Make Baseball Fun Again

Baseball fans were treated to an October playoff game in March as the Dominican Republic came back from five runs down in sixth inning to beat the United States seven to five in the World Baseball Classic.

Besides the classic comeback, there was something else I noticed that made the game even more special. It was the passion of the Dominican Republic fans before, during, and after the game.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports expressed this an article last night,  “(the passion) was evident Saturday night, when the largest crowd ever to see a baseball game at Marlins Park came equipped with hundreds of literal Banderas Dominicanas and drums and horns and whistles and the spirit of a tiny, poor, proud island nation ready to topple the one that created the game.”

All sorts of rules are being considered to speed up baseball games to appeal to younger fans.  Runners placed on second in extra innings, fewer pitching changes, and other rules would speed up a game, but maybe Major League Baseball should think in a different direction.

Imagine coming to Dodger Stadium with horns, drums, and whistles. cropped-dodgerstadiumbanner.jpg

Imagine celebrations of homers like Manny Machado, Nelson Cruz, and Starling Marte’s where the entire bench welcomed them at home plate.

Now imagine security taking away the horns, drums, and whistles upon entering the stadium since they would ruin the experience of other fans. Imagine MLB pitchers beaning the next batter for a home run celebration for showing them up, an unwritten rule of the game.

Baseball needs more bat flips from Jose Bautista and Yasiel Puig. Baseball needs more fans breaking into loud songs in unison.

Baseball is fun already for true fans, but it could try to be even more fun for future fans.

A Pac 12 Softball Team Will Win WCWS

I’ve had a chance to call a few #UCLA, #Washington, #California, and #ArizonaState softball games and I truly believe a #Pac12 team will win the Women’s College World Series this year.

Any team that wins enough battles to win the war that is Pac 12 league play will be battle tested enough to roll teams from the Big 12, SEC, and the Big Ten.

In my opinion, the team left standing after the brutal conference schedule should be in the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City June 1-7.

Battles begin next weekend with each of the top Pac 12 teams facing tough tests.

ucla-softball_0006#4 Oregon is the highest ranked team in the conference and undefeated. They will face the speedy #23 Cal Golden Bears next week providing their toughest competition yet.

#8 Washington beat #2 Auburn in their first game of the season and went 4-1 in the Mary Nutter Classic. They open up league play with #21 Arizona State at home next week.

#20 Utah and #10 UCLA will face off in Los Angeles starting on Friday.

#5 Arizona will have to travel to Corvallis to take on a tough Oregon State team trying to break into the list of elite teams in the conference.

1 Florida State (17) 778 17-1-1 1
2 Auburn (2) 742 19-2 2

Colonials Capture California Winter League Title

Two Palm Springs teams were in the final four of the California Winter League playoffs only to be beaten by the same team.

The fourth seeded New York Colonials upset both teams and won the California Winter League championship by beating the Palm Springs Chill 10-3.

This game was essentially over after two innings. The Colonials jumped out to a 9-0 lead going into the bottom of the 2nd.

Edgar Lebron Jr. started the onslaught with a triple to drive in two.  Lebron ended the day with four RBIs.

Palm Springs got runners in scoring position in the first three innings, but could not get the key hit to create a long rally to put them back into the game.

The Chill cut the lead to 9-3 and Dakota Freese kept the Colonials off the board with a strong relief appearance fanning five in his three innings of pitching.

But Colonials pitcher Dylan Thompson was even more impressive. He went six strong innings only giving up one earned run to earn the victory.

Power Eliminated in Semifinals

In an offensive battle, the New York Colonials eliminated the top seed Palm Springs Power today nine to six.

The Colonials jumped out to a five nothing lead in the bottom of the first. Kalani Brackenridge singled in two runs in the inning and finished with three RBIs.cwl-logo-black-text-thumbnail

The Power erased the lead in the next two innings with one in the first and four in the second. Nicholas Buckner led off the second with a mammoth solo shot to center.

Pitching took over the next few innings as the teams were tied at six going into the final inning. Martin Windisch threw six innings for the Power only allowing one earned run.

Errors in the top of the sixth by the Power allowed three Colonials to score.

Kyano Cummings shut down the Power 1-2-3 in the seventh as the Colonials won nine to six.

The Colonials will move onto play the Palm Springs Chill in the California Winter League finals at noon on Sunday.
