What the heck do I DO for the ORoyals? Part II

That's my sharp-dressed boss, Ben Hemmen.

Yesterday I walked you through what I do when I get to the stadium, up until the game starts. Here’s the rest. Hopefully by the time our Kid of the Game is finished taking the lineup card to the umpires, we’ve got our own lineup card filled out with a great crop of contestants. Assuming …

What the heck do I DO for the ORoyals? Part I


I refer frequently to my job with the Omaha Royals, but it occurs to me that I’ve never really outlined what I actually DO there. So, here’s that. Today is the pregame duties; Part II will be the in-game and post-game stuff. 90 or more minutes before first pitch: Arrive and head toward the “promo …

Player personalities: Dyson, Moustakas, Lucas and more

Casteneda candid 01

Note: This is a busy time for me, with two different jobs in two different cities intersecting, but I will try to MAKE some time for blogging. We’ll see how this goes. Some dugout stories from Friday: Long before Friday’s game started, only a few Royals players were outside. Most game days at this time, …

Some photos from last night’s ORoyals win

Anthony Lerew hydrating before his start.

Sure, the Omaha Royals are in last place, but it’s not nearly as hopeless a position as their big-league counterparts. After last night’s win, Omaha is 4.5 games out of first. Here are a couple of photos from the game. To see more, start at #76 in this Facebook album. It was a rather ugly …

Tidbits: Disco, babies, etc.

– As you’ve perhaps heard, the Royals released Disco Hayes. Greg Schaum asked me to share some thoughts on his site, RoyalsProspects.com. You can go read that, if you wish. And comment and such, please. – My brother and his wife welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world early this morning. (Did my brother …

Some photos from last night’s ORoyals domination

Omaha beat Albuquerque last night, 13-1. Last night’s pictures start at picture #19 in this Facebook photo album. Here is my favorite – it’s Irving Falu leaping to turn a double play.

Kila Ka’aihue doesn’t think he’s the best hitter EVAR…

…and other stuff from tonight’s double-header. For some reason I was grumpy when I got to work today. I pretty much wanted to punch every face I came across for the first hour or so I was there. Don’t ask why – it was one of those dumb days where all the petty stupid stuff …

ORoyals back in town tonight

An odd schedule this summer means the Omaha Royals are out of town almost as much in July as they were in June. After the eternal CWS-induced road trip, the Royals were back in town for just two games last weekend, then immediately hit the road again for a series at New Orleans. After this …

Fireworks, America, and a trade

All I really wanted for my birthday was an Omaha Royals win. My day and my celebration were built around that game, and everything would be dampened if the ORoyals had lost. And thanks to a trio of ORoyals home runs – capped by a Rick Ankiel walkoff winner! – I got my wish and …

Ed Lucas’ big night wasted in loss

Tonight in Des Moines, Ed Lucas fell just a double shy of the cycle and drove in five runs. It was only the 2nd time in his career that he’s homered and tripled in the same game – the other one was July 24, 2008. The O-Royals ended up losing 8-7 to the I-Cubs. After …
