They are a softball team like you’ve never seen. Nearly twenty veterans of the post-9/11 era have come together to form WWAST; the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team. As their name suggests, everyone on the team was injured in the line of duty and wears prosthesis of some sort. Their mission: “to raise awareness, through exhibition and celebrity softball games, of the sacrifices and resilience of our military, and highlight their ability to rise above any challenge.”
This remarkable team that has been featured on HBO, ESPN, CBS Evening News, and Sports Illustrated, just to name a few. Theirs is a mission of a world with limits does not have to be limited. They play on weekends all over the country spreading their message. The highlight of their year is their annual Kids Camp. It was featured on HBO’s Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel (Estimated viewership of over 2 million ).
