    King is a moron to talk about personal issues. He doesn’t deserve any more responses or comments to his stupid and ill-conceived ideas.

  • Ramundo

    Well folks, the King is dead. Long live Alameda! Validation is a wonderful thing, huh? Alameda 3 – SRV 1

  • King

    The king rises good win ahs. Cant wait for ncs after 1st rnd ahs will have to play more than 1game a week wont be able to save yee like they did this week. Can i get a job there i hear its real profitiable these days at ahs.

  • baseballcoach21

    Nice win AHS but in reality, i don’t believe it makes them the best team in the East Bay. I don’t know who started for San Ramon but at best, it was their number 3 pitcher. Slinger threw on Wednesday and Hochstatter threw on Friday. A win is a win, not taking away anything from AHS, but odds improve when a high school number one pitcher like Yee throws against a number three pitcher. I think the issue I have is how AHS uses Yee like a pack horse. He threw 136 pitches the other day to beat Berkeley and seems to throw complete games or close to it most starts. I’m not sure this is in Yee’s best interest for the future….

  • Notthefacts

    Yee didn’t pitch against SRV. It was Cobb.

  • Baseballcoach21

    My bad. I just saw the press release for the AHS vs SRVH game and Yee did not start. Cobb started and he pitched a great game. Popovich started for SRVHS and even though he is used mostly as a reliever, he is not a bad pitcher.

  • Triton8

    …..that’s a wrap…King has left no doubt who he is now!!!

  • Triton8

    Baseballcoach21: not sure if it played any part in the decisions, but Head Coach Arnerich was not in the dugout for the Berkeley game that went extra innings…

  • The President

    Appears King has a major axe to grind. Give AHS credit for a program that has gotten to the NCS Championship 4 out of 5 years. I believe you still need to win 2 to 3 games in NCS in order to get to a championship, thus they’re doing something right to just get there. You have got to give their program and feeder programs (LL and BR) credit for such an accomplishment. Will you do that King???

  • Reggie Hammond

    Well, well, well… Lets go Island baseball teams with the exceptin of St. Joes. I wish Alameda would play Encinal twice with a option for a third game if need be. The rivalries are fun and the revenue is there to be had. AHS whipped EHS fare and square. I still root for the Jets though.

    My problem is how come Little League and Babe Ruth only extends its arms to East end kids. Thus, these programs are like magnets to AHS. Its a monopoly. Same with football and the warriors and wolverines. However, Im hearing about a story thats going to make a change on the Island for a long time.

  • Triton8

    Hammond….there is starting to be a movement towards Encinal in the force. Recently, more and more of the All Stars from LL and BR are enrolling at the Encinal. The Jets will be back as a baseball force….they are stocked with a bunch of real young talent, with more on the way!!!

    As far as youth football in Alameda….I’m not sure I agree. Both The Pirates and The Wolverines are funneling kids to Encinal. The Pirates have been sending kids to The Jets for years….not coincidentally about the same time that The Jets program started taking off with Coach Tenorio. The Wolverine’s rosters are full of kids that will be highly impactful Jets. The program will also send kids to the Hornets as well, I’m sure. Having 2 successsful youth football programs in Alameda can only have a positive affect on Island Football in the coming years. In the 70′s and 80′s, The Alameda Warriors fed both schools talent, and both schools enjoyed success.

  • The Truth

    The Jets have a few decent young players but AHS loaded to the point where their JV could beat Encinal Var this year.

    Come Reggie, break out the story if there is one.

  • Triton8

    The Alameda program is enjoying an incredible run right now….but lets not forget that The Jets and Saunders have 3 NCS Championships themselves…along with 2 NL MVP’s, an MLB 20 game winner and at least 3 World Series Championships!!! All of it is in the past, but you can’t forget past success!!!

    Keep in mind, if you combine Alameda and Encinal,you still have an enrollment smaller than most of the larger schools. The Island has had great success in both baseball and football…..

  • Reggie Hammond

    Triton8, there is some young talent. However, fact is, Encinal Jets baseball rolls with 11 varsity players. There are 2 other players on the JV that might be worth a call up. And, honestly speaking, the rest of the program are P.E. allstars (1st time players, ever.) Good kids, small talent, smaller potential.

    Encinal baseball, 22 strong for the last 10 years give or take.

    I’d hate the word segregation. But the demographics are the prof in the pudding. Hence, my point about there not being any or enough advertising on the west end for little league and babe ruth.

    fasho arnerich is a good coach, obviously, marr a good organizer and behind the scenes guy obviously, matthews loves baseball, but keep it fair (i guess is the right words to say). ye or ne?

  • Reggie Hammond

    The story is premature as of now. All i can say is there are 2 parts to this story. And my favorite, the latter is that there are some west end community leaders about to take action within its community.

  • The Truth

    Is it the “Poor me, I’m the victim” story that does nobody any good? You sound a lot like The King of Nothing.

  • AHSBaseballFollower

    As for demographics, you have to look at the AHS Baseball team, there is a large contingency of Asian players who are fast and strong but whose parents would likely never let them play Var FB due to the physical short term and long term risks that accompany FB. Thus the Asian concentration on baseball.

    Pavao, Woo, Leong, Lancaster, Dea, Yee are fast kids and probably 4 of them combined would beat the AHS 440 relay team or give them a run for their money. All of the kids are tight and would be in your receiver, dback slots if they played FB. Yee, Woo and Leong have powerful throwing arms while Pavao has top speed.

    Just ask their PE teachers….

  • Triton8

    WHAT?????

  • Reggie Hammond

    The Truth, lil buddy, I am, King of Something…

  • Reggie Hammond

    No victims here. Just progress.

  • The Truth

    As long as there isn’t a bunch of whining and entitlement mentality, we’re good. Read the entire thread and you’ll get the king reference.

  • Reggie Hammond

    lol. ya i got you. lol. had to read again.

  • Reggie Hammond

    The Truth, AHS JV could beat Encinal VAR. You are a dummy. The Truth; your a got damn lie…!

  • Reggie Hammond

    Anyways, The Truth, I hear your point. Obviously your being sarcastic. But damn…

  • Triton8

    I’m sorry….my “WHAT”? was referring to #68??????
