Ducks and the Sopranos

2012 South Oakland Ducks Baseball

I started  watching the Sopranos from the beginning a while back, and i’m on the second to last episode.

The Ducks did so much to add sympathy initially to Tony’s character. Very well done.

South Oakland opens division play at Cranberry, Sunday, 2pm.


Ducks Lose


Ducks 10, Express 11 (6)

The plate ump was terrible for both sides. The game was called after 6 due to time expiring. 

This has been the weirdest start to a season i can remember. 

We still don’t know what we look like with our full lineup. 

Militia at home wed, 9pm.



Game Time Change

2012 South Oakland Ducks Baseball

Ducks at Express has been moved to 8pm Sunday.

How we respond in this game is going to dictate in a big way how the rest of our season goes. This is as important as a non-division game can be this early in the season.

The Express are tough this year. They played our friends in Imperial real close.

We’ve added some new players who will be there on Sunday night.

We’re either going to battle out of this, make the playoffs and have a run at the title, or we’re going to finish like 5 – 17-2, and most of us will never see each other again.


Ducks Lose.

2012 South Oakland Ducks Baseball

South Oakland fell to 1-3-2 on the season. Pitchers who had committed are defecting, there are rumors of ruptured achilles’ tendons amongst star infielders. Dark times right now.

On a better note, the way TJ Morgan offered to pitch in a lost cause, and 3B Jesse Ferko dove after ground balls on an infield that has gotten worse since last year now that the youth league doesn’t seem to be playing on it, was good to see. Brett Pusateri had a good game as well.

We’ve got to play better.

With the new roster spots opening up, we’ve added a few players, who will make us better.

All that said, we’ve not as far away as it seemed Monday night. I believe that. You can’t hide a guy who hasn’t played in a couple years on the mound. it’s just not possible.

We’ll bounce back.


The game vs the Express has been moved to Sunday at 8pm due to a high school playoff game.
