Wounded Warrior Charity Softball Game

On May 30, 2015 the New Jersey Amateur Baseball League will welcome the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team to NJ for 2 charity softball games to benefit their organization and some local charitable organizations. 

We welcome all to attend, no admission to come watch. We will be updating this page daily as new additions become confirmed. Our team will begin to pop up here as well, with many veterans joining us on the field. 

Should be an incredible event, and very inspiring.
