Also this weekend, the Marfa Yonke Gallos hosted the Austin Texas Playboys for their annual baseball game at Vizcaino Park on Saturday, as a part of the El Cosmico Trans-Pecos Gathering of Music & Love. The game featured a particularly inspiring tribute to Beyonce, spearheaded by a dancing squirrel. Marfa pulled the win against Austin, with those in attendance reporting a score of approximately 26-5. Official scorekeeping, however, was decidedly questionable.
