Photos of Davis Hendrickson and Corey Kimes’ Summer League game

IBR reader Sue and her family took a trip to Springfield one week ago and watched our own Davis Hendrickson and Corey Kimes play for the Springfield Sliders as they took on the Nashville Outlaws in front of a crowd of over 2,000.  The home team won 5-2.  Way to go, guys! 

I’m posting some of her photos and comments which she graciously passed on to me.  Thanks, Sue!


DSCI5001 Lanphier Stadium 20100711

Welcome to Robin Roberts Stadium at Lanphier Park in Springfield.


DSCI5005 Sliders Menu 20100711 

Typical ball park food on the menu.  Cheese pizza is $3 with sausage or pepperoni available for an extra 50 cents.  By the way, the field is shared by the high school next door and they still sell beer, at least at the Sliders’ games.

DSCI5009 3rd base line seating 20100711 

Seating down the 3rd base line.  The chairback seating is pretty comfortable–haven’t tried the bleachers.


DSCI5030 Sliders Mascot 20100711 

Speedy is the Sliders Mascot.  He races kids, leads Take Me Out to the Ballgame, etc.


DSCI5031 DH in RF manual scoreboard

Davis Hendrickson (#1) is heading to his position in RF. Note the manual scoreboard.  It came in handy due to some gibberish on the electronic scoreboard.


DSCI5038 DH electric scoreboard messed up 20100711

At least Davis Hendrickson’s name came out okay since the scores for each inning didn’t.  Glad they had the manual scoreboard as backup.


DSCI5047 CK 14 in dugout 20100711 

Corey Kimes (#14) at left end of dugout watching the game.  He pitched the day before–it would have been nice to see both of them play.

The electronic scoreboard worked near the end of the game.  
Sliders won 5 – 2!

Thanks again to Sue!  It’s great getting reports like this!

    against the Dekalb County Liners, wining 7 to 3,
    (giving up 1 earned run), with 6 strikeouts and 3
