Welcome to Dirtbags Baseball blog! I was introduced to Long Beach State baseball in 2002 when my nephew, Neil Jamison, joined the team (and university) as a freshman. I started the blog in March of 2004, and generally discuss the team, current players and those that have moved on to professional baseball - as Neil has done in the San Diego Padres organization. Living in San Diego County, and with Neil moving to the next level, I won't be attending as many Dirtbags games. But, mostly from a distance, I'll remain a Dirtbags fan. I welcome tips on stories and information concerning the Dirtbags (current, past and future). I can be contacted at

The (A Stanford Sports Site) On Regional Projections

Here are Joe Ritzo of The's picks for regional #1s as of today"

""Super Sixteen"

Record Pvs.
1. Texas 48-11 3
* Longhorns in the top spot after impressive 2-of-3 series win over Texas A&M.

2. Stanford 42-11 1
* Cardinal fall back after 3-2 week that includes losses to Arizona and USC.

3. Miami 41-11 2
* Hurricanes sweep Ball State at home over the weekend.

4. LSU 41-15 4
* Tigers may not have won the SEC (finished one game back in a crowded top six), but this team looks to have the best shot at a title of any team in the conference ... huge 2-of-3 series win at Mississippi last weekend.

5. East Carolina 47-9 5
* Pirates secure Conference USA title with impressive 2-of-3 series win at Southern Mississippi.

6. Arizona State 39-14 10
* Sun Devils move up after 4-1 week that includes series win at Arizona.

7. Rice 40-11 6
* Owls notch a big midweek win at Baylor, but then drop 2-of-3 at Fresno State over the weekend.

8. South Carolina 41-15 7
* Gamecocks fall back after losing 2-of-3 at SEC East champion Georgia (Bulldogs finished two games ahead of S. Carolina).

9. Arkansas 37-19 14
* Hogs win the SEC West (one game ahead of LSU and Mississippi) after winning 2-of-3 at home versus Auburn.

10. Virginia 42-11 13
* Cavs win a pair of midweek games over Radford and then take the weekend off.

11. CS Fullerton 36-20 NR
* Titans back in the top 16 after sweeping Long Beach State on the road to win the Big West.

12. Long Beach State 36-16 8
* 49ers swept at home by Fullerton ... huge series at Miami on tap for this weekend.

13. Tulane 38-17 9
* Green Wave lose 2-of-3 at Houston in a hard-fought series.

14. Washington 34-18-1 11
* Huskies fall back after dropping 2-of-3 at home to UCLA.

15. Georgia Tech 38-17 15
* Jackets claim ACC title after easily sweeping Maryland (finished 1/2 game ahead of Virginia although the Cavs swept GT back in March).

16. Mississippi 39-17 12
* Rebels lose 2-of-3 at home to LSU (blown out in the two losses).

Dropped Out: Notre Dame (46-10, 4-1 last week)"

Joe Ritzo goes on with this analysis:

"As for projecting who could be sent Stanford's way for the regionals, I see a few possible scenarios....

The third and final team seems to always be from the Big West. In 2003, UC Riverside was sent to Sunken. In 2002, both Long Beach State and Cal State Fullerton were sent here. Fullerton should host a regional, so they are out of the picture. One very dangerous possibility is Long Beach State as the #2 seed at Sunken Diamond. The Beach were a top 10 team and a legitimate national seed contender before getting swept by Fullerton last week. Now even just hosting a sub-regional is very much in question for them. It wouldn't be shocking if LBSU is again sent our way and I would imagine Jered Weaver would be held out of their Friday first round game for a potential matchup with Stanford in the all-important Saturday contest.

Stanford fans should hope that Long Beach takes care of business (i.e. wins 2-of-3) at Miami this weekend to get a nice RPI boost and further strengthen their chances of hosting a regional."

We hope so too Joe! Read the entire piece here.
