Baseball in the Country

Because our little town is so limited in the entertainment options, baseball season is a BIG deal. Everyone signs up his kid to be on a team and the adults have a softball league too. This year 3 out of our 4 kids played (our youngest can start next year) and Micah and I played on his company team.

So far it's my favorite part of being here. The baseball fields are beautiful! They're kept groomed and green, there's a line of trees growing behind with a small creek running along and occasionally you can see a cow or two beyond the fence. There are playground toys for the kids who don't want to sit and watch the games. Popsicles are only a quarter and the hamburgers smell delicious. We played in an all night tournament a couple weeks ago and watched the sun set behind the mountains in the west and then watched it rise up over the mountains in the east.

Our small town field:

And the trees/creek that run behind the fields:

  1. That reminds me of baseball in Shelley--even the cows (when my dad played ward softball on a country field). Sounds fun!
