Baseball & Cleanups in La Bocana

News from Baja Blanca in La Bocana

Last Sunday was an important day in La Bocana. Our local baseball team (MARINEROS) celebrated 40 years of existence at the season inaugural game against Bahia Asuncion's team.





 


The stadium was packed, almost all of us local gringos were there and the original players were honored with commemorative t-shirts. Those that have passed had t-shirts given to the family - see the light blue shirts.




At half time - sexy team princesses revealed the plaque with the names of the original players. Might I just mention that they will be scholarship recipients for 2018 should anyone be interested in being a sponsor (I am speaking seriously LOL). Between the two games, one gentleman proposed to his fiancée and got yes as an answer.


In the ceremony, 25 little kids held flags representing the 25 years that the team has won the championship! They have won the last 8 in a row....this town takes baseball verrrrrrrrrrrrrry seriously.

It was a great game and La Bocana won the 1st game, Asuncion the 2nd.





Come Monday morning, I had scheduled a cleanup with Brett, an Illinois woman who has spent the last 4 months in La Bocana enjoying her retirement. I got her and we did the outside of the kids' stadium first.

Afterwards, although I wanted a siesta, I knew that high wind was predicted for the afternoon and the stands were filthy. The mess created by the winds would blow trash right towards the ocean....so off I went to clean the stands.




A lot of beer was drunk!

Lots of trash was already blown to the end of the stadium and as you can see, it is right next to the opening beyond which is a road that leads to the boat launch area.....I left it spotless! You can bet I slept like a baby last night LOL.

Blanca & her husband Les own Baja Bocana B&B should you ever find yourself on Baja's Pacific coast in La Bocana. Thank you for the report and for cleaning up!
