    Creepiest surf spots

    ^Yes, those boils on the left at Davenport make it the creepiest local spot for me. I don't mind padding Waddell during the pre-dawn dark but those boils at Davenport can do weird stuff between waves — water suddenly surging burping up...ugh.

    MLB Official thread 2020

    Wow - straight up Little League ending. Not sure if it would have made a difference but Jensen needs to be backing up the catcher in that situation. Pitchers can get lazy.
