It has been almost a year since I have shot baseball. I remember that I was shooting a weekend tournament at Opelika High School and after one of the first games, the tournament was called because of covid-19. This last Saturday, Baseball is back. Congratulations to Opelika for winning their 2 games over the weekend.
Great to be able to shoot baseball again.
