The Midland RockHounds, a Double AA affiliate of the Oakland A's, play at First American Bank Ball Park which opened in 2002, seating 6,669. The RockHounds were playing the Frisco RoughRiders. Because Jim did not receive a response from his email to the team we almost didn't make the game. We were under the impression that the game started at 7:05pm. We arrived in Midland about 12:30. An hour later while eating our lunch at the motel Jim looked at a pocket schedule we had gotten at the Midland Information Center. He discovered that today was a day game for school students and the game had started at 11:00am. We rushed over to the stadium and found the game in progress in the bottom of the 6th inning. We were able to get in for free because the gates were open. The stadium is all seats with berm seating at the end of each baseline. There appeared to be a limited menu, but this may have been because it was a school day game. There is free parking and lots of it. The Rockhounds won 5-2. The box score was RoughRiders R-2, H-7, E-0 and RockHounds R-5, H-11, E-0. The field lines are RF & LF-322' and CF 410'. The mascot is Rocky. 2014 Security Bank Ballpark.

Sibley Nature Center If you're interested in the fauna and flora of our area here between the edge of the Great Plains and the desert, this site will give you an introduction to what the Sibley Nature Center does to educate children and adults on the subject of our environment. I'm helping to build this site, and we have plans to have it reflect the displays in the building, as well as provide a calendar of what-to-look-for in the area. The Center is located on the edge of Hogan Park, on Wadley between La Mesa and Fairgrounds. It includes nature trails that cross through many different environments.

Confederate Air Force Midland is the home of the Confederate Air Force and the American Heritage Airpower Museum, a place to find World War II air planes, many still flying, always in the process of being restored. There are many displays including pictoral histories, and once a year, in October, the Air Show brings pilots and fans from all over the world. This is a very thorough website representing the CAF, with lots of pictures, too.
