Which league?


So I went to a playoff game for them today. Apparently it's not a 'national' league. It's just a city of Long Beach league. Talent was legit though. Play at some prime fields too - Blair Field(where Long Beach St plays their home games), Long Beach City College(state champs a couple years ago, and where I use to attend), Wilson High School(big time national program - Aaron Hicks and Sean Burroughs attended), and Long Beach State's practice field, which is on campus. Pretty pumped about that.

The kid that played pro ball at one point pitched 3 innings today. Struck out the first 7 he faced, then got two pop ups. He had very good numbers in the minors before getting hurt. Had Tommy John, and upon returning, blew out his shoulder. Tough blow and he never made it back. Looked pretty good today.

Yes. I live in Orange County, but grew up in the Long Beach area.

Why are you a Nats fan? Just curious.

Never been a Dodger fan, and always rooted for teams with young players(I am a Clipper fan and a Patriot fan as well - Pats fan since they drafted Drew Bledsoe and Ben Coates). The Expos were playing the Dodgers one day during Rondell White's rookie season and he hit a bomb with 7 rbi, driving in all 7 runs in a win over the Dodgers. He immediately became my favorite player and the Expos my favorite team. It's stuck with me since then. White's still my favorite baseball player ever.

Anyone up for a trip to New York's Capital Region?  We're looking for a couple of players for the Labor Day Weekend Tournament for our team.  I can house a couple of players.  :P

Double header sweep, the last of which was in walk-off error fashion!  That's always fun.  Won the first in a laugher and I think it carried over to the second game a bit though.  Had to rally for 3 in the last of the 7th...

Coed team can't catch a break.  We'll play really well for 6 innings then find a way to give the game away or can't get a hit with the bases loaded to win.  So frustrating.  They're a lot of fun to play with but I want to win a game or two at some point...

Thanks all.  Only problem is, I don't know what to do with the sincerity of blue.  I demand he insults me right now so I know all is right with the world.

That's a way better looking piece of hardware than the Commissioner's Trophy.

Congrats.

The team Im slated to play on won their championship.

I expect my first game back to be 9/25. Im coming off a broken foot and expect to be cleared this Monday. It's going to be weird getting back up on the bump after two years off. But Im looking forward to it.

We definitely need to get a game together next year.

Yes sir. Ive evolved into a gold glove caliber first baseman and a servicable OF on the days the shoulder can't handle the mound, but I make Matt Stairs look pretty good at the plate.

not how I wanted the season to end.  Rough night.  Couldn't get the glove to work at all.  Really frustrating.
