Special Olympics Volunteer

Jack spent the morning volunteering at a Special Olympics Softball tournament at Freedom Park. Along with the rest of the Outlaws Baseball players and coaches, he groomed the fields, kept score, announced the batters and served as a bat boy. Arriving at 7:30 a.m., it was after 12:30 p.m. by the time he left.

While Jack worked the event, I ended up following the railroad tracks all the way to Auburn. I had originally intended just to look for the transcontinental railroad historical marker in Roseville, but ended up leapfrogging from Roseville to Rocklin to Newcastle to Auburn. Along the way, I also stopped at California Historic Markers for the Griffin Quarry, the town of Ophir and the City of Auburn.
