The following are updates on local baseball players at the minor league level. Christian Bergman (St. Francis High, 2006) starting pitcher, Modesto Nuts: While the former Golden Knight hit a few bumps in the road this year, it was still impossible to deny what a great year it he had. It showed Wednesday when Bergman was named the California League Pitcher of the Year. He followed that up by winning his league-high 16th game of the year over the Stockton Ports, 5-2. He gave up seven hits, a walk, two runs - both coming on home runs in the second inning - and struck out three through six innings to increase his record to 16-5 and become just the second player to notch 16 wins in the history of the Nuts, the class-A advanced affiliate of the Colorado Rockies, according to the Modesto Bee. “This was a solid day,” Bergman told the Modesto Bee Wednesday.

I was a 15-year-old punk conscripted as an indentured servant, schlepping equipment for the band. They had a gig at Glen Island Casino, the biggest musical venue in New York. They were playing for a benefit sponsored by the New York Yankees, raising funds to refurbish Frankie Frisch Field on Mosholu Parkway in the Bronx.

I know that the McCourts’ divorce is really none of my business and it is simply rude to mention it, but the sad fact remains: The Dodgers need the money for the bullpen. The bullpen, of course, is where the relief pitchers warm up during a baseball game. Meanwhile, Frank and Jamie McCourt continue to litigate whether the Dodgers franchise is community or separate property. It is estimated that Jamie’s lawyers have billed $9 million, and that lawyers for Frank are in the same ballpark.
