Wasn’t that an unusual late spring night that included rain along with thunder and lightning?
That reminds me of when I was working for a company about ten years ago or so. The company was hosting an event that drew people from all over the world. One night there was an event like last night, with thunder and lightning that was the talk of the next day. For the local people that is. For people from the south and Midwest thought it was pretty funny how we went on about it.
Strangely enough, that early evening the area got hit by a 3.2 earthquake. As you might expect the locals took that in stride, the visitors not so much.
Guess it depends where you’re from.
Now some sport notes.
NORTH-SOUTH BASEBALL SERIES
Two local players made the North team for the North-South series. It’s sponsored by the California Baseball Coaches Association. One hundred and twenty players from Bakersfield to Eureka tried out last week at St Mary’s of Stockton.
The two local players who made the team are juniors Austin Thomason of Petaluma and Josh Lenney of Montgomery.
The event is being played sometime this month at Santa Clara University. More details coming.
ALUMNI GET TOGETHER
They are calling it the first annual Sonoma County Alumni Tournament. It is being played this weekend and will have teams from Cardinal Newman, Elsie Allen, Maria Carrillo, Piner, Rancho Cotate and Piner. There will be three pool games, two on Saturday and one on Sunday and there is also a championship game Sunday Afternoon. Price per player is $50 and the proceeds will go to each High School baseball program. The tournament is being sponsored by the Redwood Empire Baseball League. If you are or know of someone interested contact your high school baseball coach or give Rick Cantor a call at 707-542-1836.
