With outdoor events almost a complete washout this summer (unless you're a duck or a mushroom), celebrating the Fourth had almost slipped my mind.
Celebrate, Pasadena. Have a safe and happy Fourth of July.
There's still room for teams to enter the Lake Shore Youth Baseball tournament planned for next weekend at the Lake Shore Athletic Complex on Woods Road.
The sign-up fee has been lowered to $75 a team in hopes of attracting more teams.
Openings are available for teams in the ages 5-6, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14 groups. The top two teams from each age group will play in double elimination to determine first place. Players on the first- and second-place teams in each bracket will receive trophies.
The drawing meeting will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the complex.
For more details, call Kent Devault at 437-8667, or Joan Harris at 437-3707.
