For these 50 players, the weekend was part of what has been a five-plus month journey through tryouts, training weekends on the Rock to the Rockies. Along the way, they’ve also taken time to host youth clinics and dinner events to inspire future generations of our sport. After the game, many of them took to social media to express their gratitude for wearing the red, white and blue.
