Nick Little, second from right, tosses a baseball on the dugout steps during a game the Rock Bridge team plays to pass time during a rain delay on Friday afternoon. The goal of the game is to toss the ball onto the steps, and depending on the step it lands on and sticks, it correlates to a base, just like baseball.
Nick Little, a second basemen for Rock Bridge, tosses a baseball on the steps of the dugout during a minigame the team played during Friday's rain delay. The goal of the game is to get the ball to rest on a higher step. Like a modified game of baseball, the first step counts as first base, second step as second base, and if it can rest on the top step without rolling into the turf, it counts as a home run. Some team members have been playing it since the seniors were freshman.
