The 3rd Annual Alumni Game was a blast. The home team won it in the bottom of the 6th by a final score of 11-10. The game MVP goes to Ryan Lau who had 2 monster home runs, a single, and 5 RBIs. Lau pitched 2 innings and got tagged with the loss. Down 2 runs in the last inning, Tom Claffey hit a solo home run. Nico Rusconi and Randy Poe each had singles. Josh Heinz hit a ground ball and the throw to first was wide allowing 2 runs to score and end the game. There was a lot of offense in the game. CJ Woldanski had a single, double, and a home run. Heinz had 2 doubles. Aaron Watkins had 2 singles and a double. Claffey finished with a 2 doubles and a home run. Randy Poe had 2 doubles and a single. Rusconi and Travis Sreden each had 2 hits.

On the mound Bobby Calzadillas set a Alumni Game record throwing 4 innings. Andrew Reed and Fredrickson each hurled 2 innings. Rusconi and Spencer Ortega each threw 1 inning.
There were 2 notable defensive plays. Prieto made a diving catch in right field to save a couple runs. Chris Reed made a diving play at first to end a rally.
There was a epic battle before the game even started. The 3rd Annual Home Run contest needed a playoff round to decide a winner. Chris Reed and CJ Woldanski each had 3 home runs in the first round. In the second round C Reed had 2 more home runs, but Woldanski stepped in and crushed 3 big flys to walk away with the crown. The orignal winner back in 2010 was Chris Caldwell. Then in 2011 Aaron Watkins twas the winner and this year's defending champ.
We would like to thank Mr. Armendariz for all the food. Mama and grandma Ortiz for helping clean. The varsity players for shagging during BP and cleaning up the field. Trevor for helping organize the event. LWs waving his bat on the way to first was classic and will be a new play for the Wildcats this year. It was great to see Allen late again, the Cave Man leave early, and Jared throw his bat. Scott Keene was great as our umpire even with 5 ball counts. None of the bats were legal. C Reed still competes. No WR baseball event would be a success without T-Dog. CJ still rocks the rally socks. Infield fly was yelled on any ball in the air. WR current and past baseball parents are the best! Prieto and Lau are HUGE! An appearance by Paul Hammons and the Hammons family made the day. Great times!
