Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

While the Desperado Sports Tavern of Missoula, Montana warm up for their opening game with Rooters of Fargo in the 2017 NAFA World Series, a rainbow burst across the sky in vivid colors. A brief late afternoon shower slowed down the start of the tournament, but with the diligent and efficient work of the grounds crew, Northside Softball Complex was in playing condition for the eight AA-Major games played Wednesday night, Aug. 9.
