BOSTON — Josh Wege stepped into the pitch and smacked the neon yellow softball off the Green Monster, churning his prosthetic legs as he rounded first base and headed for a double.
Eight-year-old Shaun McLaughlin, with an artificial leg of his own, ran out to retrieve the bat.
One night after the Red Sox and Yankees played another of their four-hour grudge matches, Fenway Park was friendly again.
The ballpark hosted a softball game between the Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team and a group of Boston Marathon first responders Monday to help raise money for victims of the April 15 attacks.
About 700 people helped raise $4,001 in cash donations stuffed into boxes at the gates. The money will go to The One Fund.
