PANORAMA - Sweet Times at the ...



Intent on watching the game but fingers full of cotton candy, a kid at Friday's home opening Sweets baseball game looks on as Walla Walla rolls to an 8-0 win over Corvallis.




Walla Walla's Kalani Brackenridge gets the easy out to 1st before his gum pops Tuesday versus the Portland Toros.

Sweet times at the Sweets!

Baseball is a sport with its own special flavor and style. Whether fans are enjoying the game or filling their mouth with food and drink, appetites are satiated while the game speeds slowly into the night.

Youngsters gnaw on red vines and maybe dream the big league dreams of a future some day on the delicious diamond.

Adults take the field during inning gaps to play with their food - bobbing for an onion in a tub filled with water and apples.

Between all the calories burned and consumed both on and off the field, there is something of substance at Borleske Stadium on home-game nights with the Walla Walla Sweets.

Something nutritious for the soul. Something timeless, enduring and a little bit of fun.

Baseball played or watched leaves a special taste in the mouth.

And in Walla Walla, whether in the form of cotton candy, bubble gum, beer, hot dogs or onions - oh, how sweet it is!
