Dodgers are World Series Champions for 7th time

548

Los Angeles is the World Series champions for the 7th time in club history, 1st time since 1988 after a 3-1 win over Tampa Bay in Game 6 last night.

Controversy came in the 6th inning when Rays manager Kevin Cash pulled starter Blake Snell for reliever Nick Anderson. It was nothing new for Cash, he’d played by the numbers all season long. But Snell was cruising through 5-and-a-third, allowing 1-run on 2-hits with 9-strikeouts. Anderson quickly gave up two runs and the Dodgers went on for the win.

Cash says he understands any criticism coming his way…

Corey Seager was voted the World Series MVP after batting .400 in six games with 2-home runs and 5-RBI’s. He and manager Dave Roberts were understandably all-smiles afterwards…

Julio Urias was perfect over the final 2-and-a-third innings, allowing not a single baserunner while striking out 4. In fact, Game 6 of the World Series set an all-time record for K’s as both teams combined for 27-strikeouts.

It’s worth mentioning that Tampa Bay’s lone run came on a 1st-inning home run by Randy Arozarena. That gave him 3 for the World Series and 10 in the postseason, a record…and he’s just a rookie.

Cooprider faced problem of condemned fields with complex idea

Sandy Cooprider was hired to be the baseball coach at Wenatchee Valley College in 1971. After years serving as the baseball and football coach for the Knights, Sandy was promoted to athletic director. 20-years ago, he began developing what is now a sports complex at WVC that will bear his name…

Cooprider's Field of Dreams began with condemned fields of poplars

In 1991, a 7-acre patchwork of fields on campus that were used by local youth soccer clubs was condemned because the ring of poplar trees around the exterior were dying. That’s when Cooprider came up with an idea…

There was a little problem, however, with the idea of removing the trees. Cooprider says there’s a way around any road block…

Now that the trees were down, it was time to bring in the big equipment to remove the trees, stumps and begin moving dirt. That’s where local companies like Selland Construction, Pipkin Construction and Goodfellow Brothers came in and helped really make what is now four separate fields come to life.

Cooprider says the entire project was also receiving zero dollars from the college or the state. So, it was up to Sandy and a group of local benefactors to come up with the money to pay for the complex. We’ll have more on that part of the story tomorrow.

Seahawks decide it’s “Snacks” time

Trying desperately to find a pass rush, the Seahawks added Damon “Snacks” Harrison off the practice squad yesterday…

Seahawks add "Snacks" Harrison to 53-man roster

To make room on the roster, Seattle waived defensive tackle Anthony Rush. Harrison is a former All-Pro with the Detroit Lions that has been on Seattle’s practice squad working into game shape for the past three weeks.

The Seahawks currently rank 29th in the NFL in sacking the opposing team’s quarterback. Seattle is also last in the league in total yards allowed and passing yards allowed per game. They’re hoping Harrison can help as they prepare to host San Francisco Sunday.
