The WONDERLAND WARRIORS is the Cosmic Baseball Association's team of individuals associated with the military profession. Warriors and soldiers, leaders and followers, heroes and cowards have all had an unmistakeable influence on the history of human affairs. This incarnation of the team represents the best and the worst of the field: medal of honor winners and court-martialed soldiers exist together on the cosmic field of play.
