Clark County Young Champions

Student Athlete Heart Screenings. Our young athletes have got heart, and the Quinn Driscoll Foundation along with PeaceHealth Southwest Medical Center want to be sure it keeps beating strong! On Saturday, February 20, 2016 Southwest’s Heart and Vascular Center and the Quinn Driscoll Foundation are offering Young Champions Heart Screenings.

The Quinn Driscoll Foundation is named for 13-year-old Quinn Driscoll, a student athlete at Wy’ East Middle School who died in 2009 after suffering cardiac arrest while running on the track during gym class. It is believed that a heart condition can exist in roughly 1 out of 500 individuals, and approximately one case of sudden cardiac death occurs every three days in organized youth sports across the United States.

Those are crazy numbers. But there’s a resource to help.

Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Old Fashioned Baseball Game at Fort Vancouver.

The Vancouver Occidentals are Vancouver’s original baseball team, and they are ready to play some ball! It’s baseball, 1860’s style, and you can “catch” it on Saturday, July 21, 2012. Game time begins at 6 pm and lasts about 2 hours.

You will think you stepped back in time at this Vintage Baseball Game played at Fort Vancouver. Not only are the players in costume, even the fans get into character. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, and even the band, dressed in 1860’s attire.

This gloveless game with wooden bats is played by very different rules. “Striker to the line”, means the batter is up. He takes a couple of practice swings and then shows the hurler (pitcher) where he would like the ball. The ball is pitched underhand and it is the job of the hurler to get the ball into play. There are no strikes, no balls and a batter can only “strike out” if he swings and misses at three pitches. Also a ball caught after the first bounce is also considered an out. It was a real gentleman’s game played just for fun.
