Saturday, April 23, the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) will be participating in the second annual ‘Battle of Charleston Harbor’ at the College of Charleston’s Baseball Stadium on Patriot’s Point Rd in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. Beginning at 9:00am, the WWAST will be playing a double-header against a team from Joint Base Charleston and a team of First Responders from Mt. Pleasant and Charleston Police and Fire Fighters. Parking and admission are free to the public.
“Dedicated, resilient, and inspirational are only a few words which describe the players of the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team,” said Patty Coker-Bolt, Charleston Event Committee. “We are so excited to have the team back in Charleston! These men are true heroes and we greatly appreciate their service to our country.”
While they take the field, the team will also be showcasing their new team apparel, sponsored by recent partners, New Balance.
“It is very satisfying to know that the Charleston area is a strong supporter of the military and honors active duty soldiers and Veterans,” said Dennis Wince, WWAST Executive Director and US Army Retired Veteran. “We are very excited to play here for the second year in a row. Working on this venue, we have seen first hand the strong pride that this area of South Carolina displays for military personnel and Wounded Warriors and it is very gratifying to see the recognition for those that have served our country.”
