Little Big League

Congratulations to Forest Hills Youth Athletic Association – Girl’s Softball Division for pulling off a terrific movie night on Saturday 8/23.

Located at the very cool Little League field, an inflatable movie screen showed "A League of Their Own" in centerfield as people sat on blankets. Also a shout out to the creative local billboards on the rightfield wall - my favorite being from Dani's who give away free pies to anyone who hits the sign.

And to complete the smalltown USA feel, one of the gray-haired organizers had to chase away some harmless dirtbags who had little interest in baseball or cleaning up their paper plates just past first base. The exchange was straight out of Breakfast Club. Oh well, I'm sure there's a town fair where they could hang out instead.

But it really was well done. Completely free (donations were accepted) with modestly priced snacks. See you next year!
