Baseball Improvement in Turtle Bay

The fabulous baseball stadium at Turtle Bay as seen during the Cruisers versus Local Kids annual baseball game. With the Ha-Ha fleet boats in the background, the stadium is often compared favorably with AT&T Park in San Francisco.

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 Right after signing up, you might want to take a break from working on your boat to working on your baseball skills.

"What do you do when you cross paths with cruising friends in the middle of the ocean and you’re headed in different directions?” asked Lewis Allen and Alyssa Alexopulous of the Redwood City and Fiji-based Voyage 43 catamaran Quixotic.
In our occasional ode to the lone, brave soul who ventures to the pointy end of the boat to take care of business, we bring you a scene from spring time racing on the Bay.
