Flames pulled off 5 double plays today, including a couple of spectacular ones.

SS McClain O'Connor (UCSB) dove into the whole to make an impossible stop and threw a perfect relay to second baseman who made perfect exchange and those to first to nab the runner. Prettiest play I have seen in some time.

Pitcher Gunnar Groen (Pepperdine) threw a 2-hitter for 7 innings in the high temp and humidity on the OCC turf. Used only 86 pitches of which 51 were strikes. League leading ERA of 1.67. Flames bullpen finished up.

These kids are good.

Have you ever had any players on your team make the big league?
We have only owned the team for two years. The previous owner has Tim Locastro LA Dodgers. Tim has been up and down to the Show and AAA.

We had several prospects last year eligible for the draft next year. This year we have a few real MLB prospects.
The Leagues have many.

Keep us informed. I have nothing going on this weekend. Maybe I’ll run up there.
