Re: State of the Quarry

The Quarry light fixtures are sitting on a ship at the port of San Diego waiting for a dock to open. Based on that, the company has set the shipping date as 10/4. We have a shot to get them on the following Thursday or Friday and if I can line up everyone and everything, the lights will go up on 10/...

Men's Fall Classic 1-Pitch Results

With 2 powerhouse offenses set to match off in the finals, fireworks were about to erupt. In fact, I checked the backup ball count just to make sure there were enough to cover the over-the-fence blasts. Defending champs Philly Junk took a 2-0 lead early. Doom Cats cut that lead in half mid-game. It ...

Damn right! The only way I'm getting 60' off the ground is by elevator.

Re: State of the Quarry

That's a big ask. Even if we could get rid of the divots, they'd only come right back. It's just wear and tear. MLB teams play 162 games in a season, 81 of which are on their home field. Think about it. 81 games over the course of 7 months. The Quarry sees 81 games in a little more than 2 weeks and ...

Re: State of the Quarry

I never had any problems with the lighting, I'm more excited to hear about the dirt redistribution. Any idea how extensive that work might be? I love the quarry but trying to reach your cut-off man from deep in the outfield is brutal with the uphill factor If you can't reach the cut-off, the cut-of...

State of the Quarry

The Quarry ball field is owned by the Eureka Quarry. It was leased to Andy Suder (snack bar) back in the early 80’s. Andy maintained the lease and I sublet the ball field from Andy. What a lot of league members never knew was my hands were very much tied with what I could do with the ball field. Any...

Re: Proposed Eddie 1-Pitch Tournament

I am sad to announce the Eddie 1-Pitch Tournament has been postponed until 2022. A number of factors contributed to this decision. First off, I'm getting a strong sense that enough draft candidates won't be available come crunch time. As it is now, 1-pitch candidates are beginning to drop off. With ...

Team 14 (Morning Wood) has pulled out of the league at the last minute. A revised schedule has been posted. There is a change to Week 1. One Hit Wonders will play at 11:30 instead of the originally scheduled 12:45. There are some changes to the balance of the schedule, but nothing dramatic.

Re: Sunday Afternoon Coed / Fall 2021

A miscommunication between Team Envi and the league resulted in the team being left off the fall schedule. In order for me to make things right and allow them to play this season, I needed help from Dirty Dogs, Slap a Pitch, and I'd Hit That. All 3 teams accommodated, thank you. Team Envi can now pl...
