Iowa Military Draft Softball Tournament

About The Team

 

The Louisville Slugger Warriors are a highly decorated national slow pitch softball tournament team featuring US Military Veterans and Active Duty Personnel who have suffered service-connected physical and invisible wounds. This high profile, nationally sponsored competitive tournament team consists of several military personnel that have been playing softball for close to five years post-injury, and who desire to test themselves at the next level. Many of these premiere players are testing the limits of prosthetic advancement that is available to extremely active amputees, as they continue to push the limits of their rehabilitation process.
