Old People Yelling At Clouds
#1
Writing at the high school garden tonight while Cascade softball hosts a game. The team they are playing is one of those that sings in the dugout when they are at bat. First time I've heard that in some time.

It's cute at first but soon it becomes so annoying.

Going to go yell at some clouds now.

Yes sir. I believe Iowa is the only state playing high school baseball and softball in the summer.

Deceitful, two-faced she-woman. Never trust a female, Delmar, remember that one simple precept and your time with me will not have been ill spent.

The season usually starts the week after Memorial Day. Everything is basically crammed into June during a normal season. Most Iowa high schools don't have the enrollment numbers to have traditional spring sports along with baseball and softball.

Nice to meet you, BengalHawk.

The White Sox and Cubs are this year I believe. It was supposed to be the Sox and Yankees, but then the Corona screwed that up.

I've lived in the general area of FOD my entire life. The site's history would make for an interesting book/doc/podcast. From the fighting between the families who originally owned it to the battle between the new owners and the Dyersville community.

I don't think there is anything scandalous, but lots of things which would make shake your head.

Is this Heaven?

No, It's Iowa!  Cool

There's not much of the abbreviated Iowa high school baseball and softball season left to play, but Cedar Falls has suspended its seasons.

A side note to that, there is a place in the misses home town called Big League Dreams (there are actually several around CA) that has little league fields that are replicas of Fenway, Wrigley, Yankee Stadium, etc...

During last night's softball game, I finally noticed there wasn't anyone taking admission. There was a pail on a chair near the main bleacher section.

I talked to a baseball mom this morning and she said none of the schools are charging admission for these abbreviated seasons. Everyone is basically going the donation route.

Thought that was interesting.
