Anyone on here play amateur baseball or otherwise known as "town ball"? The state tourney is going on this weekend in Norwood and Hamburg. I play for St. Francis and we take on a good Elko squad this Friday at 5. Guys should make the trip and watch some amateurs play some good baseball. Anyone else play?

I did before I went into the service, then played over in Germany for a couple of years. Town ball was the best, grass roots ball, play hard, argue, kick dirt and cuss, when all was said & done, drink a few beers, shake hands and gain a couple more friends. Life is simple, if you allow it to be cool.gifcool.gif

You must play for Waterville. If so, I believe your pitcher threw it away to end the game. Maybe I will try to schedule a game with you guys next year.

Nothing better than town ball, I love playing against a small town team on a Friday night or Sunday afternoon when the whole town comes to watch. Howard Lake and Dassel come to mind. I am sure there are many more. It seems like western MN has those kind of teams. We are trying to get that atmosphere here in St. Francis but it is mostly just wives and girlfriends. It seems like some of the better ball players option for softball over baseball. You can pick up softball when your 40 and be good at it. Town ball is the best!!!!

Hey if you guys are looking for some Amateur Baseball you have to check out the action at US Cellular. The Sox are all amateur players this year. Last night was a true gem. 4 errors in one inning and 3 of them by one player!

I play for Dumont, which is in very western Minnesota. Friday night home games with the big home crowd are the best! We did take a trip down and played Saint Boni. this year - I believe they are in the same leauge as Watertown.........

It makes me all giggly inside when I see that logo as your avatar.....now they gotta get down to business as the stretch run starts this pm against the 'stros - or else it'll just be a hollow victory for me to have won our bet.

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Here is some more dirty ice armor fish pics..... todays beast, released to fight again

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!

      My advice for ice fishing on Vermilion would be to avoid high traffic areas.  I always believed this before, but this weekend seemed to validate that theory. On Thursday my neighbors in our ice fishing village decided to plow roads, driveways, and parking lots all around, and I only caught 4 little walleyes. Friday I planned to take my portable out to an isolated spot, but none of my village neighbors were out that day, and the fishing was very good.  I caught 14 walleyes that day, including 21" and the pictured 26" and 24" slotters. Saturday I thought that maybe the fishing was just picking up so I fished in my permanent again.  Caught only 2 walleyes while my neighbors proceeded to have a big family gathering with many vehicles going back and forth. Love fishing in my permanent house, but the next time it starts to get busy in the neighborhood, I am moving out with my portable.

      Who’s worried about a jacket showing proof of action when the catching is that good?! 
    • eyeguy 54
      yes indeed, its fun when they fight back. lol .  the cgi's got a workout! I put a jar of the secret bait in my red box as soon as I got home.     BWAAAAA HAAAAAAA HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA ! ! ! 
    • leech~~
