The Salem-Keizer Volcanoes

20140713_171106We watched our second baseball game of the season.  We haven’t visited many places with baseball teams this year.  But we are now in the territory of the Northwest League, a short season Class A league.  The Salem- Keizer Volcanoes are an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.  Salem is the larger city, but the stadium is in the adjoining town of Keizer.  Attendance was a bit sparse the night we went – probably just under a thousand people and the home team Volcanoes lost by a score of 7 to 5.  Most of these guys are later round draftees who have very limited prospects of ever making “the show” but they still are living the dream that they will play in majors one day.
