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.

    • Three favorites at the moment.  By the time they upload, I may change my mind.
    • A few from Maplewood State Park on April 16th.  Non-professional, but they stood still long enough for me to get 'em.
    • You might be able to figure things out this week.  How big is your sump basket?  Is the  pump kicking in now?  Sit there for 15 minutes and count the number of times it cycles.  That should give you a decent idea on how much water is coming in.  Then figure out about how high the water has to go before it flows by gravity.  The spec for the pump will say something like that it can pump 2,000 gph at 10 feet of lift.  (the gph drops dramatically the higher it has to pump the water).  The answer to your specifics will give you an idea of how big of a pump you need.  If you match the size of the pump as close as possible to the amount of water your will face you can maximize the amount of time the battery backup will last.   Faced with this problem I took a standard boat sump pump and modified it so I could hook up a garden hose.  The I took an old shop extension cord and wired the pump so I could hook it up to a car in the garage.  So just prior to having Noah float by I could hook things up in the garage and be good to go for as long as I had gas in the car to pump up the battery.   Now that I am adult I bought a generator and wired the house to take care of things.
    • Inevitably at least twice each season I will leave the house, drive 45 minutes and walk some of my favorite grouse spots for hours and hours, seeing nothing.  Admitting defeat on that day, I will drive 45 minutes back home, only to find a covey of birds in the driveway...
    • Colonel E.H. Taylor Small Batch Maker's Maker's 46 Bulleit Glenmorangie Highland Single Malt   Copperwing Distillery in St. Louis Park has a nice smooth whiskey. Supposed to introduce a new bourbon in a couple weeks too.
    • Hey featherslayer, you gonna register that nice bird of yours pretty soon?
    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.
