Tucked away in a campground on the shores of Ruth Lake on the Mad River in Northern California, Mad River Cathedral is a tight quarters field with a very unique outfield. A dry creek ran across the entire outfield and was used as the Grand Salami Zone. Beyond the creek the outfield sloped up to the road above.
The Grand Salami Zone was close enough to home that it became a very manageable target, many players hit balls over the creek. And one, Chris, was able to land a beercone in the creek for the game’s first Grand Salami.
