Boys of summer

The season is going strong with the local baseball leagues during this game in the mid-1980s — a pastime that has persisted in the valley since the 1970s, when people would join a team even before securing housing. From the July 25, 1985, edition of The Aspen Times, pictured is Sonie Pital, of the Snowmass Town Team, right after he was called out attempting to slide into a base. He is on his knees while the defense is walking off of the field at the end of the inning.
