Catcher throws to first on a bases empty ball four.

No outs no R. B1 walks and F2 fires the ball down to F3 ahead of the B1. I have only seen this a couple times in youth ball (16U) using FED rules and both times I warned the catcher. I told him if...

No precip and no wind expected.

It's supposed to warm up to 40 by game 2 at noon and 43 by game 4 at 4:00. I'll report on how things go. I'm guessing there will be someone in shorts and a parka.

Too bad the Twins are still in...
