Game Strategy

Through America's favorite pastime, the Mixed Nutts program helps to connect our veterans with the surrounding community. Each year we have the opportunity to share the deep history of Borman Field with local newcomers of all ages, and in return, their participation creates new friendships both on-and-off the field. Enjoying outdoor exercise and team camaraderie,

We aim to empower, encourage and support veterans and individuals of all ages who want to explore playing ball, in spite of physical or other challenges. Residents from the Veteran's home play in  replica vintage uniforms worn by the Home's 1915 Veterans Team at Borman Field.  They range in ages from 62 to 94 years Young! simply taking in a game as a spectator are important ways to improve overall wellness and quality of life.
