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.........

MAGNIFICENT!

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.

      Anyone know how the lakes are doing in the Madison Lake area? Still fishable? Ice pulling away from shore yet?
    • biff
      The big storm last weekend blew a lot of ice into shore around the park point area...the south pier was closed again and there is ice piled up around the pier...not good for the coho fishing off the pier and not good for the smelting off the point. At least the weather is going to be in the 50's for awhile it looks like.

      Heard about these. Have done the cheeks but this ill have to try.

      While ice fishing on Caribou, I was gobsmacked that I could see my jig over thirty feet deep when peering down the hole.

      Funny and it worked.  Say, how did you get out without Mommy and the kids?

      Welcome, Better Then Work!   Hope you and your Dad hit it hard up there, time with family is what life is all about. Make sure to post a report in the Rainy Lake thread. We want to see pictures too!

      Went up this morning. Taking the boat out in the morning on the 22 access I wont get out to far but it can be great for cats where the ice is.  lots of dead matter etc. we will see.
    • IceHawk
      Snow is definitely going down things are looking up! B season should be really good saw 3 strutter Toms this afternoon comeing home from fishing. 
    • IceHawk
      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell. 
    • IceHawk
      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell
