Wheelchair softball field to be named for Todd Anderson
MINNEAPOLIS, July 16, 2012—Minnesota's first softball field for competitive wheelchair play will carry the name of the late Todd Anderson, CP, a longtime employee of Ottobock U.S. Healthcare. The new field at Northwoods Park in Brooklyn Park, Minn., will be inaugurated Aug. 9, and was made possible in part by a $200,000 grant through the Major League Baseball/Pepsi Refresh Project. Anderson died nearly two years ago at age 50. He had become a certified prosthetist after losing his leg below the knee in a motorcycle accident. He eventually became an internationally recognized expert and innovator in the design of artificial limbs and the author of clinical works. Visit www.ottobockus.com.
