3:23 P.M. — A foul ball brings out the youth in everyone. This one was sprayed to the first base line stands and bounced by no one. A 50-year-old male scrambled for it until it bounced out of his reach, which in result set off a mad scramble for the ball between a 8-year-old, a 18-year-old and a 38-year-old. The teenager won, but not before the little kid took one last desperate swipe at the ball. Gotta love it.

3:16 P.M. — Figured I should eventually update you on this game going on in front of me. In the third elimination of the day, the Colorado Springs Doubledays and the Clarinda (Ia.) A’s are playing right now. The A’s have a 3-0 lead right now in the bottom of the third inning. I’m intrigued by this Doubledays nickname. More research on the way.
