Two Game Series vs. Rio Mesa

Another week, another pair of Hueneme H.S. Viking's frosh baseball games. The schedule called for a home-and-home series with the Rio Mesa H.S. Spartans.

The game on Tuesday was at Rio Mesa where I was greeted by. . .

. . . A Wooden Car???

Well, it is not all made out of wood but it is still quite interseting and the hand made creation of Rio Mesa Wood Shop teacher, Jeff Maxwell.

Awesome, eh?

Time for the rematch at Hueneme on Thursday.

I wish our right fielder would bend his knees.

That's better!

Aaron Velasquez rips one down the line!

His mitt is older than any of his players. The Vikings put 6 runs on the board but it was still not enough as the Vikings still search for their first win of campaign at home on Saturday morning in a rain make-up game against the Channel Islands Raiders.
