Obsidians at Emerald’s Baseball

August 6, 2009

OBSIDIANS SAY GOODBYE TO CIVIC STADIUM (but not to the EMs?)

Thirty-three Obsidians and guests turned out for our annual baseball night at Civic Stadium. The evening was cool with a threat of rain but this did not seem to affect attendance. Food and drink were good and plentiful and no one seemed to mind that the EMs lost to the Tri-City Dust Devils. A highlight for the leader and several others was the presence of Don Doerr’s dad, Bobby Doerr, a hall-of-fame second baseman for the Boston Red Sox. Mr. Doerr shared many observations from his playing days and still roots hard for the Red Sox.

It is now official that the EMs will be playing at the new PK (NOT Phil Knight) Park next year—next to Autzen Stadium. Barbeques will continue. Will we want to be there? Ed Lichtenstein, organizer.
