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

Progress Report On Dirtbags In Summer Leagues

I've kept you fairly up to date on Evan Longoria and Jared Hughes' performance in the Cape Cod Baseball League...both because of their league leading status on the Cape, and the ease of obtaining current stats. For some Dirtbags playing summer ball, I can't find any current stats (Sean Boatright, Jordan Struble, and Andrew Liebel). I can't even find where Jose Hernandez is playing! For the others, here's how they are doing (not including any games yesterday):

Chuck Sindlinger, with the Danville Dans in the Central Illinois Collegiate League is batting .353 (7th best in the league) over 24 games and 85 at bats. He's walked 20 times (#6 in the league), while striking out 18, posting a .486 on base percentage. Chuck is slugging at .541 (#7 in league), with 3 HR (#7 in league), 1 triple and 5 doubles. He's also posted 22 RBI (#3 in the league). He's scored the 2nd most runs in the league (24).

Brandon Godfrey, Matt Fitts and Brett Andrade are all with the Alaska Goldpanners in Fairbanks. Brandon is batting .244 (10 hits in 41 at bats, appearing in 13 of 36 games), with a .289 on base percentage (drawing 2 walks), and slugging at .390 (3 triples). Matt has started 6 games (with no relief appearances), and pitched 33.1 innings. He's 3-2, with a 4.05 ERA, and has struck out 33 with walking 10. Opponents are batting .250 against him. Brett has also been impressive in 8 relief appearances, going 18.1 innings. He stands at 0-0, with a 1.47 ERA, and 4 saves. He's struck out 14 while walking 5, and opponents are batting .250.

Donnie Hume is with the Solano Thunderbirds in the California Coastal League. The only information available is box scores, and these do not appear in standard, or even consistent, format. From the box scores, Donnie has appeared in 5 games, starting 3, and pitched 24 innings. He's 4-0, and has allowed only 2 runs, though it's not recorded whether they were earned. If they were, his ERA is 0.75. Donnie has struck out 17, while walking 11. I estimate his opponents' batting average at .138 (1 box score doesn't indicate how many at bats to attribute between pitchers). All in all, he appears to be having an excellent summer.

Update: Reader Kurt advises that Jose Hernandez, Sean Boatright, Jordan Struble and former Dirtbag Cole Jacobsen are helping out with the Dirtbags Summer Baseball Camps, so they may not be playing much summer ball.
