Gettin' Ziggy With It (Season 2, cont.)


Hey, everyone! Sorry this wasn't posted earlier this morning...I've been a little under-the-weather the last few days, and I slept in later than I anticipated...but better late than never, I hope! ...

Gettin' Ziggy With It (Season 2, Vol. 6)


Hey, everyone! Well, I can honestly say my life has slowed back down a little, and I’ve been able to relax a lot more since I last wrote. I’m getting used to the scheduling, and I’ve been able to...

Gettin' Ziggy With It (Season 2, Vol. 5)


Hey, everyone! What an exciting month it’s been since I’ve been in Oakland. It’s been such a whirlwind of emotion, as well as a drastic increase in appointments and other things to do over the...

RIVER CATS: AAA CHAMPS! AAA Champions! It has a nice ring to it. Even though I don’t believe you can determine a champion in baseball by a 1-game playoff, the t-shirts we got after winning the...

Gettin' Ziggy With It (Vol. 24)


RIVER CATS WIN THE PCL!!! That’s right, we did it! We came back from an 0-2 deficit against Salt Lake City to win the opening series in 5 games. Then we carried that momentum to a 3-game sweep...

Hello, everyone! First of all, let me apologize for not posting in so long. I’ve had a lot going on (on AND off the field), and things are just now starting to return to the normal, hectic state of...

Gettin' Ziggy With It (vol. 18)


Hey, everyone! It’s been a frustrating week-and-a-half for me since I last posted. I’ve faced some serious adversity on the field, having my worst stretch of the season. It all started in Tucson, a...
