Photo of the Day 8/4/18

Last Thursday evening turned into one of those lazy hazy days of Summer. A gentle breeze blew away the heat of the day and the orange rays of a setting sun squeezed through a grove of Redwood trees at Albert Park in San Rafael, CA.

Time of the first pitch, 7:15 PM, the temperature, 75º. You know you’re in Northern California when the temperature gets applause.

Long shadows stretched across the field in a patchwork pattern. Mad Max Beatty was on the mound for the Pacifics and he would be facing the Napa Silverados, the newest team in the league and the one he’s had the most trouble with.

The shadows weren’t the only thing that were long this night. The game stretched to 3 1/2 hours as the temperature fell to 60º by the end of the game. Also falling were the hopes of the Pacifics to beat Napa in this first game of a home stand.

Mad Max only made through 5 1/3 innings before being pulled by the manager, Matt Kavanaugh. Max allowed 7 earned runs out of 9 runs total. The final score was 10—8 for the Napa Silverados

Some days you eat the bear, and some days the bear eats you.

Max Beatty has pitched six complete games this season.

He’ll be back.

Tanned, rested, and ready.

    The cable lines that start on the top left corner and recede into nothing to the right adds a really nice frame. Sorry about the loss. They’ll find a way to beat Napa, I’m sure 🙂

      Win or lose, we have an enjoyable time at the ball park. I had not given a lot of thought to the overhead power lines until you mentioned it, and now I can see your point. Thanks.
