SPEARFISH — A federal judge in Rapid City denied a motion by the Expedition League to issue a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, keeping the Spearfish Sasquatch from playing baseball, thus allowing the Sasquatch to open its 2022 Independence League baseball season Tuesday night in Dickinson, N.D. against the Badlands Big Sticks.

The Expedition League filed the motion stating that the teams moving to the new league violated the non-compete clauses in their contracts, and the Expedition League was also seeking damages.
