PK Park – Eugene, Oregon – Home of Ducks Baseball
On Friday night the Ducks were on top of the world. With a 3-0 lead heading into the 9th inning, and a share of 1st place in the Pac-12 within sight, all seemed to be going their way. The Beavers then loaded the bases in time for this photo. The batter, Danny Hayes, hit a rocket to right that could have evened things up, or put the Beavers ahead, but the ball went foul. The Ducks hung on to win the game and move into a tie for first. However, losses on Saturday and Sunday to the Beavers make it unlikely that anyone will be able to catch the Oregon State team with just three conference games to go.
Oregon Baseball – Craig Meredith
I spent the past couple days in Eugene. Today’s photo is from yesterday’s Civil War game with Oregon State University at PK Park. It was a tight game until the last few innings when OSU opened up their offensive attack and ended up blowing out the Ducks 9-0. The winner of today’s game (at noon) in Eugene (the last in the three-game series) will likely win the Pac-12 Conference Championship. Both teams are ranked in the NCAA Top Ten.
I have a few hundred photos from the game. How many do you want to see?
I enjoyed a birthday cake (for someone else’s birthday) from Jolene’s Sweets this past weekend. I also had one of her scones, and I’m quite certain it was the best scone I have ever had.
Today’s photo is of a box of cookies from last month.
Today’s photos are from the Michale Graves gig last month.
Garfield Park – Ashland, OR
Garfield Park (AKA the water park) in Ashland is a great place for kids of any age. We headed out there this past weekend and were disappointed to find the water wasn’t turned on yet. It was about 80 degrees, but maybe the water doesn’t run until Memorial Day weekend. The play structure for little kids has been updated in the past year or so.
