Went to watch Cody Weatherbee play for the Eureka JV baseball team against Arcata. The Redwood field in Cutten was in good shape considering the weather. Rex Bohn said it took about $300 to get it playable. Kudos to the volunteers. I would guess the Temp around 50 and wind chill at 45. Brrr. There was a great crowd and they were treated to a solid, clean performance by both teams. The final score was 6-6 in 6 innings. The game was called rightly by umpire Dave Rhodes in the top of the 7th due to darkness.
One issue I have with high school baseball: They should have a pitch count for these kids! The Arcata pitcher had to be well over 100 pitches in his stint. No High school pitcher should be allowed to go over this limit. Professional pitchers and college hurlers are not allowed or are monitored to stay under this limit. I feel high school should do the same. And Babe Ruth too!
