Lake Tomahawk Hosts Snowshoe BaseballSubmitted: 02/10/2013
Story By Ryan Abney

LAKE TOMAHAWK - Anyone who thinks baseball is just a summer sport hasn't been to Winterfest in Lake Tomahawk. For the second year, a nice crowd showed up for snowshoe baseball.

There were plenty of laughs to go around as players took big swings---and big falls.

Winterfest Director Liz Taylor says the event is a big hit with fans.

"It's how the community gets involved. We all pull together to raise a lot of money, last year we raised over 4-thousand dollars and this year we're hoping to do the exact same thing."

Seeing players eat snow is a great time for fans--but maybe even better for players. Donavin Moore played on Sunday. He said you can't be prideful when participating in this game.

"It's not easy to stand up on snowshoes it's an art. You have to slide your feet. And you do fall no matter how good you are."
