Wounded Warriers "Play Ball" in Elmira
Reston, VA – On Saturday, July 21st, the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) will be playing in Elmira, NY, at 7:05 PM at Dunn Field, home of the Elmira Pioneers.
"It is very exciting to be playing in Elmira," said Dennis Wince, WWAST Executive Director and US Army Retired Veteran. "Working with the event organizer, we have seen firsthand the strong pride that this area displays for military personnel and Wounded Warriors and it is very gratifying to see the recognition for those that have served our country."
The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team is a charitable organization whose mission is to inspire and educate others while enhancing the health and welfare of wounded warrior amputees. This organization is a perfect example of how a positive attitude, commitment, dedication and perseverance allow these warriors to overcome any obstacle. The WWAST is comprised of athletic amputee veterans and active duty servicemen and women who travel the country playing abled-bodied teams in competitive, celebrity and exhibition softball games.
"First we must thank Hilliard Corporation and Ziff Law Firm for being the major sponsors of this event, without great corporate partners, these special events and Elmira Pioneers Baseball would not be possible" stated owner Nellie Nichols.
"The Elmira Pioneers organization is proud to work with the WWAST, a first class organization. It is a honor for us to be bringing them back to Elmira. The game in 2016 was a complete sell out, so fans will want to make sure to purchase their tickets early", stated owner Robbie Nichols.
