A Game Played

The thermometer reads 42 degrees but the handy Weather app reminds us that the gale force winds make it feel like -62 degrees.  Okay, maybe it feels like 36 degrees.  Three coaches and ten 11- and 12-year old baseball players arrive for the Friday 8:00 game under the lights.  First base is an island in the middle of standing muddy water - motivation for Katie and Alex to dig out everything thrown to them.  The game starts with a beautiful catch in center field by Parker.  We lose Friday evening but we did get to play.  The only thing worse than losing a baseball game is not playing a baseball game.

Scenes of American life and much more at Cultural Offering.
