It gave him back the thrill of athletic competition. Both he and Leonard Anderson lost limbs in IED attacks. Now they travel the country with their uniforms, bats, and a message.

Ronald Pawuk brought a group of veterans from the Van Zandt Medical Center to see them play. He said it was inspiriing to see these soldiers who lost limbs not give up.
