Baseball Set for Wounded Warriors Exhibition

CORAL GABLES, Fla. -- The University of Miami baseball team is set to host the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team for a 7 p.m. exhibition contest Sat., Dec. 8 at Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field.

General admission tickets to Saturday's game are available for purchase in person at the UM Ticket office, located at the BankUnited Center. All tickets are priced at $10.

The mission of the WWAST, comprised of young veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs while serving their country in the military, is to raise awareness, through exhibition and celebrity softball games, of the sacrifices and resilience of military personnel, and highlight their ability to rise above any challenge.

The WWAST is comprised of young, competitive, athletic veterans and active duty soldiers who have lost limbs post-9/11, while serving their country in the military. The team includes individuals with a variety of amputations.  Some are still in the service, others are attending college, and some have moved on to new careers.

Pregame festivities to the game will begin at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds from the game, including $10 general admission tickets available at the gate, will go to the Wounded Warriors.
