Well beat the drum, and hold the phone. The sun came out today. We’re born again, there’s new grass on the field.
Around to third, and headed for home. It’s a Camas Papermaker. Any one can understand the way I feel.
Put me in coach, I’m ready to play today!

I arrived at the Camas High School field an hour before the game just to take in the atmosphere. Smell the green grass, admire the rich soil, follow the chalked lines from home plate, past the bases, into the outfield and beyond.
I asked Camas head coach Joe Hallead if there would be a baseball game today. He smiled and said, “I think so.” I told him, “it rained every day in March, but April is looking awesome!”
