Aside from the great on-field action, there will also be kids games, local business vendors, exhibits, food trucks, 50/50 drawing, and a car show.

Proceeds raised from the event will benefit the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team Annual Amputee Kids Camp. During the week-long camp, the players show children that “Life Without a Limb is Limitless.”

The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team is comprised of young, competitive, athletic veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs.

The team includes individuals with a variety of amputations — of the arm, above the knee, below the knee, bilateral below knee, and foot.

The WWAST is always looking for Active Duty Military Personnel and Veterans with amputations to try out and potentially become part of our team.
