(New Orleans, La.) On Friday, April 12th, Loyola University New Orleans baseball team held their Second Annual Camo Game. The Wolf Pack raised $1,675.06 auctioning off their game-worn camouflage jerseys to benefit soldiers with the Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). The Wolf Pack sold all 40 jerseys with prices ranging from the minimum bid of 50 to a high bid of 200 dollars.

Will Macaluso threw out the ceremonial first pitch prior to the Camo Game, which Loyola won 11-4 over Truett-McConnell. Macaluso is a former baseball player for the Wolf Pack and member of the 2002 GCAC Championship team. He graduated from Loyola in 2004 and became a Fighter Pilot in the Louisiana National Guard. In addition to throwing out the first pitch, Macaluso also presented a flag to the Loyola baseball program. The flag flew aboard Macaluso’s F-15C Eagle on a mission in southwest Asia.

The Wounded Warrior Project serves veterans, service members, and their families who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, during their military service on or after September 11, 2001. They strive to create the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history.
