Brothers Levi, Blake and Noah Ashmore scramble around an empty baseball field thats still lit up at night for a crowd thats already made its way out after a sweep by the Iola Indians that signals, perhaps, good things to come.
Each brother is doing his part to clean up the Allen Community College field along with the Indians two other coaches and one or two other players that havent yet split.
Levi rides the tractor to drag the infield while Blake and Noah grab bases to take back to the dugout. Its an arrangement theyve become familiar with for most of their lives. The Ashmore brothers have been bonded by blood and, maybe more importantly, by baseball.
