The weather looks warm Friday and there is rain in the forecast for Saturday but Sunday looks great for the Border Battle.  I (DW) will be there collecting video and picture content and the chat room will be up here on Softball Center to discuss it or answer questions.  The Cleveland Zoo is less than a mile from the park and of course the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is downtown, the Guardians host the White Sox each day, and the night life in the Flats are all close by.

The Playing Fields

The Talty Field at the Brookside Reservation is an all turf baseball field with 315-355-365-355-315 dimensions.

So it is a little bit bigger than the Smoky main field at Sand Springs park.

The two other fields are dirt and natural grass fields around 300 feet.  There are 4 games played on the 2nd field.
