Oldest continuous ballpark in the nation

Goss Stadium at Coleman Field

@OregonState @BeaverBaseball

Even older than Fenway Park (1912) and Wrigley Field (1914), baseball has been played at the site of Goss Stadium (which has seen many improvements over the years) since 1907. It only took me 110 years to see my first game there this past weekend. The game (against Washington State) was sold out so we had to procure tickets from a scalper outside the stadium (for about half of what tickets were going for on Stubhub but still more than double the face value).

The #1-ranked Beavers won, as usual. OSU will be hosting the Regionals next weekend. If all goes well, they will be hosting the Super Regionals the following weekend and heading to Omaha for the College World Series later in June.

Softball under the rainbow

20170504_195339

Last night there was a rather spectacular storm in Southern Oregon. I didn’t have my camera with me so I had to settle for this short video with my phone. We had our first softball practice of the year. With the rainbow and lightning striking all over the place, it was awesome.

Fun night for a good cause last night at Hilltop Music Shop in Phoenix. Almost $3,000 was raised, and everyone had a blast.

Yountville

Vineyard replanting

We took a little road trip down south this past weekend. We spent most of our time in Napa but headed out one morning for a walk in Yountville.

100 Watt Mind @ Johnny B’s

A little over 5 years after seeing 100 Watt Mind at old Johnny B’s, I saw them at new Johnny B’s a couple weeks ago.

Cambrian Explosion @ Johnny B’s

It’s been a while since I’ve made it out for live music. With Club 66 and Musichead both out of business, rare visits to Britt or the Ashland Armory are all that I seem to get to these days in the Rogue Valley. I swore off Johnny B’s a few years ago, but I made a rare exception a couple weeks ago when Cambrian Explosion and 100 Watt Mind were playing. Both bands were great.

Natural Bridge

Natural Bridge in the Rogue River

Today’s photo comes from my snowshoeing adventure a couple weekend’s ago. Although I’ve turned out at Rogue River Gorge Viewpoint on Highway 62 more than a dozen times over the years, I had never been to Natural Bridge Viewpoint before. The two are very close to each other, but Natural Bridge is a bit off the highway.

During winter you can’t get to the viewpoint via a car. That fact made this trek interesting for me. I was able to park in the normal turnout on Highway 62 even though the road (Rd 300 on Google maps) is not plowed. There was room for maybe three cars, but mine was the only one there on this day. From there I walked on snowshoes a little over half a mile to this location.

The Rogue River was higher than normal so the natural bridge in today’s photo isn’t that visible, but in person the scene was pretty spectacular. Water goes underground, through a lava tube, before exiting back into the Rogue River 250 feet downstream.
