Did 2nd base today. Not a lot of action at that base today, but the few calls I had, I got em right with correct mechanics.
It appears we will be getting our umpire schedules daily.

My son Scott and Justise (my grandson) arrived yesterday and accompanied us. Justise is getting excited about baseball pin trading.
The four of us (Scott, Justise, Cindy and myself) visited the original Little League World Series ball field earlier today. Carl Stoltz (the founder of Little League) built that field and they used it for the first 12 Little League World Series (1947-1958). Some real interesting stuff there. There was a half dozen old "codgers" there telling stories of the early days, what there uniforms looked like, catcher's equipment, etc. These guys had a wealth of knowledge of the early days of Little League. I really enjoyed talking with them.
