The Yuma Scorpions, a team in the independent Golden Baseball League (GBL), play at Desert Sun Stadium which was built in 1969 with a capacity of 10,500. It was the spring training facility of the San Diego Padres from 1969 to 1993. The field lines are RF-335', CF-410', and LF-335". The temperature at the start of the game was 107 degrees and at the end 93 degrees. The Scorpions were playing the Orange County Flyers and were successful winning 4-3. The box score was Flyers R-3, H-7, E-2 and Stingers R-4. H-6, E-1. The Stingers won with a suicide squeeze in the bottom of the 9th inning. Over the area between the dugouts are misters and fans, which really keep the heat down for those sitting under them. Stinger is the Scorpion mascot. For this first time ever we saw a fan trying to hit a pitch thrown by the home team pitcher as a between inning activity. Tonight there were a group of Marines form Yuma Marine Corps Air Station attending the game. One of the Marines was chosen to be the batter. The pitcher lobbed in the ball and the Marine didn't come close to hitting it before striking out. There are two suites in the pressbox area behind home. 2011 moves to North American League when GBL merges. Team folded in 2011.
