The Wounded Warriors Amputee Softball Team put on quite a show in front of a large and very appreciative crowd on opening night of the Sam McQuade Sr Charity Softball Tournament earlier this season. The WWAST debuted with an exhibition victory over a group of our own North Dakota veterans before a tough one-run loss to eventual Rec IV runner up Strohs in tournament action. While we were deprived another exhibition game due to rain on Saturday, there is hope that the team will return to the tournament possibly as soon as next season.
