Only in minor league baseball could you find an event titled “Salute to Bacon Night.” On July 13, the Norfolk Tides - the Orioles' Triple-A team - are attempting to set the record for largest BLT ever created as part of this bacon-themed night. The sandwich is going to be more than 300 feet in length, topping the record of 224 feet and 3 inches that was set last year in Missouri. The sandwich won't go to waste, though. Slices of it will be for sale throughout the game, with all proceeds going towards the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia.

THEIR average age was 31. They were skilled craftsmen. Many had wives and children. Many more had been employed at high wages in shipyards and war plants. And few were subject to the draft.

They were steam fitters and lumberjacks, surveyers, welders, demolition men, machinists, plumbers, electricians, longshoremen, carpenters and road graders.
