Although the calendar summer is a few days off, the season is well underway with local K-12 students. The above photo features a baseball game on the McBane field Guilford College campus. While the Guilford Quakers practice and play on this field, they must also rent it out to local teams, possibly AAU. AAU baseball is very popular in Greensboro, as is the sport in general. From the Greensboro Grasshoppers to the littlest league, we've got parents and fans out cheering their teams on. The photo captures the intensity of the faceoff between pitcher and batter. Everyone was focused.
This summer, pack your folding chairs, head to one of our city's many baseball fields, and chances are you'll enjoy some baseball playing. Nothing says summer fun like a warm evening of watching baseball. The Greensboro Grasshoppers will be in town from June 24th-30th this month. Consider taking in a Grasshopper game (see schedule here). By the way, they supply comfortable chairs!
