Field of Dreams Chapter meeting recap – 8/10/2019

Fourteen Field of Dreams Chapter members and guests gathered in Waterloo on Saturday, August 10, 2019, for a Northwoods League game between the Waterloo Bucks and Eau Claire Express.

The night featured a lot of hits, and a few errors as the Express used a five-run rally in the 8th to secure a 11-6 victory over the hosts. With the win, the Express clinched the Second Half Great Lakes East Sub-Division title (that’s a mouthful) and as I write this, the Express are playing the first-half champ Bucks in the first game of the playoffs.

The loud PA and music in Waterloo mad conversation a bit difficult, but we still had a fine evening of baseball conversation in the stands. Special thanks to Paul Spyhalski for coming down from Austin, Minnesota to join the fun.

If you’re so inclined, you can listen to the full game online. Skip to the 153 minute for the decisive bases-loaded double in the 8th.

We hope to have a more formal chapter meeting sometime this fall. If you have not already, join the chapter group on Facebook at
