WHAT: Seattle University coaches and staff will take on the national Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team in a friendly battle on the field this Sunday. The WWAST represents our nation’s most unwavering heroes and veterans who tour the country bringing their bravery and optimism.  

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 combat. The WWAST includes veterans with a variety of amputations of the arm, above knee, below knee, bilateral below knee and foot.    

SU Head Basketball Coach Cameron Dollar is on the roster along with other staff members. The team will be coached by SU Head Softball Coach Dan Powers, who is also rumored to be pitching.  

“It’s our honor to partner with such a courageous and inspirational group of guys who are still making a difference in the world, despite the obstacles they’ve encountered,” said Powers. “We look forward to putting on a fun event and hope the Seattle community will come support both teams as they show off their skills on the field.”   

The mission of the WWAST 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.    

Admission is free, donations for WWAST will be accepted.
