Jake Locker played his first game for the Bellingham Bells this week on Sunday and had one of his better performances, going 1-2 with a walk, two stolen bases and two runs scored as the Bells beat Spokane 5-3.
The Bells are now 6-9. Locker has played in seven games, starting six in center field, hitting .227 (5-22) with two extra-base hits (double, homer) and five runs scored. He also has stolen three bases in four attempts.
The Bells play this week in Wenatchee but Locker isn't expected to participate.

What did you think of Rockne's article about UW raising 20 mill to sndow scholarships. About 50% of UW athletic scolarships are now endowed. How does that compare with other schools and conference average?

Are major league scouts going to these things, that you have heard?
If so, are they scouting Jake, or other guys?

Major League scouts are definitely at these games. They may not be upper level guys, but area scouts go to all of these college summer leagues. Area scouts may work for several different teams though. They find players and then report to their regional scouts to get interest going. The scouts are paid based on if a player they discover is signed.

There is at least one scout at every game - Locker's coach scouts for the Brewers.

In other (semi-related UW) basesball news . . . and for those who are interested . . . Johnny DuRocher is playing here: http://wisconsin.timberrattlers.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t572
It's interesting to see he's pitching on the sames staff as Phillippe Aumont - the M's #1 draft pick from last year.

There are scouts at these games all the time. That's one of the major points for the existence of these leagues is that they use wooden bats to most accurately replicate the pro game.
As for Rockne's article, it was interesting. I don't know how that compares to other Pac-10 schools although I know it doesn't touch Stanford, which I think has just about everything endowed, including salaries of coaches. Maybe I'll try to write a story comparing at some point.

Actually Doug, it's because Jake is not a team guy. He cares more about himself and having fun playing baseball in the summer than he does preparing for the upcoming football season. It's why he will never be successful.
It's just like Ty, who cares more about playing golf and withdrawing scholarships from hard working kids who were never given a chance to succeed than recruiting. Probably, Ty was golfing when someone else recruited Jake while he was playing high school baseball when he was supposed to be with the football team in summer workouts.
Bob, I will be away next week. Please have Doug and jh exterminated by the time I return.

The 2008 schedule you have posted on seattletimes.com is wrong. We're at WSU.

Locker not a team guy? Are you kidding me? The fact that a young 20 year old college student with a schedule most people cannot even image consisting of practices, lifting, school, working, media appointments, camps and volunteer work wants to take a few days out of a already short summer and play a game that he has played since he was 4 years old means he's not a team guy? He has probably played in 6-8 games on the weekends when there is no football committments going on, he probably shouldn't sleep either, that would be extremely selfish of him!!!!!! Good for him to find a little time for himself and enjoy something he loves and his family can enjoy with him as well. Doesn't everybody need a little of that?
