grep for portion of a line with specific syntax

I am having trouble trying to grep (or whatever is best) the date out of a specific output

499942634/1322025954/FFF035/11/23/2011 12:25:53 AM/full
3423594078/1326441742/FFF034/01/13/2012 02:37:07 AM/full

I was thinking use cut from position but the date is at two different positions in the two lines above.

Please let me know how to get that date!

Try this:
cut -d'/' -f4-6 filename

almost, strip off the end?
With grep you could do something like

grep -Po '\d\d\/\d\d\/\d{4}' filename
