Getting the word out about Verlander’s “Wins for Warriors”
December 7th, 2014

Coming up with a good idea is maybe half the battle. Then you’ve got to bring it to fruition. Finally, you’ve got to let people know about it.

Justin Verlander’s Wins for Warriors is in phase 3 now.

Verlander, the Detroit Tigers pitcher who grew up in Goochland County, committed $1 million in August 2013 to launch Wins for Warriors, an organization aimed at providing mental health support for post-9/11 veterans and their families in three places that mean the world to him: the Richmond area, Detroit and Norfolk, where he attended Old Dominion University.
