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

Minor League Reports On Former Dirtbags

From (read it here):

"WILLIAMSPORT CROSSCUTTERS: The Crosscutters earned six wins in eight outings this past week and are now just three games under .500 in the New York-Penn League standings at 29-32. Mike Hofius paced Williamsport this past week, going 8-for-19 with a home run and seven RBI. He is now batting .281 this season with five home runs and a team-best 27 RBI...."

From (read it here):

" GREENSBORO BATS: The Bats struggles continued this past week, as they dropped four of their seven outings. The team is still in the basement of the South Atlantic League's Southern Division second half standings at 20-35. Jason Vargas was certainly a bright spot for the Bats this past week, as he allowed just one earned run on only three hits in eight innings of a 2-1 victory over Savannah on August 21st...."

From (read it here):

"Class AAA Tacoma Rainiers: Despite a roster that has been raided by the Mariners, the Rainiers entered the weekend 70-53 and a half game ahead of Portland in the Pacific Coast League North.

...Outfielder Jeremy Reed, after 44 games since arriving in the Freddy Garcia trade, was batting .309 with four home runs and 30 RBI. Third baseman Greg Dobbs was hitting .286, ..."

From (read it here):

"...Double-A West Tenn pitchers Sean Marshall, Jae Kuk Ryu and Russ Rohlicek are among the players in the Cubs organization who will play for the Mesa Solar Sox in the Arizona Fall League..."

From (read it here):

"NEW BRITAIN ROCK CATS - With the contest scheduled for August 11 against Akron and an off day on August 15, the Rock Cats played just five games, posting a 3-2 record. Bryan Kennedy led the way with a .462 average in 13 plate appearances..."

From (read it here):

"LAKE ELSINORE STORM - The Storm broke a four-game slide on August 16th with a 2-1 win over Rancho Cucamonga. ...Paul McAnulty accounted for one of the home runs, knocked in four and scored a team-high five runs...."

Paul has hit 22 homers, while batting .303 in 120 games (446 at bats) for the Class A Advanced Lake Elsinor Storm (San Diego). Read current stats here.

McAnulty and Adam Heether are showing how tough Blair Field is on power hitters. Though hitting .248, Heether has belted 16 homeruns for the Class A Beloit Snappers in the Midwest League (Milwaukee). Read current stats here.

From (read it here):

"CAPITAL CITY BOMBERS: With wins in six of their seven outings this past week, the Bombers opened up a 2 1/2 game lead on Charleston-SC for first place in the South Atlantic League's Southern Division second half standings at 34-19. ...Carlos Muniz was also effective in relief, as he earned a win and a save with 3 1/3 scoreless innings of work. He is now 3-0 with five saves in 12 appearances for Capital City this season...."

Finally, here's an interesting story from involving Rolo Avila, who plays for the Bridgeport Bluefish in the independent Atlantic League:

"Editor's note: The "web site photographer" the writer referred to above is none other than Kevin Henthorne, one of the Atlantic League's two best pitchers this season (along with teammate Tim Cain). It just so happens that Henny has a passion for photography, and can be seen outside our dugout at virtually very game (except when he's pitching), snapping digital photos of all the interesting things that go on in the ballpark. At last Wednesday's game against the Long Island Ducks, he actually snapped a picture of Rolo Avila beating a throw to home plate, despite being called out by the umpire. After the inning, Henny showed the photo to the umpire who good-naturedly said: "I called him out. That's my story and I'm sticking to it." The good news is that we scored ten other runs that evening to beat the Ducks 10-8, and didn't need Rolo's run to emerge victorious."
