With some crowded state-tournament high-school baseball and softball playoff games in recent days, some fans found creative ways to watch the action from beyond the outfield fences, like climbing trees beyond the fence at Lake Braddock Secondary School.
Others looked under or through the windscreens fastened to the outfield fence of the Madison High baseball field. Others gathered in the front yard of a far-away house to watch, which was located directly down and beyond the left-field line at Madison. Many others gathered on a hill in center and right fields to watch.
Also at Madison along the right-field and first base areas, spectators sat or stood on hoods or tops of cars and trucks in parking lots to watch.
At South County High for a girls softball game, a big field in left field was a popular spot to watch.
Whatever or wherever it took or was, spectators found a way to watch those state playoff games.
