2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 430 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 7 trips to carry that many people.

Summer 2014 Vacation

I know, I have been very lax in posting content, and I will try to do better.  We had a fantastic family reunion / vacation this summer in Poggelow and Berlin, and I will be posting some pictures shortly.

Here are just a couple to get started.


Final Stats – Pilots

Below are the final stats for the Pilots.  The Pilots won 3 games by forfeit, and played a total of 20 games, ending the regular season with a record of 18 and 2.  The team batted .445 for the season, scoring 221 runs, while walking 141 times and striking out 121 times.  Good job Pilots, and let’s have some fun in the play-offs.


Play-off Baseball

Pilots finished the season in first place with a 18 and 2 record.  I will post final stats shortly.

Today, the play-offs begin, with the Pilots facing the 4-seed Seals (weather permitting, as thunder storms could pop up this evening).  The game is at 5:45 PM, and should be a good match-up of two very strong teams.  Depending on the outcome, the Pilots will either face the Flames or the Knights on Tuesday.  Good luck Christopher and Pilots.

Pilots Update

Pilots went 3 and 0 their last three games, and now sit atop the division with a record of 15 and 2.  They started off beating the Chiefs 18:3, followed by back-to-back games against the Colonels, winning the first game convincingly 23:5 and winning the second game 12:7.

Next game is today against the 3rd place Seals (with a record of 13-4-1), and then 2 more games later next week.  Here are the up-to-date stats, Christopher is batting .533, with 24 hits in 45 at-bats, driving in 16 runs, and getting walked a team-leading 17 times.  Great job Christopher, and let’s go Pilots!


Pilots Baseball – Update end of June

The Pilots had a couple of tough losses since the last update, losing 9:5 against the Seals (behind strong pitching from Matt), as well as losing in extra innings 8:7 against the Flames.  But the very next game the Pilots recorded a forfeit win, since the Orioles only had 8 players to start the game.  This brought the Pilots record to 10 and 2 on the season.

Wednesday the Pilots faced another tough pitcher, battling the Knights to a 5:4 victory.  The Pilots went up 4:0 early on, and strong pitching by Ronnie kept the Knights at bay, with Ronnie recording a complete game win, striking out 15 and only giving up 3 hits.  Great job Pilots, still on top of the league at 11 and 2.

Updated player stats are below, as well as the standings.  Next game is a make-up game on Saturday against the Knights – should be a fun game.
