The real boys of summer

       Eleven baseball teams from the Westside area have been competing this summer as “Westmoor” teams (named for Pleasant Valley’s Westmoor Park) in the Colorado Springs Parks summer baseball program between ages 5 and 16. The photo above shows a close play at first base in an age 11-12 game last week between the Westmoor Cubs and the Wasson Yankees at the Goose Gossage Youth Sports Complex on Mark Dabling Boulevard just east of I-25. The green, artificial-turf “mound” in the foreground is used by pitchers in that age group.
