Rogue Valley Sports Update, Monday, July 22nd

Monday, July 22, 2019 – Sports Update from Rogue Valley Magazine

Father-Son Tennis Duo Claim Second Championship Title in Ashland

Just like last year, Kory and Rox Rogers took the championship at the Big Al’s Tennis Tournament at Hunter Park in Ashland. The duo won the three day tournament last year; they were runners up in 2017.

Lori Rogers, wife and mother of Kory and Rox, respectively, came up short in the 4.5 doubles. Lori had partnered with her son and former Ashland high standout, Rox, for the win in 2018.

Rogues weekend wrap-up – It’s a winning streak as the Rogues sweep the South Bay Storm

Second seed in the Golden State collegiate Baseball league, your Medford Rogues are up 35-12 on the season; punishing the South Bay Storm in 5 straight games. It was a 10-7 win on the final Family Fun Sunday of the season at Harry and David Field. The crowd even brought their brooms in anticipation!

Saturday the Rogues overtook the Storm 5-2 for the annual Christmas in July game supporting Access; Gilbert Romero picked up his first win for the storm, striking out 6 in just over 5 innings. Friday was game 3 win over the Storm; final score 9-4.

And tonight it’s…Ladies night! All ladies get in free for tonight’s Rogues game at H&D field

The Rogues know what the ladies want, and the ladies want free baseball, posters and…Moose Munch! Tonight is full of fun free team posters while they last and a Moose Munch give away! There are only 3 home games left this Rogues season but you can get your poster signed right after the game!

Tuesday is fan appreciation night and the players will be going all out. There will be a home run derby before the game; Happy hour starts when the gates open at 4; the derby starts at 4:30 Tuesday. As always, the game will start at 6:35.

Baseball’s Seattle Mariner great Edgar Martinez, who used to weigh his bats to make sure of their precision, carefully weighed his words Sunday as he accepted his induction into the National Baseball Hall of Fame.

He also gave a quick estimate on his newest prize possession, his Hall of Fame plaque that will now hang with the rest of baseball’s greats for perpetuity.

Martinez carried more than just his new bronze plaque as he stood on stage in front of a huge throng filling the open field outside the Clark Sports Center and delivered a perfect 12-minute speech. He carried also the pride of Mariners fans who flocked across the country to celebrate with him as the 56-year-old finally ended his long journey to the Hall in his 10th and final year of eligibility.
