Come out to support a great cause and see the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team (WWAST) play in a celebrity softball game versus a team of former and current Major League Baseball players at Florida International University (FIU) Baseball Stadium on Friday, December 11, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. The WWAST is comprised of competitive, athletic veterans and active-duty soldiers who have lost limbs post-9/11, while serving their country in the military/war. The WWAST represents some of our nation's bravest and most determined heroes, soldiers, and veterans. These men have sustained severe injuries resulting in amputation, and through extensive rehabilitation, have become competitive athletes again. They play against able-bodied teams in exhibition games across the country and their armor now includes prosthetic legs and arms, along with extreme perseverance and attitude.
Playing against the WWAST are:
Jose Fernandez (Miami Marlins) , Mike Lowell (Miami Marlins/Boston Red Sox), Carl Pavano (Miami Marlins/New York Yankees), Orlando 'El Duque' Hernandez (New York Yankees/New York Mets), Placido Polanco (Miami Marlins/St. Louis Cardinals) , Eli Marrero (St. Louis Cardinals/New York Mets) , Shannon Stewart (Toronto Blue Jays), Alex Fernandez (Miami Marlins/Chicago White Sox), Cliff Floyd (Montreal Expos/San Diego Padres), Rondell White (Montreal Expos/Minnesota Twins), Juan Alvarez (Miami Marlins/Anaheim Angels), Curtis Pride (Montreal Expos/Anaheim Angels), Carlos Castillo (Chicago White Sox/Boston Red Sox), Gus Gandarillas (Milwaukee Brewers), Carlos Chantres (Chicago White Sox)
