AGAWAM — During charity golf tournaments, it’s a good bet that a former athlete or two will be among the participants. These players haven’t heard the roar of the crowd during their play on the field.
However, one local charity tournament held at Crestview Country Club on Thursday, benefitting the Children’s Study Home of Springfield, there was a current athlete in the midst of the players on the pristine semi-private course. His name is probably not one you’ll find in the box scores, or on an Upper Deck trading card, but one who embodies the ethos of sacrifice, teamwork, and humility.
Who is this player? His name is Saul Bosquez, and he’s the third baseman for the Wounded Warrior Softball team. The team has become something of a national fan favorite.
… Before joining the military, Bosquez played baseball at the collegiate level in his home state of Michigan. He was a catcher and third basemen at Grand Rapids Community College and at Eastern Michigan before deployment.
