UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS -- The Illinois baseball team is gearing up to honor veterans this weekend. Sunday is the second Annual Honor and Serve Game. 

Before taking the field, they'll honor Purple Heart recipients with the color guard. Then during the game, they'll serve the community with a silent auction. Up for grabs, their one-of-a-kind American themed jerseys. Winners of the auction will get to take the jerseys right off the players' backs.

Donations will go towards Roundhouse. It's a shelter for homeless and runaway teens.
