Washington Nationals All-Star Pitcher Sean Doolittle and his wife Eireann Dolan have never shied away from standing up for what they believe in. Since both come from Military families, Veterans are a huge focus. They have participated in California’s Operation Finally Home, which builds homes for wounded Veterans. They also support Swords to Ploughshares, an organization devoted to helping Veterans with housing and employment. Doolittle’s father is a retired Air Force Veteran, and another family member, the late Jimmy Doolittle led the famous bombing raid on Tokyo in 1942. Sean is also an active participant in the Nats on Base initiative — a program aimed at providing year-round experiences for Service Members and their families living in the greater Washington area. For example, a strong proponent of reading and particularly of championing young readers, Sean held a book reading of “Where the Wild Things Are” this summer for children from local Military bases.
