The fantastic astroturf baseball field at Turtle Bay is, as recent Ha-Ha vets know, the most upscale facility not only of its kind, but any kind between Ensenada and Cabo San Lucas.
It is also home to Baja’s biggest baseball game of the year, the Cruisers versus Mexican Kids softball game, one of the highlights of each Baja Ha-Ha. It’s a bit of an unusual game, as there are often 35 people on the field, every batter swings until they get a hit, and the participants range in age from about two to 82. All sexes participate, too.
In keeping with the continuing improving baseball facilities in Turtle Bay, Mike Chase of San Diego is donating a Jugs M1500 Jr. Baseball/Softball Pitching Machine to Turtle Bay. We’re sure the baseball ultra-enthusiasts will love it.
The machine may or may not be used during the Cruisers versus Mexico Kids baseball game, as the Wanderer, who has an ERA of over 10,000, is slowly recovering from Tommy John surgery.
There are currently 126 paid entries for the Baja Ha-Ha, which means there is still room for you. You can sign up at www.baja-ha.com. Right after signing up, you might want to take a break from working on your boat to working on your baseball skills.
