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.

Sorry forgot to list my affiliations:

Augustana College - '03-'05

Blaine Fusion - '04-'06 (still pitch a couple of games a summer, but my shoulder is pretty much shot)

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.

First Ice Mike, did you play w/ a guy named Arnold @ UMC? A few buddies from HS played football there at the same time. Brandt, Massmann, Stelten.

    • We live in some sort of Bizarro world now - Sarah Palin calling Trump sinfully stupid.     Here's another one from Ann Coulter, who literally wrote a book "In Trump We Trust"    
    • You do realize that if the taxes were done that way, the cities would get $2.53 billion richer, and rural areas would get $2.53 billion poorer. The 7 county metro pays substantially more taxes (nearly 2/3 of the states total) than the other 80 counties in Minnesota combined, but only receives roughly half of the state expenditures.   Sorry to break it to you, but rural America is not fiscally solvent. Those citiots you speak of are bankrolling the entire country. It's easy to see on this chart: more urban states are to the left (givers) and more rural states are to the right (takers).  
    • I tried to purchase the screws yetti uses from Fastenal who is their vendor for the screws. They are only sold in large reels designed for a self loading screwgun. I finally called Casey at Glacial lake docks where I purchased my yetti and he sent me out the amount I needed. They work great to add additional fir strips. The plastic used to tie them together comes right off as you screw them in. Hope that helps. 
    • Sorry...was wrong on the specs.   Manufacturer is Core Ice.  It was 1450# for a 12' and 1250# for a 8'.  
    • I believe you want to use a zinc coated or galvanized steel according to the charts.  I'm sure someone will come along to correct me
    • In the back room there is a company that is using bonded foam panels (similar to garage door panels, but really clean looking), and had weights of 1250# for a 12' and 1450# for a 16'.  Aluminum trailer frames that could convert to a skid frame.  Can't recall the name.  I'm sure they were spendy, but I can see a concept like that going somewhere for the hardcore fishing crowd.   Yetti, Firebrand, Big Bite, and Glacier all had really nice display models.      Lots of campers (disguised as fish houses) out there at prices that make me want to jump into the business.  I was in two different manufacturers houses with prices well over $30k that had wire nuts for connections.  That is going to be a fun adventure for someone 2-3 years down the road when they find out their manufacturer saved $15 on their wiring.           
    • Thank you for all the help!  Ended up going with the Marcum VS485C.  After some research, there were a few other Marcums that were on the list (825 & 625), the Aqua Vu HD, and the Pan Cam.  The mini cams from all manufactures weren't what I was looking for, but they are cool and do have their place.     After seeing everything in person, I think the Aqua Vu HD had the best camera/screen.  The Marcums were a little bit behind, but the 825, 625, 485, and Pan Cam had similar real life clarity.  The 485 won out because of the $300 price point vs the others at $450-700, and was almost identical for resolution, other than the HD.
      I honestly think these cameras are all about 5+ years behind in technology in comparison to the broader camera/tv screen market.  Running off a 7-9ah battery is probably one of the limiting factors.  Another may be the cold.  The main reason (IMO) is that the manufacturers are hoping they can incrementally rape us by trickling out technology each year, similar to the computer manufacturers of the 90s/early 2000's.  For the price of a middle of the road underwater camera, I can buy a Chinese made 50" TV (these all have Chinese made 5-8" screens) and a GoPro or Sony Action Cam (which is 10x's the picture quality).
