Santa Fe native and Medal of Honor recipient Leroy Petry was honored at Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game, Tuesday night. 

Petry lost his right hand in Afghanistan in 2008 after picking up a live grenade and tossing it away to save the lives of his fellow soldiers. 

President Obama awarded him the highest military honor in 2011, and Tuesday night he stood alongside his fellow honorees to be recognized for his service.
