Louisville Slugger Warrior Carlo Adame Heads to Reds Fantasy Camp

By Steve LaMontia, Director of Communications

(Editor's note:  Carlo and the Louisville Slugger Warriors will be participating at this year's 30th anniversary edition of the MSBL World Series in Arizona in October and November.  They will be playing baseball as an entrant in a yet to be determined division and not as a featured softball event.  The Warriors have traveled the world playing baseball in addition to their softball exhibition games.  We look forward to seeing them get down and dirty in the dry heat of Arizona!)   

GOODYEAR, AZ – An active-duty U.S. Army soldier who lost his right leg below the knee while in the military is about to embark on a journey involving America’s favorite pastime. Sergeant First Class Carlo Adame who served in Iraq has defied the odds, and took his love for baseball/softball to a whole new level - playing with a prosthetic leg. Now, Adame will share the field with former major league players and fellow baseball enthusiasts.

Adame was selected and is being sponsored by The Baseball Heaven Alumni Association made up of former Cincinnati Reds Fantasy Camp attendees. The camp will take place at the Reds Spring Training facility in Goodyear, Arizona from January 14-21, 2017.

Adame currently plays for the Louisville Slugger Warriors - a competitive softball team made up of highly decorated U.S. Military Veterans and Active Duty Personnel with physical and invisible wounds. He played for Rancho Bernardo High School in San Diego, when it was ranked the #1 high school baseball team in the country. He then went on to play college baseball at San Diego City College before enlisting in the U.S. Army.

"I love the game, so if I can continue to play and inspire others at the same time then it's definitely a good day. Life throws us all curve balls, but if you can't adjust, then what's the point. My brothers on this team inspire me every time I see them on the field, they help me get better and maintain a positive attitude. The Army has been good to me and I have no regrets," said SFC Adame

Adame is available for interviews this week in person or by phone. If you would like more information on the team, you can visit the Louisville Slugger Warriors Facebook Page:
