On Saturday, July 16, the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) will be playing in Elmira, NY, at 7:00 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.

The Elmira Pioneers Ownership Group are very proud to have these heroes visit our ballpark and the city of Elmira, NY,” said Robbie Nichols, Owner of the Elmira Pioneers. “Thank you to the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team for being a first class organization and being great to work with in the planning of this event. The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Game has been in the planning stages for two years and it is now upon us. The introductions will be emotional, the game will leave you speechless, and the postgame fireworks will put a smile on your face.”
