Billy Massingale  CLEVELAND, TN
for some of us returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is hard to find enjoyment in life and adjust back into te real world.  
   I myself am a 5 tour combat Vet that struggled (heavily) when I returned home.  I found three things that saved me
1. God
2. Family
3. Baseball
   Ive played/coached/managed an 18 and up team since Ive returned from my last deployment in 2010. Every year since, ive contacted other Veterans to get them to come out.  Its interesting with varying talent levels but its a bond and brotherhood and we get to play baseball.  It costs 220 dollars per player(based off a 20 man roster) and then there are bats, gear and jerseys to buy.  
Any funding would be greatly help offset the costs of playing a sport we not only love, but it could provide a chance for someone to play that might not be able to afford it. 
Thank you in advance for anyone that can help
also, you can add me on facebook to follow our team this season, last year we finished third!!
