Memphis is a pretty amazing place. It's a city full of dreamers who come up with ideas and then make them happen.
A few months back, a group of Memphians put together a Downtown versus Midtown Sandlot baseball game. Players came out to represent their zip codes and earn bragging rights by playing a friendly game of baseball. Midtown beat Downtown 6-5.
The response was so great, and Downtown was ready for a rematch, so they decided to play again. This past Sunday was the day. Downtowners were ready to defend the 38103. They came out in full force, played two games, and ultimately dominated Midtown 21-17. (On the hottest day of the year, I might add.)
Downtown and Midtown are now tied. They each have a victory. I've heard there's talk of another game in the Fall to determine the ultimate winner.
Although, if you ask me, I'd love to see Sandlot Memphis continue for a long time. I had a whole lot of fun hanging out on the sidelines, meeting new people, and cheering for my zip code.
