Sotfball Field

With small communities in Nova Scotia losing population, ball fields like this is all the more common

This old unused softball field used to be the site of many games. Some of which I played in.

But with fewer families staying in this area the field has remained unused for many years.

Nothing but ghosts and memories cheering now

Believe it or not, I actually helped build this field. Dug rocks, racked the ground pulled weeds, all that shit.


I mostly played second base, so this was my usual view.

Put me in coach, I’m ready to play today

Look at me, I can be, Centerfield
Take Me out to the Ball Game

Had lots of fun here, won or lost, now it doesn’t matter. It’s all just great memories now.


It was fun and amazing to come back here and check out the old field.

It’s pretty sad what it has become, but also amazing that it was built for us to begin with.
