No Myrtletown team. Best Drunks in all of Humboldt County. Babe Ruth Chili to all that play.

Silly Ted. Everybody heard and knew you where up there. We all secretely hoped you would throw a beer can down when you didnt like a play-call selection.
Everybody heard and knew? OK. I wasn't trying to hide. It's surprising what people think they know.

What exactly does Ted in the bushes have to do with Humboldt Eagle baseball?

No quams about Ted in the bushes. Just wondering what shenanigans have happened with Eagle players up on the old Albee stadium hillside.

You're right. Let's quit talkin about Ted being in the bushes and let's get back to talkin Eagle Ball.

Here are a few of my best Eagle memories....

1. Watching David Stone launch homeruns into Viale Street across the Left Center Field fence at Babe Ruth Park
2. Tim Crossan's game
3. Watching Bob Boyer scowl and then hit himself in the helmet with his bat after he struck out, then launch his helmet against the fence. Loved watching Bob....what a gamer!
4. The Mike Strickland / Jim Wallace tandem on the mound.
5. Mark Bateson getting dirty!
6. Jason Lorenz shutting out Bercovich 1-0 at Chabot College's launching pad---unheard of and probably the only time Bercovich was ever shut out!
7. Les Bowie's two homeruns at the State Tournament in Yountville. Rest in Peace!
8. Jon Parr's exploding slider
9. Todd Colson knocking hitters on their a**
10. Scott Eskra launching HR's into the night in Carson City.
11. Marcus Jensen (former SF Giant) from Bercovich, stealing a car in Oakland and driving it up with some teammates so they could play the Eagles.

I have to say that these memories of your are by far really great in comparison to some of the raunchy memories some of the guys feel the need to share here. Just one thing to add; your #2 memorie....I wanted to say R.I.P. Crowman.

I remember watching Crow in the area tournament in Redding and betting with Dave Bills in the stands that he was going yard on the next at bat. Unbelievable because he did. Had to go the Chiropractor earlier in the day. incredible stuff.

Eskra could of played in any year with the Eagles, what a talent. He had the potential to go big in the pro's. He was awesome at Ole Miss. Would of played in the bigs if he didnt Screw, fight, and drink his way out of the game,

It's good to know that other people will now remember and think about the really, really good players mentioned on that list. They're younger than me, but the same age as my nephew Frank Niemi who played with many of them before we moved to Portland and he finished his playing days up there. They were all very special players. I followed the group my nephew played with all over the place to cheer them on.

(Note: This is the first time I've logged on and commented in this spot in awhile. It's unthinkable that somebody would "converse" using my name here...but, somebody did it.)

I remember when Mark Izatt made 5 errors in one game against Bercovich and struck out 3 times. Rough day for ZATT!

The Ramy Dickinson and Lee twins scrap against the DOCS of Roseburg is a classic. Full on brawl in the 2nd inning and nobody ejected. Happened again in the 5th, this time coaches scrapping each other.

I'd like to add:
12. Anytime Jon Stone took the mound. He was always $$$$.
13. Listening to Ray Luce (manager of Bercovich) criticize his superstars while he sat there on the bench (like Jaba the Hut).

Dickinson was a stud.
Eskra was just plain special.

Eskra really was someone that could be poster on every kids bedroom. Sure he loved the chili but that guy could flat out hit and play the hot corner. Ted did a great article on him the year the Eagles just dominated the whole Pacific Ocean States and Nevada. Scotty is just a great guy and could go 4x4 then bang 2 hotties before curfew and come to his room and pound 2 40oz like never before. Never heard a bad word against the guy in the snack bar. Who could complain about a kid who wa considered by some, Jesus in Cleats.

Roadtrip? So its Roadtrip now. Not Chuck Sonnenberg, or Board Member, or Palco? Or should it be Charlene? Why don't you go back to the bash Todd Ziegler thread and criticize his recruits. You were good at that, Charlene.

14. Harvey "Wallbanger" Hanover smash the tournament record for homeruns in the Anderson tourney in 96. Played on the last Eagles team along with a few other infielders from the talented Del Norte team
that saw its perfect season ended over a few brewskies and some herbs before the St. Bernards tourney.

The boy could flat out smash. 4 games and 8 homers. 2,3,2,and 1. What a tremendous power display from one of the area's best fastball hitters to ever come along

Ohh Harvey Wallbanger. He sure was something special. He could mash with the best of him. The "Albino" bandit looked like a younger Jack Cust. Harvey, Dirk and Chuck from the Del Norte area were a great addition to that 96' team. They ate their weight in chili and taught all the Humboldt boys about the Gravity Bong. They always were game for some Acey Ducey and really knew how to flood a hotel room while them and their teamates where at a tourny. Nothin better then getting a room key and turning on all the faucets and pluggin them up while your gone for 3 hrs...truly classic.

This has gotta be Ben Mathias to be making a statement like that. We all know it was you, not the DN boys, that flooded the room. That was all you and maybe a lil bit of jake kadle.
