ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Less than two months after being seriously injured in a car crash, two St. Cloud Rox baseball players returned to the field last night to reunite with their teammates.

Dalton Sawyer and Kasey Rolston were hurt when their car crashed on Highway Seven near New Germany

Ralston nearly died, and is still using a wheelchair. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch last night. He says it was an "awesome" experience.

Saywer suffered a concussion and a collapsed lung in the crash. He's recovering, and has started throwing again. He says, " you need to take every day as a gift because you never know when things can end."
