(WJBK) -

Major League Baseball and PEOPLE magazine announced the "Tribute for Heroes" campaign, a national initiative that recognizes veterans and military service members.

Detroit Tigers fans are encouraged to visit TributeforHeroes.com to nominate an active or former member of the Armed Forces of the United States or Canada for the chance to represent the Tigers at the 2013 All-Star Game.

Once all the nominations are reviewed, three veterans/military service members per Club (90 finalists) will be selected by MLB, PEOPLE, and a celebrity panel of judges, who will be announced at a later date. Fans will then be encouraged to vote online for their Tigers favorite. All 30 winners, one representing each MLB Club, will be announced on July 10.

The "Tribute For Heroes" campaign will support Welcome Back Veterans, an initiative of Major League Baseball and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, which addresses the needs of veterans after they return from service.
