(WBNG Binghamton) When you go to NYSEG Stadium, you're usually cheering for the home team. But Saturday, there's a few reasons you'll want to cheer for the visiting team.
The Wounded Warriors Softball Amputee Team will take on local police officers Saturday, May 26. The first pitch will be thrown at 5:00 p.m. at NYSEG Stadium.
General Manager and Head Coach Coach David Van Sleet, and third baseman Saul Bosquez slid into our studios to talk more about the Wounded Warriors.
Binghamton is only one of twenty-four stops for these extraordinary men and women.
The Wounded Warriors are all recent veterans.
They served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and suffered severe traumatic injuries that led to amputation.
The team started less than one year ago.
Tickets to Saturday's game are $9 for a grandstand seat, and $11 for a box seat. There are also discounts available.
A ticket to Saturday's game also grants you admission to the evening B-Mets game against the New Hampshire Fishercats.
If you miss their stint in Binghamton, on Sunday, the team heads to Cooperstown to take on Cooperstown Police and Fire Departments. The first pitch will be thrown at 1:00 p.m. at Doubleday Field.
