PHOTO: High School baseball game continues in the shadow of Colorado fire smoke

  • David Whitlock

They say a picture tells 1000 words, this one says “sorry Mother Nature, the game must go on”.  Fox 31 Denver posted the below photo (along with several others worth seeing) showing kids playing baseball as they normally would with a huge gray cloud over center field.

The photo was originally tweeted by Peter McEvoy, credited to being at Pine Creek High School just on the fringe of the evacuation area.

It is already the most destructive fire in Colorado history, thankfully to date, no injuries or fatalities have been reported.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
