So here is the link to watch the "Red" division championship: https://www.meridix.com/event/145620
You can click through the game a bit, maybe just watch the 7th inning if anything!
The game was good -- I ended up hitting well 2 for 3 and pitching all 7 innings, scattering 5 hits, giving up 1 run (unearned) but ZERO walks and ended up with 7 strikeouts. I threw 90 pitches with 63 of them strikes - with the help of a nice strike zone by Mr. Ump. I will give a shoutout to my MVP Rightfielder Abby - she caught two fly balls out there today and both were big outs - the wind was blowing fiercely in from right field - so for her to track those flyballs was a big help and my SS/3B combo played very well as I was able to get a fair amount of ground balls to the left side.
My man Mark got an important hit as a part of a rally in the 5th inning - so a great game all around by basically the entire lineup. Camp MVP Ryan Hess was a big part of the week along with his best friend Dave Prybilla, who basically smothered everything in the field and made a great play in the first inning by tagging out a runner who was wondering off of 2nd base to get us a huge out early in the game.

The Blue Division championship was fun for me as I was able to "finally" get into the broadcast booth and do a part of the game/color commentary (unintentional comedy) - I really had a great time up there with the headphones on and the mic. It was definitely harder than I thought and you really need to be quick with your words - I hope I don't get highlighted in the "Awful Announcing" website anytime soon - you can see that game at:
I found the booth about the 2nd inning and stayed in there until the 5th inning and if Nick will have me again in the future -- would love to visit again and hone those skills. In High school I did have dreams of being a broadcaster -- but I will be honest, I mumble a bit and my voice (IMO) is not a great broadcaster tone -- but I listened to it and I will give myself a solid B for my first time.
The games are features on the Walshmedia.Net website -- or simply search for them by typing Twins Fantasy Camp.
Until next year folks......
