It has been a long wait, but we have finally made it, baseball season is upon us. Though Major League Baseball hasn’t made any public decisions, youth baseball is about to get rolling in Sheridan County. Watching the Troopers play in early June got me excited about summer and all the great activities that are on the horizon. Making healthy decisions and practicing what our state and county health departments recommend will remain important, especially if we want to continue having games and events. I am looking forward to watching the growth of youth softball in our community. The Sheridan Recreation District will continue the momentum from last summer and offer another season of fast pitch for 4th through 8th graders and coach pitch for 1st through 3rd graders. We are excited to work with Sheridan Fast Pitch who offers a travel program. It is important for youth programs to work together to offer the best experience possible for the kids in our community. I have seen that practiced more often and am proud that the Recreation District can be a part of it. Don’t forget to show those who give their time as umpires the respect they deserve. Often times a thankless job, umpires are an essential part of the game and are tasked with making decisions that 50% of folks are going to like, and the other half are not. No matter if you are playing in the adult softball league, or watching a youth game, be the example our youth need and show appreciation to those who are willing to the job. Beyond the ball diamond I am excited for outdoor adventures this summer. Though it is unfortunate that the Bighorn Trail Run is canceled this year, I am looking forward to hitting the trails and exploring new spots. As part of our outdoor education program Bighorn Mountain Guides will be taking kids rock climbing in June. I think this is a great experience for kids to get out and try something new. Rock climbing is a skill that can last a life time, and the earlier a person starts the more incredible adventures and memories they will be able to enjoy. Additionally we will be partnering with Bighorn Mountain Guides for outdoor adventure camps headquartered at the yurt at Antelope Butte. There is no better time to be on top of the mountain then the middle of the summer when it starts to get hot at lower elevation. The camps will provide experiences in rock climbing, outdoor science learning, and other fun activities. It’s an exciting time for everyone as places in our community start to open up, but it is important to be patient and to continue making safe decisions. I am very proud of the way our community has endured the trials of the past few months, and if we continue to work together and trust those who are tasked with keeping us all safe, we will come out of this a stronger community.
