A new field for the old game
The sun shone bright enough but a blustery wind made sweaters de rigueur, a windbreaker even better, for those attending the first baseball game to be played on the high school's brand-new diamond, Monday. The fickle breeze picked up dust and carried it into the faces of batters and fans - a minor inconvenience, at least for the fans. Dugouts were only indicated by foundations and bleachers were not yet available. More funds are needed to finish the job, but the field is already a major improvement to the school's sports venue and those responsible for building it are to be congratulated and thanked.
Timo Nivala, a home-schooled senior, has been filling the 3rd singles seat with distinction.
