2011 Project 365 - MyLeroyPhotography

The baseball team is cooking Boston butts tonight. Dave and I stopped by the pit on our way home from Mobile so we could pick up the ones I'll deliver to work tomorrow. I felt like a fish out of water because this is "man land"; there were no other women around. Dozens and dozens of men and teenage boys were working hard in the freezing temperature feeding the fires, shoveling coal, and putting on and taking off butts. They'll be there all night. Coach Braun said they were cooking 704 butts. I guess it's a good thing I'm of the "female persuasion" because I'll be in my nice warm bed fast asleep.
