Have to go with this one tonight for Photo of the Day… I wasn’t on the ball enough to actually get the play he made but a huge ball of dirt swallowed him… but he made the play and kept the ball in the infield! 🙂

The 2016 Nevada District 1 All Star Tournament… Day 5

Day 5 in the books, day off tomorrow!  Whew!  We’re tired!

Today started the “going home” stage of the tournaments… that ramps up the “urgency” for me in getting photos, it’s been a busy weekend with long hours!  We get a break for the 4th of July Holiday tomorrow and back at it Tuesday evening.

We’ll see you at the field on Tuesday!
