We're having a guest on during the 5 o'clock hour. His name is Mark Armour. He's recently authored a book called "Joe Cronin-A Life in Baseball". Cronin is an incredibly interesting subject. Hall of Fame player and manager for the Red Sox during some truly glorious years with Ted Williams, our own local star Bobby Doerr, Jimmie Foxx & Dom Dimaggio. Also served as president of the American League from 1959 through 1973. Armour is appearing this evening from 6-7pm at the Barnes & Noble across from Valley River in Eugene.
How about them Duck baseballers? Really took it to Oregon State last night at the big PK. This is not the high caliber OSU team we've grown accustomed to the past half decade. Their offense has become somewhat anemic. Managed pretty much nothing against the Oregon front liners Joey Housey and Madison Boer. Just 1 earned and 5 hits through 7 innings. By the time they broke through late it was academic. The Beavs are dead last in the Pac 10 in batting average, total bases and hits. The pitching and defense are pretty strong, but the lumber will likely cost them a shot at the post season.
Oregon is again home this weekend for Washington State. I have 2 pair of tickets for each game. You want in? E-mail me the correct answer to the following. I mentioned Joe Cronin of the Bosox. His number hangs on the wall at Fenway Park, retired. What is it? E-mail to email@example.com
