Plans are already in place for the forthcoming NWBC Baseball Convention which will again be held at the Embassy Suites PDX from January 14-16, 2011.  The annual NW Baseball convention brings together coaches from all levels in Washington, Oregon and Idaho.. This year, a special invitation has gone out to our Canadian neighbors in the B.C. area as well.. The convention, as you know, although focused directly to the high school coach has annually attracted a majority of the college coaches who either attend or participate as invited clinicians.. A special Sunday session is planned for the many volunteer coaches who coach in the summer and work with younger youth.  These specific coaches, parents, etc represent various communities throughout the region.  www.nwstar.net

DID YOU KNOW>>>Metal Bat rolling is a process that can add incredible pop and distance to any baseball bat. Everyone knows that bats get hotter after about 500-800 hits. The trouble is, by the time you have put that many hits on the bat it is well on itís way to being worn out. By rolling your bat you can enjoy the batís maximum potential from the very first swing without putting all the wear and tear on it. 

Just Google "bat rolling" see what's happening.

Do you want to play metal or Wood?

Community sports: Lampkin looking to score some funding
.By Paul Danzer
Columbian Staff Writer

Monday, December 21, 2009

Tradition says a column suggesting gift ideas would be appropriate this week.

Because I know readers of this column are smart and have completed their holiday shopping well before today, I will instead look ahead to several projects in the works for our community in the coming year.

Letís start with a party.

Tom Lampkin, the retired major league catcher who coaches Union High School baseball, is working to secure scoreboards for all of the varsity baseball and softball diamonds at the high schools of Evergreen Public Schools.

To do that, he has revived a popular event of a few years back.

The 2010 Western Night with the Stars will be held on Jan. 23 at the Clark County Fairgrounds to raise funds for the Clark County Youth Sports Foundation, a not-for-profit Lampkin helped found in 2003.

The foundation staged successful Western-themed dinner and auction events in 2003 and 2004. Money raised during those events funded grants that assisted some 30 Clark County organizations involved with youth sports.

The foundationís mission is to assist sports programs with facility and equipment improvements that make programs safer and more fun for kids.

After a less successful event in 2005, the CCYSF decided to take a break from fundraising projects.

The decision to try again started with Lampkinís desire to use some CCYSF funds to help improve the drainage at several area high school baseball diamonds ó including Unionís. When Lampkin learned that the Union project was covered by the school districtís long-range plan (and scheduled to be complete in time for the coming season) the foundationís board of directors turned to the idea of adding scoreboards at high school diamonds.

Lampkin hopes to clear the $80,000 needed to install eight scoreboards. He said the scoreboards will benefit youth teams as well as the high school programs, noting that club teams use the high school fields.

The CCYSF has lined up a band, an emcee, and a variety of auction items. As was the case at past parties, Lampkin has invited some of his baseball pals to appear ó though heís not ready to name names.

To learn more, or to buy a $55 ticket, visit the Clark County Youth Sports Foundation at www.ccysf.org.

Portland, OR North to Seattle for the 2009 4th of July Tournament.  We enjoyed a very long but competitive weekend of baseball. We were fortunate to have some very good pitching performances, recording the only two shutouts of the tournament one of our pitchers who played at Concordia chewed up a lot of innings for us. We qualified for Sunday play as the #2 seed in our bracket going 4-1 in pool play losing only our opener to the Mariners who also went 4-1 in pool play taking the #1 seed from our bracket by virtue of their Thursday win over us.  Our semi final game on Sunday was pretty intense. We had a squad of only 9 very tired guys and had to play the #1 seed from the other bracket.  We played a near flawless game taking a 2-0 lead against a fresh and very dominant pitcher. We got 5 solid innings from the Angels Jason Daily and brought in the kid from Concordia to close the 6th and 7th. He walks the leadoff hitter, give up a single and a 3 run bomb in the bottom of the 6th. We were down to our final 3 outs after playing so hard. We found a way to scratch out 3 runs in the top of the 7th and then shut the door in the bottom half to advance to the championship game.
 
The Astros as the #2 seed upset the Mariners, which was a little disappointing to us as we really wanted a shot at a rematch with the M's. At this point we have the same 9 guys only more tired and worn out. We lead the championship game most of the way and lose the lead on a suicide squeeze in the 6th. The game stayed tied at 4, when in the bottom of the 8th we try a steal of home with our leadoff guy. He is thrown out at the plate in a bang/bang play. We finally surrender a run in the 11th and leave the bases loaded in the bottom half of the 11th, missing the title by 90 feet. We didn't leave Seattle last night until about 5:30. Needless to say we're very tired today but I think better for the experience.  
Mike 

Hi Mike,

The Portland Beavers do not offer open tryouts for the team. As an affiliated professional baseball team, the Beavers have a player development agreement with a team from Major League Baseball (San Diego Padres). As such, all Beavers players are scouted, recruited and signed to contracts by the Padres, and then assigned to play in Portland.

Each season, the Padres conduct an open player tryout at PGE Park (usually in June). The tryout is not to recruit players to play for the Beavers, rather it is an opportunity for scouts to identify players they may want to sign at a later date to potentially play in the Padres minor league system.

The
2009 tryout will be held at PGE Park on June 26. Registration begins at 8 a.m. The tryout is open to players between the ages of 16 and 22 who were not drafted in the June draft. The tryout is free with no registration or tryout fees involved. Players participating in American Legion summer baseball must have a permission slip signed by a head coach or commander of the Legion post the player represents. All players under the age of 18 must supply a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian. The Padres and Beavers supply baseballs, batting helmets, wood bats and one set of catching gear. Participants are encouraged to bring their own wood bat, but no metal bats, and must supply all other playing equipment.

All participants must sign a waiver before taking part in the Padres tryout. Click here for a pdf release form.

The Major League Scouting Bureau conducts tryout camps around the country and can be reached at (909) 980-1881 for tryout information.

Independent Baseball

Do you miss the crack of a baseball rocketing off a WOOD BAT? Do you miss puttin' on metal spikes and gettin' dirty diving for that "web gem" play? Miss the thrill of blowing a fastball by a hitter? Getting mobbed by your team for that walk off hit that drives in the winning run? We play hard and we play to win but most importantly we have fun.

So if you are a former or current player who has what it takes to compete, EMAIL US NOW. We are gearing up for this season! Catchers, Pitchers, and Hitters welcome! Tryout now!

Do you have what it takes to manage a new group of players, to motivate a team, to mold their passion into a winning state, email me a short resume on how you would work with your team.
