COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - July 31, 2020 - USA Field Hockey is pleased to announce the addition of four new Hero Power Cards to the Backyard Field Hockey, presented by STX, program.


The game now includes a total of twelve Hero Power Cards that allow players to assume the super strengths of the U.S. National Team athletes featured. The original Hero Power Cards unleashed the skills and abilities of eight current U.S. Men's and Women's National Team players including Lauren Moyer, Linnea Gonzales, Ajai Dhadwal and Aki Kaeppeler. The new set is a nod to those who laid the foundation for the current generation. These Legacy Hero Power Cards feature Los Angeles 1984 Olympians Nigel Traverso and Manzar Iqbal along with Atlanta 1996 Olympians Steve Danielson, the most capped indoor and outdoor USMNT athlete, and Larry Amar.


Be on the lookout for a set of U.S. Women's National Team Legacy Hero Power Cards in the coming months.
