A lot of you heard at the opening ceremony that we lost a member of our Little League Community recently… As mentioned in the opening, Debbie Jacobsen was involved with Little League for 30 years in Carson Valley. I think the photo below of her with Scott Hoyle shows her “spirit” very well… she was a very special ambassador of life and she will be very missed.
Debbie’s memorial was today at 2:00 PM
Rest in Peace Debbie…. Please continue to look over your community and we will try to continue your good works while we are still here.
Photo of the Day for Friday… (sorry for the delay, been at the park more than at home for the last 100 hours…)
Effort of the Day we’ll call this… and while he didn’t make the out… this is the effort that it takes sometimes to win… Carson Valley ended up winning this game, can’t help but think that if you have enough of a team making this effort that good things will happen!!
Photo of the Day! Some great plays happening out at the park! This one caught my eye early… really great to see a hard charging shortstop (10/11 year old…) going after this ball to make the play and get the out at first! Well done!
The first day is in the books! I have to go with a double Photo of the Day and it goes to the poof of dirt off the catcher’s glove! 🙂
There are some things I always try to get every year, some are harder than others so the quest will always continue… this is one of those things (along with bat on ball, close plays at 2nd and 3rd, etc., etc….) so stay tuned!
After road trips for nearly every Northern Nevada high school football teams last week, this week has nearly everyone back in the area and playing cross league opponents… Carson hosted Reno tonight…
Reno has some fire power this year… Brandon Kaho is the talk of the league right now it seems, what’s his decision regarding college going to be is what’s on a lot of people’s minds… great for him to have some impressive options for college! He gave me a great shot tonight so I’m pleased! Check it out below…
Carson is entering the season with some rookie players at key positions… the big one is quarterback… Daniel Morrison (who filled in last year for the injured Jace Keema…) was expected to lead the team this year but a re-injury of his knee will have him out for the season so Blake Menzel will be looked upon to lead the team with Johnathan Laplante, who was brought up from the JV team recently will also be seeing some reps, as he did tonight… tough position to be in for Carson but that’s high school sports, we’ll see who steps up! 🙂
On to the photos from tonight… (check out more in the galleries… here…)
