It was a sunny 56 degrees Saturday afternoon, when the Camas High School baseball players stepped onto the shiny green grass to play Hudson’s Bay at Propstra Park.
“Look at this,” said head coach Joe Hallead as he tilted his head to the sky and shielded his eyes. “Is that blue? Tell me it’s not a painting.”
“When it’s sunny, I feel like everybody is more happy and ready to play better,” added senior Jace Schumacher.
Schumacher had a good day at the plate. He delivered three hits and scored two runs to help the Papermakers beat the Eagles 8-2.
“It’s a pretty good feeling standing on base after those hits,” Schumacher said. “This is my first year on varsity, and I feel like it’s my time to shine.”
