Little League Memorial Baseball Tournament Honors Local Vet

Staff Sergeant Jordan Godbout, US Air Force Combat Medic was born and raised in Binghamton, and shared a love of baseball with many of his friends that were here today."We want his memory to live on, it also brings family, friends, his friends and classmates together, we have alot of fun." - Nick Taro (Volunteer Organizer) After returning from Afghanistan in December of 2011, Jordan was killed in a car accident less than a year later while stationed in North Carolina. To honor his legacy, the town of Binghamton teamed up with the Wounded Warrior Project, and through the tournament, raised money to support veterans like
Godbout." The good people that are here today are here for one reason and one reason only, and that's to honor the memory of Jordan Godbout, Jordan was an intregal part of our baseball program, he started off in the teeball program and worked his way up through minor league and little league, he was an all star little league player." - Tim Whitesell (Binghamton Town Supervisor)
While the fundraiser for the Wounded Warrior Project is ongoing, last year the raised tournament $3,000.
The tournament is set to take place from July 14th to the 19th, weather permitting, and if you are interested in donating or getting involved, visit woundedwarriorproject.org
