Olympic Games are Underway…Rain an all!
We are over the hump as it relates to the Beijing Olympic games. The competition fields are taking a beating with 32 games in 9 days. Add daily Batting practice sessions to the games along with rain it makes for quite a challenge. Feel a lot like Disney Sports…in the summer time. I thank my lucky stars that Chad Olsen, Erik Frey and Budgie Clark are here helping with manage the fields and the 100+ volunteers. As these days pile up it makes it tough to Blog so hang with me.
The crowds have been big and the games long. We have had 5 games in the past 3 days go into extra innings. Again not the best for the fields but thats why they are there.
Here are a few photos I have been snapping for as we move toward the medal rounds this weekend. yes…USA is still in it which as an american, is a very good thing.
