Patriots Softball

The Patriots Softball Team brings together active duty and veteran Soldiers, Sailors, Marines, and Airmen from various military installations throughout the nation to come together in a spirit of camaraderie to participate in recreational AND competitive softball. Established in 2015, the softball program has grown from one team of 14 military athletes to 5 teams of more than 70 athletes.

“Playing with the Patriots is an outlet for me to have a good time and meet great people. Having American Freedom Fund as part of the team and supporting us takes away a lot of hardships for some of the guys who wouldn’t be able to be on the team without them. That just makes it even more of a rewarding experience.”

The teams participate in numerous softball tournaments – both civilian and military – in more than 15 states across the nation, including Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Maryland, Virginia and Nevada. Over the past four years, our athletes have consistently fielded two teams to participate at the United States Specialty Sports Association (USSSA) Military World Softball Tournament, placing as high as 9th out of over 60 teams.

The Patriots sports core mission is to bring service members and veterans together to participate in a community of competitive sports, fellowship, and camaraderie in an environment committed to team and family. We want to provide a safe healing place for veterans to be active within the community.

“Having the opportunity to be a part of the Patriots Softball Team has given me the chance to continue to play the game I love as well as meet other veterans and military members in the community. The Patriots have grown into a family and I can honestly say I have forged friendships that go beyond the softball field and will last for many years. I feel very fortunate to be a part of such an amazing organization.”
