Wounded Warrior Softball Team plays for a cause
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) - The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team playing for a cause.
The team played a double header on Saturday against the military all-stars from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and the Dayton Legends at Wright State University’s Nischwitz Stadium.
The games were fundraisers for the new Fisher House being built on the grounds of the Dayton VA Medical Center and Honor Flight Dayton.
The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team is made up of veterans who were injured in the line of duty.
“You can overcome adversity and you don’t have to be defined by your circumstance,” said Wounded Warrior Softball Team member Danielle Green. “Life does move forward.”
The goal of the softball team is to educate and inspire others, while enhancing the well-being of Wounded Warrior Amputees.
“It’s a whole new generation. Not like Vietnam vets. Society has embraced us,” said Green. “It's nice going city to city to show what overcoming adversity is all about.”
The games were just for exhibition, but the military all-stars from Wright-Patterson Air Force Base won the first game 13 to 12.
The Wounded Warriors bounced back in the second game and beat the Dayton Legends 18 to 16.
