Scenes from Game 3 of the World Series

100_2108.JPGI went on a very unexpected last-minute trip this weekend.  To Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas, to Game 3 of the World Series.

Myself, along with our General Manager Ted Tornow and Assistant GM Nate Kreinbrink embarked on a 14-hour drive from Clinton to the greater Dallas area to watch five former LumberKings as they suited up for the Rangers in the first-ever World Series game played in the city of Arlington.

Colby Lewis delivers the first pitch of Game 3 to Andres Torres of the San Francisco Giants.

We were not disappointed, and neither was the record crowd of 54,000-plus.  Former Kings’ first-baseman Mitch Moreland ripped a three-run blast in the second inning, supporting nearly eight innings of solid work from right-hander Colby Lewis.  Former Kings’ right-hander Neftali Feliz then worked a perfect ninth inning to nail down the first-ever Rangers’ World Series win and his first postseason save.  The atmosphere was absolutely electric from the moment we got there to the moment we left.

I recorded some great video of Moreland’s home run, Feliz’s save and a few other things in between.  Enjoy.

Thanks again to our contacts with the Rangers for setting us up, we had a blast.  Too bad we couldn’t stick around for the other two games.  Let’s hope for a Ranger win tonight in Game 5 to send the series back to San Francisco!

Video Feature: Zambrano Rehab Start

I did shoot a bit of video at the conclusion of Carlos Zambrano’s rehab start on Thursday just for the heck of it.  I wasn’t originally planning on posting it, but I did like how this video shows the action and also catches my play-by-play fairly clearly.  Plus, I haven’t been doing much video content on here lately, and it’s not everyday that your team faces someone with big-league service time.

In the video (just over a minute long), Daniel Carroll moves to third on a wild pitch and Kyle Seager strikes out to end the inning.  I’m a bit drowned out by the 7,600-plus that gave Zambrano a standing ovation at the end.

More video to come before the conclusion of this season, I promise.

Six-Game Trip Starts in Lansing

100_1021.JPG
The LumberKings completed the eight-day homestand with a 5-3 record thanks to last night’s thrilling 3-2 win over the West Michigan Whitecaps.  Blake Ochoa tripled with two outs off left-hander Tyler Conn and Welington Dotel came through with his biggest hit since joining Clinton, an RBI double off the wood wall in left-center.  Read more in tonight’s notes:

Highlights from last night:

A six-game, two-city road trip begins tonight as the Kings head to Lansing to take on the Lugnuts.  We arrived at the ballpark at 5:00 PM eastern time for a 7:05 start, so there will be no pregame interview today.  Instead, enjoy this very brief video of Oldsmobile Park:

More Views from Parkview Field

100_0991.JPGParkview Field greeted the LumberKings rudely last night as the Fort Wayne TinCaps won, 3-1 on the strength of home runs by Brayden Drake and Robert Lara.  You can read more here in today’s notes:

Still, it’s a beautiful place.  Some more video from my excursions through the Midwest League’s newest ballpark:

I apologize for the Blair-Witchyness of the videos, my new video recorder doesn’t have a steadycam function and apparently I didn’t learn anything from the “film” side of my communications degree (other than the sweet fades, titles and edits).

On to the interview.  I catch up with Fort Wayne TinCaps’ radio voice Dan Watson to talk about the new ballpark, the league’s best team and more.
