APPLETON (WLUK) -- Fox Cities Stadium has welcomed the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team to play in a double header on Sunday, September 4th.

Members of the WWAST will be competing against a local team, Screwballs, at 10:30 a.m. and will play again at 12:30 p.m. against a team of local celebrities.

FOX 11's Lauren Kalil was live inside the stadium giving us a preview of the double header.

The WWAST is made up of brave men and women, both veterans and active duty soldiers, from all service branches, who have sustained injuries resulting in amputation.

Through extensive rehabilitation, they have become competitive athletes again, playing against able-bodied teams in competitive, celebrity, and exhibition games across the country.
