The team, of service members who have lost limbs in combat, will play Sept. 11 at 7:30 p.m. at Toyota Field in Madison.
Gates open for this tribute night at 5:30 p.m. A pregame meet-and-greet with the players is from 6-7 for photos and autographs. Presentation of the colors is by the Alabama A&M University ROTC color guard. The national anthem will be sung by Navy veteran Christopher Baxter.
