Dirtbags explained

Recommended Posts

Here's a pretty good article about how the Long Beach State 49'rs morphed into the "Dirtbags."  We've been Dirtbags for over 20 years now, but any press is good press...

I'm glad they interviewed Yogi! for the article.  He's a great guy, and a helluva field-ologist now.  Being called a "Dirtbag" (in a baseball conversation) 

is a badge of honor.  You can see our Major Leaguers' eyes light-up when asked about the "Dirtbag" work ethic and what it means to them.  Last year, I was thrilled to get some pictures of my North Carolina nephews' little league team... They were the "Dirtbags!"

I'm proud to be a Dirtbag alumni, and still try to play the game the right way on Sundays.

Basically the Dirtbags mantra means to me- Leave your best on the field, and take some dirt with you when you leave.

I'm spittin' distance from Blair field. Anyone going to any games this season?

Every Tuesday game at least!  Some Sunday games; depending on my rec.-league schedule.  I'll usually take a Friday or Sat. off from time to time as well, depending on how the teams' doing..

...Which is not good after being swept at ASU this weekend, while being outscored 20-2...
