Post your baseball resume here....

15 posts in this topic

After several postings on the "for those who play amateur baseball topic" I somehow managed to find three people who I knew, or someone we know in common. I thought it might be fun to see how many other current or former college or amateur players are on this site. Go ahead and list the teams you've played for and for what years. Here goes....

Itasca Community College 1999-2000

University of WI-Superior 2001-2002

Kimball Express (amateur) 1998-2001

Bayside Vipers (Superior, WI amateur) 2002-2004

No college ball for this guy.

Elk River Red Devils (1995-1997)

Nowthen Pioneers (1998-2000)

Elk River Elks (2001)

St. Francis Saints (2002-2008)

Princeton Panthers (2009)

Lot of great state tourney runs with Franny but could never win the big one. 2nd, couple of 3rds and a 4th. Little older now and am playing closer to home with Princeton.

Definitely have faced you Biff. I played for the Blaine Fusion from 04-06 and a few games the past couple of summers. I would be the tall lefty pitcher who SHUT YOU GUYS DOWN!!! Except for one time when you were shelling us at our park and I got some garbage innings, then you guys gave me some payback.

Yes. I think I can remember facing you. I could never pick the ball up out of your hand, you hid it so well. I was the #3 hitter. I could never hit you or Pat Lenton. Did he ever sign with the Braves?

Yep that would be me.

Not sure where Pat ended up - haven't talked to him since last summer. Those games with St. Francis were always the highlight of the season. Lots of trash talk and good games.

      I do not understand why people think Ripley is a Dead Sea or woods.  Populations go up and down winter controls deer numbers more than hunters.    I like this new Ripley I have shot a deer the last 3  years there. The best part is not as many other hunters!! But the does not help get the deer moving.

      Maybe, but the total kill and the kill of big bucks had been declining significantly before the tough winters hit.  Look at the kill stats from the early 2000s on.  Massive increase in doe harvest when bonus tags were allowed.  That, combined with wolf predation and winter drove the herd down extremely low.  IMVHO, you can't keep whacking the heck out of does when you have other very significant mortality factors at play.

      On a positive note, talking to one of the environmental staff this past June, he said they had been seeing more big bucks this year.  Hopefully one walks past me.:D

       

      Good luck everyone!

      Move slow, practice drawing and shooting from a seated postion, and have patience.  You can shoot a deer from 11 ft up for sure.

      Most of my stands are up 12-16 ft to platform.  I don't like heights much.

      Good luck.

      Anyfish2 has good advice!

      This isn't about other candidates.   This is about Johnson looking stupid on TV, twice in close succession.   

      Both showed total ignorance of the world.   And it's not just that he didn't recognize that Allepo had something to do with this thing going on in the middle east, or that he couldn't come up with the name of a foreign leader, but that he just sat there with a dumb look on his face and couldn't even think of something to say.   Maybe "Hey, how about them hawkeyes"  would have worked.   (I'll post the joke if you haven't heard it)

       

       

      Meh, like I said. His mistake was going into an open interview with questions that were never vetted and pre approved like traditionally happens and yeah, for that he and his campaign need to do better. Especially since he fell into it on the MSHRC network before. I agree 100% that he should either have been ready for something like this or made sure he knew what was coming before he agreed to do it. If course there is always the chance they agreed to the questions ahead of time and threw this in without him expecting it. 

       

      One way or the other he us taking questions that other candidates aren't and he is making himself available for questions that the other two aren't. This doesn't bother me at all. What I want to hear asked of the other candidates is how they are paying for what they are proposing and also if sending Americans to fight in the middle East is that important, are they willing to send their kids to do it.

    • I will never understand why anyone would take a trip to western NoDak before pheasant season opens up. That's the whole draw of that area! The duck hunting there isn't quite as good as other parts of the state, but it's the best area for chasing roosters
    • Oh so we shouldn't measure the candidates against each other, that makes perfect sense.

      Lesser of 3 evils!
    • Latest rooster update going to be a little tough here as a few guys finally chopped a little bit, usually by now silo's are full and done, we're still quite wet, beans none harvested, think the birds have more then enough cover, I just hope when the floods hit it didn't push the birds into areas with the predators also and or the water got lots of the young. Best hatch I've ever seen was this spring/summer in this area, but haven't seen much of them since about the July flood.
    • Awesome pictures ! Yes our flood in July plus rains since then have fields flooded and they are full of mallards and woodies. Neighbors are prepping for their ND run I'm like why drive to Williston this year ? I could limit out on mallards and woodies sitting by his mailbox every morning lol. They swim his ditch into the corn and back again, The geese are just kiddy corner and I offered to take him out in the AM no dice, I guess can't break tradition to ND
