"America’s Athletes Honoring America’s Heroes Playing America’s Pastime"
Since 1980, over 1,000 special operations warriors gave their lives so that we might be free to pursue passions such as the sport of baseball. When these heroes died, whether in training or on the battlefield, many left behind loved ones, including over 1,100 children.
STRIKE FORCE is a national baseball program created in partnership between Operation Hawkeye, PLEDGE IT, American Baseball Coaches Association, and Special Operations Warrior Foundation (SOWF) through which college varsity and club teams can honor the sacrifice of America’s special operations community and leverage runs, hits, strikeouts, or home runs during designated game(s) or event(s) through Veterans Day of 2017 to raise funds for SOWF, a top-rated nonprofit that supports family members of fallen warriors through college scholarships, family services, and other assistance.
STRIKE FORCE teams receive meaningful recognition, as well as access to Warrior Profiles and Clutch Performance Briefings providing coaches and players with insights from special operators on keys to success on and off the baseball diamond.
