San Bernardino, CA- The Inland Empire 66ers Professional Baseball Club announced on Thursday that it will host a public candlelight vigil at 6 pm to honor the victims of Wednesday’s shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino. The gates to San Manuel Stadium will open at 5:00 pm. The vigil is being held in conjunction with the City of San Bernardino as well as the San Bernardino Police and Fire Departments.
All are welcome at the event. Civic leaders will address the attendees and begin the process of remembering the victims, their families and our entire community. The event will also serve as an opportunity to recognize the first responders that serve and protect our region.
“Our community has been put in unfamiliar territory because of this terrible tragedy,” Inland Empire 66ers General Manager Joe Hudson said. “We know that our ballpark is a community gathering place and that is what we need now. We need somewhere that all of us can come together and grieve for the senseless loss of life and assault on our home.”
Attendees are recommended to enter San Manuel Stadium’s parking facility through the G Street entrance. Media members wishing to be on premise can arrive beginning at 3:30 pm and should call (909) 888-9922 for more information
