West Virginia baseball coach Randy Mazey and his wife, Amanda, announced the start of Team Wammer, a charitable effort to help the families of injured children, Friday morning.

Team Wammer was started in honor of The Mazey’s 14-year-old son, Weston “Wammer” Mazey, who suffered multiple head injuries after a collision on the baseball field on March 9. Weston suffered several broken bones in his face, a fractured skull and a traumatic brain injury following the collision. According to the Team Wammer website, Weston spent a week in the intensive care unit and several days at WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital before being flown to the Shepherd Center in Atlanta Georgia. His recovery can be watched in the video below:

The Mazey’s have set a goal to raise $100,000 in 100 days to helps the families of children who have suffered traumatic injuries. They have partnered with the HOSS Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to helping meet the need of children and their families facing hardships started by former NFL quarterback Jeff Hostetler.

Team Wammer is supporting WVU Medicine Children’s Hospital, Shepherd Center and Canine Companions for Independence.

Randy Mazey is also hosting a free father/son baseball camp on Saturday, June 19 in support of Team Wammer. A minimum donation of $150 is required for registration.
