Abby Wambach to sign autographs Tuesday at Macy's in Boca Raton


Abby Wambach, an offensive catalyst of the U.S. women’s World Cup team, will sign autographs during a meet-and-greet session Tuesday in Boca Raton.

The first 200 fans will receive autographs beginning at 2 p.m. on the second floor of Macy’s at the Boca Town Center Mall, 5700 W. Glades Road.

Wambach plays for magicJack of the Women’s Professional Soccer League, which plays its home games at Florida Atlantic University Soccer Complex, also off Glades Road. She was named last week as player/coach for the remainder of the season.

Wambach and several other members of the U.S. team will play their first home game since the World Cup on Wednesday against Sky Blue FC.

Wambach, 31, was a two-time Southeastern Conference Player of the Year at the University of Florida and led the Gators to the NCAA Final Four as a senior. She ranks third all-time in scoring for the national team with 122 goals.
