
Towers Elementary School along with six other children when the tornado struck. Sydney was
a star player on her softball team, and her story has drawn attention from baseball and softball
communities across the country.
