    (NECN) - It's game on for a good cause Monday night as the national Wounded Warrior amputee softball team takes over Fenway Park to take on first responders who were there to help after the Boston Marathon bombings.

    Two of the wounded warrior players, Saul Bosquez and Todd Reed, are here in studio. Both are veterans and below the knee amputees.

    Saul says to be able to step in the batter’s box at Fenway Park is unbelievable.

    Todd is wearing his pride.

    Saul says they can relate and sympathize with some of the injuries that happened as a result of the marathon bombings.

    He says they knew injury was a possibility going in to war, but injury was the furthest thing from most people’s minds on Marathon Monday.

    “Life without a limb is limitless” is their slogan.

    Todd says their mission is to inspire other people, to let them know that traumatic injuries don’t prevent you from doing what you want to do.

    Both Todd and Saul discuss when they lost part of their legs.

    Watch the attached video for more as they talk about their drive and passion.

    Again, the game is Monday, August 19 at 6 p.m.
