Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball game raises money for local veterans


MANCHESTER- Hit after hit, the Wounded Warrior Amputee softball team dominated in a charity game on Saturday.

Their motto is "life without a limb is limitless." It’s a mantra they're passing on to the younger generation.

Manchester Army veteran Saul Bosquez said he was thrilled to play in his hometown.

“The guys we get to play against are all able-bodied guys. All of us arms, legs some guys missing two legs. For us to go out there and play, and play competitively, and on a consistent basis is all we can ever ask for,” Bosquez said.

The Wounded Warriors were taking on local celebrities including NH1's Charlie Sherman and Cy Young Award winner Chris Carpenter, all playing to raise money for Veterans Count.

“We’re helping the men and women who do what they do to let us live our everyday lives free,” Carpenter said.

Since 2007, more than $2 million in donations to Veterans Count have helped thousands of local veterans with suicide prevention, employment, homelessness and substance abuse treatment.

The weekend-long event was intended to bring the community together to honor and support those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.
