8/14/10 Odds & Ends

Well, it’s Saturday. Odds & ends time. You guys know the drill by now. I’m headed up to Delta Junction for the weekend but I’ll be back on Monday and probably hit you with some more scouting video. In the mean time, here’s some quick shots for the weekend:

- The other day, we talked about former Glacier Pilot Drew Anderson and his very short stay in the independent leagues. Well, it was brought to my attention that current broadcast man for the Huntsville Stars — where Anderson is currently assigned — and formerly of the Goldpanners and Fire, Aaron Morse, has written a little piece on Anderson for his blog “A View From Behind the Mic”. It’s kind of weird how ABL people can cross paths like that, but it’s a good article so go ahead and give it a read!

- Here’s a little bit of ABL alumni news: former Anchorage Bucs, Glacier Pilots and East High right-hander Chad Nading has reportedly agreed to terms with the San Diego Padres on an undrafted free agent contract and has been assigned to their Arizona League rookie-level team. Congrats to Chad on joining the long list of pro alumni of the ABL! Here’s the article from the ADN. (Good to see ADN covering ABL stuff in the off-season, too.)

- TheĀ  Miners have posted my YouTube video of their celebratory championship dogpile on their website. Which is great because my YouTube channel is blowin’ up!

That’s it! Have fun, be safe, see you Monday.
