Sandlot Kids

It's not unusual to walk through the town of Luperon and find this scene. An empty lot just barely big enough to play a little baseball. Even though the 'official' diamond is only down the street these guys prefer this sandlot.

If you can field a ball in this yard you're bound to be ready for the majors once you're old enough. Talk about tough guys, these kids were whacking a tennis ball with a stick, running and rolling through rocks and glass and donkey do-do to field the ball with their cardboard gloves and making double plays like the pros.

How do we get hold of Lou? I think he can find a shortstop down here.



And you thought the bleachers at Wrigley were unique.

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!

HAPPY SAILING TO ALL SAILORS AND CREW!

AND GO CUBS GO!!
