The Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team is made of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans with prosthetic arms or legs. They aim to raise awareness of American soldiers' sacrifices as well as to show other amputees (and the general public) that they can still pursue full and athletic lives. 

As part of their tour around Spring Training sites this March, the WWAST faced off against the Royals' coaches at Kansas City's camp in Surprise, Ariz., on Saturday. Not only was the contest for a worthy cause, it was also an opportunity to hear some things you don't hear every day on the baseball field ("you've got to worry about a lot of different things, the arm slipping off, and this and that") -- as well as a chance for Royals players to see their coaches trip over themselves while swinging.
