The Dune Sea

The Dune Sea, located at scenic Pismo Beach, was the third beach field to be played on at California’s Central Coast. It was the site for the opening series of Tapey Beercone’s fifth season. The field gets it’s name from the tall sand dunes which begin in its outfield and stretch on for miles into the distance.

The Dune Sea, like most beach fields, is flat and relatively unencumbered by obstacles with a wide playing area. The dunes, which start in the deep outfield present a challenge for fielders, and any ball hit far enough would pass over the first set of dunes and land is a low lying, muddy depression for an almost guaranteed home run. The chosen Grand Salami Zone was a larger patch of ice plant growing from one of the dunes in center field.
