Not Forgotten Softball Tournament in 2014. Explaining our purpose.
Winter Worlds 2014
Retired U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Joseph Kasper started the NotForgotten Softball team out of Joint Base Andrews in 2014. At the time, his vision was simple: play softball and not forget the U.S. Army, United States Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Coast Guardmembers who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Since then, Not Forgotten has expanded to 10 teams around the country. August 11-14, the Not Forgotten softball teams took their message with them to the 2016 USSSA-Slowpitch Softball Military Worlds Tournament in Augusta, Ga., with the hope that through the sport, others would be reminded of the price of freedom.
