Eugene Emeralds Baseball Game

August 24, 2006

Fifty-nine people, 42 members and 17 non-members signed up for the first annual trip to see the Eugene Emeralds. At 5:45 under sunny skies and a temperature of 73, the gates were opened for the pre-game barbecue that brought out spouses, friends and relatives who have rarely if ever been seen at an Obsidian outing. Clearly, baseball combined with unlimited food was an appealing combination. There were several other groups attending the pre-game barbecue which led to a very long line for food. However, this gave people time to chat as they slowly moved towards the hamburgers, hot dogs, garden burgers, potato salad, corn on the cob, and watermelon. Fortunately, the drinks were readily available. By the time everyone got back to their tables, the game had started. The Emeralds quickly fell behind 1-0 in the top of the first. The lead was short-lived though as Eugene scored 2 runs in the bottom of the first. The visiting Vancouver Canadians scored a second run in the 2nd inning and a third run in the top of the 3rd to retake the lead. The Emeralds responded with four runs in the bottom of the third inning including two home runs to retake the lead for good at 6-3. The final score was the Emeralds 7, the Vancouver Canadians 3, and a lot of fun for everyone attending. The trip was led by Jim Duncan and Stewart Hoeg.
