Summer League Baseball: Alex Berta

Well as our season is coming to a close so is my blogging career. Since Steve last blogged we have been playing well. Our record currently sits at 24-9. We have been in a number of “round robin” tournaments over the past couple weekends within our league and also with non-league teams. This past weekend was spent in Bend, Oregon.

Going to Bend was a pretty neat experience. It is a nice city stuck in the middle of a couple of mountains. It gets very hot there and is very dry. The team that was hosting the tournament is part of the Pacific Coast League. We played the host team, the Bend Elks of Friday night. There were about 1,600 fans there. It was a great atmosphere for a game and the weather couldn’t have been better. We ended up beating them 10-6. It was a great win for our team because it was against a team that was full of Oregon State, University of Washington, and Santa Clara University players among others. The rest of the weekend went well as we were 2-1 after that.

This week we are heading as a team to Seattle to watch the Mariners take on the Boston Red Sox. Steve is wearing his Manny jersey to off-set his mohawk that I disapprove of. I think it must be his way of dealing with not being able to watch the Cubs every day.

We have about two more weeks of baseball left to play here in the Northwest. We play some games at home before we head to California to finish the season in Humboldt and Yuba City. Steve and I are going to leave for our road trip home from California. We are planning on catching a San Francisco Giants game as well as Colorado Rockies game on the way.

Overall the experience has been great. We couldn’t ask for anything more out of it. The time definitely flew by and we're trying to enjoy it as much as possible.
