Hit The Field If You Haven’t Already

If you haven’t been to PK Park or Howe Field, get off your hams and get to the stadiums!  One of the most beautiful springs in a decade is upon us, and both the Ducks baseball and softball teams are ranked in the top-10.  The softball team has taken the Pac-12, and the baseball team is trying to do the same.

I used to say that baseball and softball are fun sports to watch because they are less tense, slow-paced and genuinely relaxing.  It turns out that I’m wrong on that account.  When your team is in the top-10, just like our football team is every year, the suck-knob gets turned down and the intensity is jacked up to astronomical levels.  Seeing a squeeze play in the bottom of the ninth to beat the ‘Trees’ and a grand slam to drown the Beavers live rewrites anything you thought about the two sports.

Our softball team unveiled new uniforms this year, and they look GOOD (the jerseys I mean..), and the male mallards don’t look too shabby either.  These teams have everything you want: a sweet stadium experience, stunning uniforms, a passionate crowd and National Title echelon ball.

Quit slackin’ and get quackin’ – champions are still at work!

Brandon has been a Duck fan for ten years since he moved from southern California to Salem, Oregon, and quickly realized the Ducks were the missing piece in his life. A Pac-12 fan since birth, much of his family attended UCLA and has since converted all of them to the Quack Attack. Brandon interned for the Statesman Journal covering the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes and hopes to work for the Pac-12 in the near future. He also hopes to see the "Flying-V" formation played out on the football field in the fall of 2013. Brandon would love your feedback on any and all articles. Tweet me: @BrandonGruber

    “Get off your hams…”
    “Quit slackin’ and get quackin’…”

    Love those two phrases!! The only thing I would have liked in this post was a link to some great images of PK and the uni’s to illustrate your points.
