Tucson High alumni honored with Cherry Field statue

Posted 04/20/17

A Tucson High graduate and outstanding baseball athlete, Chris Moon retracted his athletic scholarship at the University of Arizona and joined the U.S. Armed Forces. In 2010, he was killed in action in Afghanistan. The life-sized statue at Cherry Field is the result of substantial material and time donations from many businesses and Tucson Unified departments. Many Gold Star families will be among those honored by this monument.
