What a great story.   I had never heard of  Strikeouts  for Troops (TM),  a program that is dedicated to helping our wounded troops and families by providing “comforts of home” while being treated at military hospitals nationwide.  This Tuesday, Sep 11th, USAA will also donate $400 per strike out to Strikeouts for Troops in all 16 MLB games played.
