The Boys of Summer. Go Sabre Dogs!

It wouldn't be summer with out The Boys of Summer. I've written several posts over the years about the historic base ball field across the street from my home, Corbett Field. The famous Satchel Page was a member of Minot's local team, The Mallards, back in the day.

Today Corbett Field is home to The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs. The dogs are just wrapping up their 2nd year here in Minot and I couldn't be happier that this team plays right across the street from my home (also that my son Timmothy is an employee of The Sabre Dogs).

Corbett   The Team

If you are a regular reader of my blog or a regular listener to my radio broadcasts you know that I have interviewed The Sabre Dogs General Manager, Darrell Handelsman, two times on my show as well as the assistant manager, Savanna, once. Those were each some of my favorite interviews just because of the high level of energy and enthusiasm those two have.

Girls of Summer

I also happen to like some of the fans of the boys of summer. Darrell always apologizes to me about the parking and the noise but again I love it (except for a few idiots that park smack dab in the alley blocking traffic to our garage and making it impossible for emergency vehicles to use the alley if they needed to). The stadium parking lot fills up quickly so about half the legs... err... I mean fans... walk to my house and cross the street using my driveway.

The Souris Valley Sabre Dogs is a collegette team with boys from all over the USA participating. It's GREAT to have them here. Before they came the baseball audiance at Corbet Field dwindled down to about 20 bored parents in the stands. When the Sabre Dogs play it's like a circus with about 1,000 people in the stands.

Baseball has always been a big part of summer in the USA. I'm so glad that Minot ND has a historic ball park and that all these years later it's getting good use, right across the street from my home.

It may sound absurd Wayne Martin but you don't have to be a fan to have a good time at one of these games. It's like a 3 ring circus with entertainment going on all around the diamond and even on the field between innings. There are also two bars, a restaurant, and several vendors set up along the sidelines. It's a big party with a ball game being played as part of the entertainment.
