Summer Check-In, Part IV
Throughout the summer, we've been hearing from Huskies playing summer baseball across the country. Here's the lastest from Aaron West, Joe Meggs and Austin Voth.
AARON WEST, Humboldt Crabs
Hello Husky Nation! Ending the second to last weekend of league play we took two out of three from the Nevada Bullets. These wins improved our conference record to 19-5 and are overall record to 32-11. We end our league play with a three-game series against the Redding Colt 45's next weekend. The league tournament will begin the following week.
The weather is still around the 60-degree mark with the occasional rain and wind. We have also had some great days as well making this experience a very good one down here in California. I am looking forward to taking home the championship here for the Humboldt Crabs. We have some great coaches and good players on this team.
I have had a good summer so far. My coaches told me yesterday I was 5-0 with a 0.24 ERA and 66 K's in 39 IP! I had no clue! Glad I have been able to come down here and pitch and have some success. I am looking to continue on with this success up in Seattle very soon for the Huskies! Go Dawgs...
JOE MEGGS, Terre Haute Rex
My team is currently right in the middle of the playoff hunt. We have 10 games left and we are sitting a half game up in first place for the second half. It's been nice to play in meaningful games all summer because I think that helps me get prepared for the next season at school. I'm sure the playoff spot won't be clinched until one of the last days of the season, so we have a lot to look forward to.
The weather here in the Midwest has been a little different than in Seattle. The heat index hovered around 115 for games last week, and game time temperature is routinely around a pleasant 95 degrees. It makes for a challenge but it is all part of the experience.
The summer season has gone by fast but at the same time I'm excited for fall ball to start again. Our program has a lot to look forward to and we are going to surprise a lot of people come spring time. Talk to you soon
AUSTIN VOTH, Brewster Whitecaps
Life in the Cape Cod has been great. My team is in first place in our division, the weather out here has been great and I just found out I made the All-Star team. It's a great opportunity to play against the top 40 players in the Cape. Next Thursday is when the All-Star Game will be played at Fenway. I have never been to or played at Fenway Park before, so this will be an exciting day for me.
There are five other players on my team that have been selected to go to the All-Star Game as well. My uncle came up for a couple days this last week and it was really nice to see him.
The Brewster Whitecaps are still in first place and will hopefully stay that way going into the playoffs. Our team is very talented and I believe we have a good chance to go all the way. I talked to my pitching coach the other day and he said there will be a chance that I will be starting some games in the playoffs because of how well I have been throwing.
This whole summer I've been throwing out of the pen and had a lot of success. As summer ball comes to an end, I know that we will make a good run at winning the championship this year.
