FAIRFAX, VA (WUSA9) – Some kids with amputations are breaking barriers in Fairfax County, as they pick up the game of softball, despite their disability.
“There’s no such word as can’t,” said 9-year-old Annie Kate Myers, who is missing her right hand.
WASHINGTON — It’s a kids’ softball camp where the coaches are wounded warriors and the children face similar challenges. But this camp is about so much more than just softball.
This is the fifth year the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team has held a softball camp for children ages 8 to 12 who are amputees. This year, 20 kids from across the country attended the weeklong camp at George Mason University in Fairfax.

The Wounded Warriors amputee softball team headed into Raley Field Saturday to take on the Sacramento All-Stars.
KCRA 3 spoke with two of the players, Ben Mitchell and Mike Brown, from the WWAST before the game about their service and recovery process.
