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.
The Giants and Rangers lined up for the National Anthem, sung by Kelly Clarkson.
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!
Courtesy of our good friend and colleague Todd Brommelkamp, here’s video of the Tim Morris-to-Forrest Snow putout at first base that clinched the West Division Title:
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.
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:

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:
Parkview 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.
