Indoor Pitching/Catching Practice

Hi Powell Little League families,

In an effort to build up our pitcher and catcher skills in our league, we are trying something new this winter.  We are offering an indoor practice space available once a week just for pitchers and catchers to get in practice time.  Anyone is welcome, but it is limited to only working on these 2 positions. Please check out the following information and join us if it fits your child!

Who: Baseball and softball players who are interested in working on their skills at the positions of pitcher or catcher

Come from behind 5th inning lifts Goblins over Monkeys

Essex Field, Portland, OR

The Green Goblins and the Blue Monkeys (Portland LL A) squared off on Essex Field on April 28th. As the home team, the Blue Monkeys jumped out to a 5-1 lead at the end of the first. But that's when the Green Goblins defense stepped up, allowing only two more runs over the next 4 innings. In the 2nd catcher Will Hannan tagged out a runner coming home. In the 3rd, after a hit to right, Eli Koehler took the relay and threw out the runner going to third, with Aidan O'Brien making the tag. In the 4th Yona Voss-Andrae made a great catch on a drive to left field. Thoughout, 1st baseman Ehman Tanneholz hung on to the ball and made the plays. In the top of the 5th, the Green Goblins took the lead 8-7, and in the bottom of the 5th, things got interesting. Finbar O'Brien walked the first batter, who stole 2nd and advanced to 3rd on an error. With nobody out and the tying run on 3rd, Finbar and battery partner Eli Koehler took care of the ball and the rest of the game as they struck out the next three batters to preserve the win.

Minors Baseball Game wrap: Wookies 6, Eagles 3.

Brooklyn Park Field, Portland, OR

It was a hard fought game with the Wookies jumping out to a 5-0 lead as the visiting team.  Another run by the Wookies in the 2nd inning put them at 6-0. The Eagles re-grouped with some solid defense and were able to close them down 1-2-3 in the 3rd and 4th innings.  Eagles were held scoreless until a bottom of the 5th rally in which the Eagles scored 3 runs but were unable to overtake the Wookies before the third out.  Eagles 2-1 going into this weekend's game, and the Wookies remain unbeaten.

Picture Day is May 5th

Powell Little League picture day will be held Saturday, May 5th at Sewallcrest Park.  Coaches will be in touch with players and parents once they have scheduled team session times in the next few days.

A big change to the picture ordering process this year is that all orders must now be done online prior to picture day (no more paper forms).  You can place your order online here at the By Design Sports Photography website.  When you place your order, use the online ordering code:  PLL12.  This will ensure your order is matched to our league. After you've completed your order, remember to print out your confirmation form and bring that with you to the picture session.
