2013 Hawaii - Day Six - Na Pali Coast






Another early morning. The plan for the day was to cruise and snorkel the Na Pali coast. We had to be at Na Pali Coast Catamaran at 6:45 am. We got there about 15 minutes early and walked around the corner to a small cafe for a quick bite to eat.

They loaded us in a van, took us to an outrigger and then shuttled us out to the boat. We spent the rest of the morning cruising along the coast. They took the boat deep into four different sea caves, including the second longest sea cave in the United States. It was a very cool trip. The scenery is unlike any that I think I have ever seen.

Just before lunch, they stopped off and we snorkeled off of one of the beaches. I am still trying to figure out the names of the caves and the benches. Just as I dropped off the boat into the water, a large sea turtle floated up and stared at me. We had a couple of sandwiches on boat after we were done snorkeling and then started back. It was about 1:00 p.m. before we reached the rental car.

After stopping at the hotel and changing, we spent the afternoon heading back to the eastern shore. We stopped at the Kilauea Lighthouse. This is a major bird sanctuary. From there, we drove to the Wailua Falls. Sharon has been wanting to drive up to these falls ever since the plane landed. Unfortunately, the falls were underwhelming.

We finished the evening with a very nice meal at Postcards. Sharon and I both had monchong for dinner. Sharon said that she thought that this was the best meal that we had on the trip.

2013 Hawaii - Day Five - Hanalei Bay

Hawaii - Day Five - Hanalei Bay, Kauai - view from the room

Another early morning... Today is moving day. Up at 5:30 am, we were out of the room and in the rental car to the airport before 6:30 am. After grabbing a bit to eat at Starbucks, we had an uneventful flight to Kauai. We will be spending the next four night at the St. Regis Princeville near Hanalei on Kauai.

Picking up the rental car, we drove straight to the hotel and were there before 11:30 am. Going to check-in, they actually had our room ready. They also mentioned that they were upgrading our room; we are still not sure why. The room turned out to be fantastic. It is about 70 yards from both the bay and the pool with a great view of Hanalei Bay. We can walk out the back of the room to the beach or the pool.

We ended up having a nice lunch at the pool bar. Afterwards, we did something that we rarely do: hang out around the pool. Eventually, Sharon and I made a quick trip into Hanalei to figure out where we needed to go for the Na Pali cruise on Friday.

After getting cleaned up, Sharon and I had a drink in the bar. The three of us finished the night with dinner in the Kauai Grill at the hotel. We took a break during dinner to walk out on the deck and watch the sunset. I had lamb chops, while Sharon had a steak.

Sharon spend most of the day muttering about how fabulous the hotel is!

2013 Hawaii - Day Four - Hanauma Bay

Snorkeling

This is turning into a trip of early mornings. We were all up before 6:00 am. We ended up having the buffet breakfast at Duke's.

The plan for the day was to go snorkeling at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. The guidebook talked about how this is one of Oahu's most popular attractions and that the parking is full by 9:00 am to 9:30 am. I was determined to get there early so that we didn't have a problem. We ended up pulling into the parking lot a little after 8:30 am. The lot was probably about 80% full at that point.

After watching a conservation video, we wandered down to the bay. I ended up taking off on my own while Sharon stayed with Jack. I was very impressed with the number and variety of fish. After the first hour, the three of us went out and explored two other lagoons in the bay. Sharon and I finished with a swim out to point where the surf was breaking. We all ended up having a wonderful time. We also stayed a lot longer than I thought that we would. By the time, we got back to Honolulu, it was after 2:00 pm.

We wandered down Waikiki Beach looking for a place to have a late lunch. The first place that we went--The Oceanarium--was not open for lunch. We ended up having very nice lunch along the beach at the Moana Surfrider underneath an enormous 100 year old Banyan tree.

We did a little shopping on the way back to the hotel. Leaving Sharon and Jack in the room, I wandered along the beach to get a picture of the hotel and a couple of historical sites.

After getting cleaned up, Sharon and I went to the House Without A Key for drink. The three of us finished the day with a late dinner at Doraku Sushi near the hotel.

2013 Hawaii - Day Three - Pearl Harbor

Hawaii - Day Three - Pearl Harbor - USS Arizona Memorial

When we first started talking about taking a Hawaiian vacation, I pushed for at least a couple of nights in Honolulu. I wanted to visit Pearl Harbor.

On the way to Pearl Harbor, we made a quick stop at Leonard's Bakery for Portuguese malasadas. Sharon was not impressed with the pastry.

I was surprised how crowded Pearl Harbor was went we got to the parking lot about 9:20 am. It seems like we got the last parking spot. There were lots of cars circling the lot as we got unloaded.

I had bought tickets for the USS Arizona Memorial a couple of months ago. Picking up our tickets at will call, I overheard that tickets were already sold out for the day. After getting our tickets, Jack, Sharon and I wandered the grounds and through a couple of exhibits with an audio tour before our 10:30 am tickets.

They show about a 15 minute movie about the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and then loaded you up on a naval boat to take you out to the memorial. The memorial sits over the sunken USS Arizona where almost 1,000 sailors died. We got to spend about 15 minutes at the memorial before boarding a boat to head back. It was a very moving experience.

After the USS Arizona Memorial, we caught a shuttle bus to the USS Missouri. We wandered through the open areas of the Missouri. Jack and I did overnights with the cub scouts on both a submarine and an aircraft carrier. The Japanese surrendered in World War II on the deck of the Missouri.

While we were getting a bit to eat at the food truck at the USS Missouri, it start to pour. By the time we were done eating it stopped. We have been very lucky with the weather so far. It has not rained while we were out and about.

Our next stop was the Pacific Aviation Museum. Jim Dunn mentioned recently that this had been recently reopened. We toured two hangers of planes and helicopters. I was surprised how into the write-ups of the planes that Jack got. Afterwards, we caught the shuttle bus back to the entrance.

Leaving Pearl Harbor, Sharon wanted to drive up to Pu'u Ualaka'a State Wayside Park. This overlook is at 1,600 feet about Honolulu with a great 180 degree view of the coast and the city.

Getting back to the room, Sharon and I got cleaned up and had a drink and a snack at the Rumfire bar in the neighboring hotel. We finished the night driving into Chinatown and having a Chinese dinner at the Legends Seafood. Although it sounds odd to say, we were the only white people in the place...

2013 Hawaii - Day Two - Diamond Head and the North Shore

Hawaii - Day Two - Sharon and Jack on top of Diamond Head

Up very early, Sharon and I wandered out to the beach and explore the neighboring hotels. Eventually, we got Starbucks and headed back to the room.

There was a two part plan for the day. The first half was to hike Diamond Head. When we got to Diamond Head a little before 8:00 am, the parking lot was already full. We ended up driving back out of the crater and parking down at the Junior College. This only added a little less than a mile each way to the trip. I enjoyed the hike a great deal; it includes a tunnel, a long staircase and a circular ladder. The views from the bunker on the top of Diamond Head were spectacular.

Back at the car about 9:30 am, we started off on the second half of the plan for the day which was driving on the north shore of Oahu around the island. Along the way, we made stops at the Halona Blowhole and La'ie Point. We had intended to stop at the Valley of the Temples, but due to Memorial Day it was absolutely packed.

We stopped and had lunch at Giovanni's Aloha Shrimp Wagon in Kahuku. The place was packed. By the time we ordered, got our food and eaten, we were probably there almost an hour and a half. The shrimp plate was excellent and worth the wait. After lunch, we stopped at the Turtle Bay Resort for a drink in the bar.

The section of coast after the Turtle Bay Resort is home to some of the best surfing in the world. This includes the Banzai Pipeline. It is home to the best surfing in the world in the winter, not the summer. This time of year, the surf is surprisingly flat.

Eventually heading back towards Honolulu, Jack wanted to stop at the Dole Plantation. We ended up going through the maze and having some ice cream.

We rolled back into the hotel about 5:30 pm. Jack wanted to work out in the gym. I ran 4.49 miles on the treadmill, while he lifted.

Sharon had made a 9:00 pm dinner reservation at Allan Wong's. Once we got cleaned up, Sharon and I had a couple of complementary Mai Tai at the hotel. We got a cab to dinner about 8:30 pm. The three of us all ended up selecting the chef's menu with wine pairings. The entree's included snapper and a short rib. Sharon was less than thrilled by the meal.

By the time, we got back to the hotel and down for bed it was after midnight.

2013 Hawaii - Day One - Waikiki Beach

Hawaii - Day One - Waikiki Beach

Over the last few years, Sharon and I have talked about the fact that I have never vacationed in Hawaii. I went to Honolulu once in 1991 when we were doing the Systematics Commercial Loan implementation. Dan Mattos and I spent two nights and three days there doing the training. When we started to talk about this year's vacation, we ended up settling on a Hawaiian package with Pleasant Holidays.

We took an uneventful 9:15 am flight from Sacramento to Honolulu. Picking up a rental car, we were checked into the room in the hotel by 1:00 pm. We are spending the next few night at the Royal Hawaiian on Waikiki Beach. After changing into something more comfortable, we had a nice lunch at the Mai Tai Bar at the hotel.

Afterwards, we wandered down the beach. Sharon had talked about wanting to take an outrigger ride. I was surprised by the experience. With us paddling, they were actually able to get the outrigger to surf a couple of waves into the beach. We spent the rest of the afternoon wandering the beach, swimming in the ocean and hanging out by the pool. Jack and I were trying to body surf in the smaller waves.

Back in the room to get cleaned up, the laptop [a Mac Air] that I travel with would not boot up. It turned out that there was an Apple Store literally 100 yards from the hotel. Jack and I spent an hour at the Genius Bar working with Justin to get the laptop restored and working.

From there, we headed to dinner. Sharon had made reservations at Duke's. We had a nice dinner with a view of the ocean and Diamondhead. I had swordfish, while Sharon had ahi. The fish was very good and very fresh.

By the time, we got back to the room, our clocks were essentially on midnight. We crashed hard.

Eileen's Graduation - St Francis Class of 2013


Sharon, Jack and I went with the Frame Clan to Sharon's niece Eileen's graduation from St. Francis High School. The group included Tom, Becky, Brun, Kim, Tim, Kathy and Kathy's uncle and aunt. Sharon and Brun are Eileen's godparents.

We were sitting in the upper deck of the Memorial Auditorium when a 5.7 earthquake hit outside of Greenville in Northern California. It was a very weird sensation to feel the building roll! It has been a long time since I felt an earthquake.

ESPN Films 30 for 30: Elway to Marino

On Saturday night, Sharon and I finally watched Elway to Marino. Studying for finals, Jack wandered in and ended up watching most of it with us. This is the eighth installment of ESPN's 30 for 30 Vol II. An episode guide for Vol II is here.

In the spring of 1983, six quarterbacks were selected in the first round of the draft; this is still the most ever. The film explores the first round of the draft through the eyes of the players, head coaches, general managers, team owners and agents who participated. Agent Marvin Demoff who represented both John Elway and Dan Marino kept a diary in the months leading up to draft day. Demoff reads from parts of the diary as the story moves along.

Elway was drafted first by the Baltimore colts. This storyline could have almost been a 30 for 30 by itself. Elway and his father were adamant that John was not going to play for the Colts. One of the 30 for 30 Volume I films--The Band That Wouldn't Die--looked at the move of the Colts franchise from Baltimore to Indianapolis in 1984. The shots of Colts owner Robert Irsay in this documentary brought back memories of Irsay staggering drunk through the other 30 for 30.

Marino ended up dropping to the next to last pick of the first round. Four other quarterbacks were drafted between Elway and Marino, including Todd Blackledge #7, Jim Kelly #14, Tony Eason #15 and Ken O'Brien #24.

The film walks through each choice in the draft as it falls towards Marino. Some time is spent looking at each draft choice's career.

I was pleasantly surprised by the story; it was not quite what I was expecting. While not my favorite of the current set of 30 for 30s, the film is worth looking for.

Elway to Marino is available on iTunes.

A trailer for the film is here.

Chester Allan Arthur by Zachary Karabell

I finished reading Chester Alan Arthur: The American Presidents Series: The 21st President, 1881-1885 by Zachary Karabell. After finishing the book on James Garfield, I wanted to read about more about the Vice President who became President after Garfield died. This was one of the few books that I could find. This is part of my continuing effort to read about all of the United States Presidents.

Arthur served effectively as a quartermaster for the state of New York in the Civil War. After the war, he was a successful lawyer in New York City. Eventually, Arthur was appointed by Roscoe Conkling to head of the Custom House of the Port of New York. The New York Customhouse was then the largest federal office in the country. In an era before income tax, it accounted for not only three-quarters of all custom duties, but more than a third of the government's revenues.

Arthur was forced out as the head of the Custom House in 1877 in a power struggle between the two wings of the Republican Party. He became such a celebrity that he was nominated for vice president in 1880 in spite of his never before having run for office. Elected alongside James A. Garfield, Arthur found his life transformed just four months into his term, when an assassin shot and killed Garfield, catapulting Arthur into the presidency.

Largely ignored and discounted by historians, Arthur's term marked a turning point in a couple of interesting areas, Although he was a product of the patronage system and bossism, Arthur signed the Pendleton Civil Service Reform Act into law. This started the United States on the road to a professional civil service system. He also started a modernization of the Navy that would be key to the United State role in the world over the next twenty years.

Arthur died at age 57 just a little over a year after leaving office. He ordered nearly all of his personal and official papers burned.

Only 140 pages long, I enjoyed this book and recommend it.

2013 Jesuit Spring Sports Banquet


Sharon, Jack and I went to the Spring Sports Banquet at the Fr. Barry Gym. It included the Baseball, Tennis, Swimming, Diving, Track & Field and Volleyball teams. After short speeches by the athletic director and principle and a pasta dinner, the teams broke up into separate rooms. The freshman baseball team went to the music room in the Harris Center.

Coach Bittle talked a little about the year. He then reviewed each boys accomplishments and gave them a certificate. After the individual acknowledgments, three awards with plaques were given for the season: Jared - MVP; Jordan - Most Inspirational; and, Sam - Most Improved.

One footnote: It looks like at least one other Jesuit Frosh player (Nick) will be joining the Walbeck 15U team.

Walbeck Baseball Academy 15U Practice

Jack went to the first practice for the Walbeck Baseball Academy 15u team at Bella Vista High School. After trying out last weekend, he got offered a spot on the team. Jack had been planning to return to the Outlaws this summer, but after some soul searching we felt like this was an opportunity that we couldn't pass up. It is a decision made with a heavy heart. Jack has played with the Outlaws, including Cooper, Trevor, Breyton and Josh for almost five years. We have built connections with a number of the families.

There were 12 boys at the Walbeck practice. I think that the final roster will be 16. There were 5 Jesuit players: Jack, Alex and Kyle from the frosh team and Petrucci and Wiesenfarth from the JV team. One of the parents said that there are 5 Bella Vista players and then a couple of boys from Granite Bay.

Try-outs for the Walbeck 17U team were held right after the 15U practice. Two boys from the Jesuit freshman team--Nick and Jared--are trying out for that team.

the signal and the noise by Nate Silver

In April, I finished reading the signal and the noise: why so many predications fail-but some don't by Nate Silver. I bought the book after seeing Nate Silver interviewed on the Jon Stewart Show.

Silver launched to fame when he accurately predicted the presidential winner of 49 of the 50 states and the winners of all 35 Senate races in 2008. Before he focused on elections, Silver developed a sophisticated system for analyzing baseball players' potential and became a skilled poker player.

The book is largely about evaluating predictions in a variety of fields. There are chapters covering forecasting in the areas of economics, politics, baseball, weather, earthquakes, diseases, gambling, chess, poker, the stock market, climate change and terrorists attacks. In all of these areas, Silver examines predictions that have gone bad due to biases, vested interests, and overconfidence. He also shows where and how sophisticated forecasters have gotten it right.

Although I have an Agricultural Economics degree, I was really a math and statistics major in college. I was very interested in the field of econometrics: the branch of economics concerned with the use of mathematical methods in describing economic systems. We used computers to build models of the economy. After taking a couple of graduate level class, I realized that I was more interested in the computers than in econometrics.

One of Silver's comments hit close to home. He notes that "the idea that a statistical model would be able to 'solve' the problem of economic forecasting was somewhat in vogue in the 1970's and 1980's when computers came into wider use." Silver goes on to say that "improved technology did not cover for the lack of theoretical understanding about the economy; it only gave economists faster and more elaborate ways to mistake noise for signal." I graduated from college in 1979, right in the middle of this period. Professionally, I am probably very lucky that I got opportunities to pursue information systems as a vocation rather than econometrics.

The signal and the noise was named by Amazon.com as the #3 best nonfiction book of 2012. While I found some parts of the book very interesting, I struggled through some big sections. I wouldn't rate it as highly as Amazon did. I don't frankly don't recommend it as a general read unless you have some specific interest in forecasting...

Virtually Biking Across America - Day 58


On day 58, I rode east 24.4 miles across Nebraska. Starting from the Ficklin Springs Pony Express Station Marker [41° 47' 22.45", 103° 32' 0.64"], I followed Highway E-92 past the Chimney Rock Pony Express Station [41° 43' 13.50", 103° 20' 19.02] and into Bridgeport.

Mother's Day 2013


Mother's Day morning, I made omelets for breakfast. We gave Sharon a roomba for Mother's Day; both she and Jack were fascinated by it. Afterwards, I dropped Sharon at Bannister Park with her bike. She did a 20 mile ride, while I spent the rest of the morning shopping.

We invited the Tom Frames and Jim over for dinner. With some help from the boys, I barbecued steaks. Dinner included the steaks, baked potatoes, spinach soufflé and salad. The group finished the evening watching the finale of Survivor: Caramoan.

Walbeck Baseball Academy 15U Try-outs

After spending seven hours working at Loaves and Fishes as part of his community service, Jack went to the Walbeck Baseball Academy 15U Try-outs. This is a tournament baseball team that is going to play in June and July. I heard about this program from one of the Jesuit parents [Dana]. Jack and three of his teammates (Kyle, Alex and Trevor) from the Jesuit team went, as well as two players from the Jesuit JV team.

The group included about 22 boys. I didn't stay and watch the try-outs. Additionally, I signed Jack up after the parent meeting. As a result, I am pretty oblivious to how many kids that the team is going to carry, what the schedule for practices and tournaments will be or what the quality of the kids trying out was. I was shocked to see a number of very small kids in the group of boys trying out. My guess is that they must have been 12 and 13 year olds.

In one of those odd coincidences, Coop was also signed up for the try-out. The coaches actually called Coop's name as they were listing the groups for batting practice. Talking to Rod over the last couple of days, they decided to focus on soccer for the next couple of months.

Talking to a couple of the Jesuit parents when I wandered back at the end of try-outs, they were very complimentary about how Jack did. Jack said that one of the coaches told him that he had the two fastest 60 yard dash times of any of the outfielders and catchers.

At the end of the try-out, the coaches told the boys that we would be contacting the players in the next week to ten days. The plan for the summer has always been to go back and play with the Outlaws. I am honestly not sure what we will do if they offer Jack a spot on this team. I think that part of the key to the puzzle will be who else from the Jesuit team gets offered a spot.

Starbucks iTunes Pick of the Week - ESPN Films: Catching Hell

Catching Hell was originally announced in 2009 as part of the 30 documentaries that ESPN ran to celebrate its 30th anniversary; it did not run as part of the series. It eventually ran under the ESPN Films banner as part of a group of seven documentaries that aired in late 2011.

My thoughts after seeing Catching Hell in October 2011 are here.

Jesuit Frosh baseball versus Oakmont

The Jesuit Marauders played the Oakmont Vikings in their 27th and last game of the season. The Marauders beat the Vikings by the score of 25 to 4 in their first meeting.

Jack led off and started in centerfield.

At dinner for mexican food on Sunday night, Jack asked me for the first time this season what his batting average was. I told him that it was exactly .400. You could see the wheels immediately start turning. Jack was clearly very motivated to keep his average above .400.

At the plate, Jack was 3 for 3 with 2 RBIs, 3 runs scored and 4 stolen bases. In his first at-bat, he hit a 1 and 1 pitch for a sharp grounder up the middle. He stole second. After Kyle struck out looking, Jack scored on Jordan's double to left center. Jack grounded a 1 and 2 pitch up the middle for single in his second plate appearance. He stole second. After Kyle struck out swinging and Jordan walked, Jack stole third. He scored on a wild pitch during Ryan's at-bat. Ryan eventually struck out swinging to end the second inning. In his third at-bat in the third inning with the bases loaded and one out, Jack ran the count to 3 and 2. He lunged at the sixth pitch and fouled it off. Jack hit the seventh pitch for a hard line drive in left center for a single and two RBIs. He stole second, went to third on Jordan's single to right, and scored on Ryan's single up the middle.

In the field, Jack played three innings in centerfield. He did not have a put-out or an assist.

Leading 4 to 0 in the top of the third, the Marauders blew the game open. They scored 7 runs and won the game by the score of 11 to 1 in five innings. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.

Beards (1 - 1, ERA 3.15, 1 start, 4 relief appearances, 6.2 innings) was the winning pitcher. Redmond and Chiappe pitched the fourth and fifth innings, respectively.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team finished the season with 22 wins and 5 losses. In league, they had 15 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here.

After having a little bit of slump in the middle of the season, Jack finished the year on an absolute tear. He had great games against the two toughest league opponents (Christian Brothers and Oak Ridge) and tore up a couple of weaker teams. I will be writing a separate post summarizing his statistics for the season. Quoting Rod, Jack had a phenomenal season.

Virtually Biking Across America - Day 57


On day 57, I rode 20.8 miles across Nebraska. Starting in Mitchell, Nebraska, I rode south on a series of named and unnamed roads until I got to Highway NE-92 Scenic. I rode past the Scotts Bluff Pony Express Station [41° 49' 42.12", 103° 42' 25.92"] and ended the ride at the Ficklin Springs Pony Express Station Marker [41° 47' 22.45", 103° 32' 0.64"].

Jesuit Frosh baseball versus Ponderosa


The Jesuit Marauders played the Ponderosa Bruins in their 26th game of the season. The Marauders beat the Bruins by the score of 13 to 3 in their first meeting.

The boys got a chance to play on the varsity field. Back from Europe last night, Tom, Kevin and Eric showed up to the game in the second inning.

Jack entered the game in the fifth inning batting lead off and playing in centerfield.

At the plate, Jack was 1 for 1 with a double and an RBI. Coming to bat in the bottom of the fifth, Jack crushed a 3 and 1 pitch into right center. The ball one hopped to the fence near the 367 foot sign. Jordan scored the 10th run and the game was over. Jack had a walk off hit!?!

In the field, Jack played one inning in centerfield. He did not have a put-out or an assist.

The Marauders were held hitless for the first three innings and then exploded for 9 runs in the fourth inning. With Jack driving in the last run in the fifth inning, the final score was Jesuit 10, Ponderosa 0. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.

Cole (2 - 1, ERA 0.54, 2 starts, 4 relief appearances, 13.0 innings) was the winning pitcher. Kevin pitched the fifth inning.

This was the last home game of the season. A couple of the parents organized a very nice pizza party for the team and the families.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 21 wins and 5 losses. In league, they have 14 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders last game of the year is Monday, May 6 at Oakmont.

Jesuit Frosh baseball versus Del Campo

The Jesuit Marauders played the Del Campo Cougars in their 25th game of the season. The Marauders beat the Cougars on April 22 by the score of 30 to 0!?!

With the season winding down against a series of very weak teams, the coach is taking the opportunity to play a number of players who have not played as much over the course of the season. The first seven players in the line-up against Christian Brothers (Jack, Jordan, Iwasa, Jared, Bailey, Byrce and Alex) did not play for the second time in three games.

I posted in early April with some thoughts about Sacramento area high school baseball. The games against Del Campo and Casa Roble reinforce the point that I was trying to make about the quality of the Jesuit freshman team. Against both of these teams, the coach played the 10th through 19th players on the team and still 10 runned both opponents.

The Marauders scored 15 runs in the bottom of the second inning. Kyle actually batted three times and had three singles. The Cougars committed 9 errors in the inning and allowed 12 unearned runs. The Marauders beat the Cougars by the score of 16 to 1. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.

Allman (1 - 0, ERA 1.75, 1 start, 1 appearance, 4.0 innings) was the winning pitcher.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 20 wins and 5 losses. In league, they have 13 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Saturday, May 4 at home against Ponderosa. They will be playing their last home game of the year on the varsity field.

Jesuit Frosh baseball versus Oak Ridge

The Jesuit Marauders frosh baseball team played their 24th game of the season against the Oak Ridge Trojans. The Marauders beat the Trojans by the score of 10 to 5 in their first meeting on April 10.

In league, Oak Ridge only had two losses: one to the Marauders and one to Christian Brothers. They beat Christian Brothers last week by the score of 7 to 5. Overall, the Trojans' record was 17-6-1.

This turned out to be one of the wildest baseball games that I have ever seen.

Jack led off and started in centerfield.

At the plate, Jack was 4 for 5 with 3 singles, a double, 3 runs scored and 4 RBIs. In his first at-bat, Jack chopped a 2 and 2 pitch through the right side for a single. He went to second on Jordan's single and then scored on Byrce's line drive into right center. Jack hit a 1 and 0 pitch for a line drive into right field in his second plate appearance. In something I don't know that I have ever seen before, Jack was called out when Nick passed him on the base path. Nick hit a pop up down the third base line that no one could tell if it was fair or foul or if the left fielder had caught the ball. Sitting behind home plate, I never saw the umpire make a sign. Jack held up between first and second trying to figure out what happened and Nick ran past him. In his third at-bat, Jack struck out looking on a 1 and 2 pitch that was way off the plate. The umpire was calling a very wide strike zone. Several boys on both teams struck out looking at outside pitches. One of the Oak Ridge players got tossed from the game for arguing the call. With two out in the fifth and runners on first and second, Jack hit the first pitch for a hard line drive to the left side. Alex was leading off second. The ball was hit right at Alex. With the shortstop behind Alex, the ball ended up caroming off the shortstop's shin. Alex scored and Jack was safe at first. Jack scored from first on Jordan's double to left.

Jack came up a fifth time in the sixth inning with one out and the bases loaded. Jack crushed a 1 and 0 pitch for a line drive into centerfield for a double and 3 RBIs. Jack went to third on an error on Jordan's grounder and scored on a sacrifice fly by Jared. Jack said in the car afterwards that he was surprised that how hard he hit the ball; it was an inside pitch. He was excited that the JV coach had walked up at that point and seen him hit it...

In the field, Jack played six innings in centerfield and one inning in left. He had three put-outs on fly balls to centerfield. Jack had one fly ball crushed over his head that he couldn't quite catch up to. I also charged him with his first error of the season. In the sixth inning, a line drive was hit up the middle. As Jack charged the ball, it took a nasty bounce in the outfield. Trying to change directions, Jack's feet went out from underneath him and the ball got by him. Jack and I have talked since the beginning of the season about how much of an adventure the outfield is...

Trailing by the score of 7 to 1 in the bottom of fourth inning, a football game broke out. The two teams scored 27 runs in the next three innings. The Marauders were their own worst enemy; over the course of the game, they gave up 9 unearned runs on 9 errors. The Marauders ended up winning the game by the score of 19 to 16. The box score is here and the score card is here.

Iwasa (5 - 1, ERA 3.59, 7 starts, 1 relief appearance, 37.0 innings) was the winning pitcher. Wolger started the game and got his fifth no decision of the year.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 19 wins and 5 losses. In league, they have 12 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Thursday, May 2 at home against Del Campo.
