Just wondering.
    Baseball 101 will be at my house, LN. Bring a meal, it'll be a long one.

    Assuming I am correct in calling the lower field to the right of the school as you're looking at the school, you may want to tell that to the NDA pitcher who gave up a walk-off homer to a HHS frosh last spring.

    It's only a Title IX no-no if it was the other way around.

Additionally, the average fastpitch fence is 200 feet from home plate. Baseball, obviously, is more like 300+.

    Picture the HHS boys baseball team playing their games on the field down in Death Valley where the softball team plays. Wouldn't work.
    Does Holmes softball team not play at Glenn O. Swing Elementary any more?

    Assuming you know that I meant HHS = Highlands, I will play along.

    Holmes still plays at Glenn O.

    Oops. my bad, I thought you did mean Holmes. Never been to Highlands for softball. They've always come to us, but haven't even played since 2001 except in the region tourney.
