For Love Of The Game

Every professional sports organization finds ways to involve themselves in their communities. The Washington Nationals are no different, but there is one particular cause that the team has taken up over the last couple of years which stands out above the rest.

Last September, the Nationals hosted the inaugural Wounded Warrior Amputee Celebrity Softball Classic in the District. This spring, the Washington Nationals are excited to host the second annual Wounded Warrior Amputee Celebrity Softball Classic following the Nationals-Red Sox exhibition game at Nationals Park on April 3. This special post-game event is free and open to any fans with a valid ticket for the 3:05 exhibition game.

The softball team, which is comprised of retired and active duty service members who have lost limbs while serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, will once again compete against a group of D.C.-area celebrities in hopes of defending the title they handily earned in last year’s game.  Using the latest in prosthetic technology, these extraordinary athletes travel around the country playing only able-bodied opponents in an effort to bring attention to the sacrifice and resilience of our military service members.

Fans may purchase tickets through a special ticket link at nationals.com/wwast, nearly two weeks before single game tickets go on sale to the general public on March 8. A portion of the proceeds from each ticket sold though the link will be donated to the softball team. Stay tuned to nationals.com for more details to come.

To see the Wounded Warriors in action this weekend in Viera, check out the video below. For more information about the project and to donate to the cause, please visit http://www.woundedwarrioramputeesoftballteam.org/ .
