Rattlers at the All Star Game at Double Angel Field, June 26th. We were on the home team, which as you can see on the scoreboard, won a pitcher's duel, 16-15. From L-R: Steve Brouwer, Zach Cook, Jopy Willis and Bill Rogan. Jopy went 3-3 with 2 walks, a double, HR, 3 runs scored and 5 RBI's and is holding his MVP Award. By the way, where is the number on the front of Zach's uniform?  Jopy has a number on the front of his uni as you can barely see the top of his number 5 above his award.

Broadcast history!The June 26th game versus the Sky Sox at Double Angel Field was broadcast live on the internet at www.goalmaster28.com. It was the second NABA game ever broadcast, the first one West of the Mississippi. The first NABA game ever televised took place in New York at Dutchess Stadium. Casey Bloyer and Justin Adams were the announcers for this classic game, won by the Orioles, in dramatic fashion, 6-5 on a walk off single by Garrick Sasa. Baseball historians are already calling this game one of the best not only in NABA history but all of baseball history. If you would like to purchase a DVD of this monumental battle, you can do so for $20 at www.goalmaster28.com.

"Thanks to SLAMMERS, I'm a perennial NABA Over 35-All Star!" - Steve Brouwer, Orioles Catcher/Manager (First row, 7th from the left in above photo).

2) BR batting for the Orioles
3) BR at the Home Run Derby before the 2012 All Star Game at Double Angel Field in Parker, Colorado (www.doubleangel.org).  The proceeds went to benefit the Garrett Exstrom Memorial Fund (http://www.iballstats.com/denver-co ). This mighty cut resulted in, hopefully, the ball getting out of the infield. Note the huge crowd and how riveted the kid in the T-shirt in the dugout is .
