"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: Runs for Warriors 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 high school teams can honor the sacrifice of America’s special operations community and leverage runs scored during selected games in April 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: Runs for Warriors 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. Coaches, players, and programs will also have an opportunity to win prize packages valued over $15,000 containing items donated by top baseball and other companies from across the U.S.A.
