Little League at West Union Fields: A Story

Let's say you're up early on a Saturday morning to take your husband to the airport. Let's say that you've had your coffee and breakfast, read the newspaper, and the weather is pleasant enough outside that you wish you had a ballgame on the schedule. But what would you do if it was an open day on the game schedule?

Even though our son's Little League playing days are over, it seems our Little League Fan days show no signs of slowing down. Jack plays for Westview Junior Baseball on the "Senior Federal" team of 13-14 year olds with a 7-1 record in league play. We had a bye on Thursday and a rare weekend with no tournament to attend.

Sooooooo, we enjoyed watching other teams and kids and cheering for old friends and new ones. We attended a doubleheader on Friday night between Mound Time, a local club team, who plays in Tualatin Hills Babe Ruth.

Our open Saturday allowed us to hang out at West Union Fields and catch SunCreek Little League games -- the pictures are posted below. It was a pleasure to watch the kids, and their parents, enjoying a mild day in the Portland area while younger siblings hung out on the grass and the playground.

While I wish we were on the bleachers at one of Jack's games, it sure beats doing housework!
