Pastor Hout walked by an indoor hitting cage that was full of activity. It brought back great memories of the 2019 season. It seems so long ago but it was sure a lot of fun. It was a great season and we had lots of hopes for 2020. Of course, there were not any games played in our league this year because of the COVID-19 virus. It was hard to see our fun activities cancelled. Pastor Hout dreamed of getting a bunch of people together and having a game with St. Jacob folks but that idea does not look very promising with all the snow outside. Maybe a game of kickball in the snow?
Our 2019 schedule and results are posted below. All our games were at Rice Field diamond #1 on Wednesday evenings. As we get ready for our 200th anniversary wouldn’t it be great to play some Vintage Baseball...with an old time giant ball and wooden bats and no gloves?
Here is a special number. It is the hotline for rainouts-859-5760
