Morro Bay Tapey Beercone Beercomplex

The Morro Bay Tapey Beercone Beer Complex, first used during Season 2, includes two storied Tapey Beercone fields, with the potential for additional fields over the many miles of beach along the bay shore.

Plover Rock Field

The first field to be created at the site, Plover Rock field was also the first site for a regular two team Tapey Beercone game at a beach field. The field is named in honor of the massive 600 foot tall Morro Rock which sits about a mile to the south. Plover Rock Field was a simple field, with piles of seaweed used for bases and only the ocean as a limit to how far back a ball could be fielded.

Bridgeside Beach

Bridge Side beach was next created at the site for an epic two game series during the second half of Season 3. The field is named after the nearby Toro Creek Overcrossing, Bridge 49-68 of California State Route 1. Bridgeside Beach was also the first field to utilize a Mobile Backstop Net. Unlike Plover Rock Field, Bridgeside Beach was situated far enough away from the ocean’s breakers that there was effectively no limit to how far off the outfield stretched.
