Darin Kracl of the Medford A’s
The Medford Rogues will be paying tribute to the former Medford A’s on June 4 by wearing throwback uniforms. Fireworks will follow the game.
As a huge A’s fan since birth (the A’s moved to Oakland the year I was born, and I was born just a few miles from the Oakland Coliseum), it was extremely disappointing to me that the A’s no longer had an affiliate in Medford when I moved to Ashland in 2000. Next Saturday night I can pretend I’m watching the Medford A’s.
Darin Kracl was one of my best friends growing up. We cut school once or twice to catch an A’s game. I’m still jealous that he got to pitch for them.
The Security Project (5/22/16)
Matt O’Donnell’s RBI triple in the second inning was out of reach for the Lebanon outfielder.
This hit proved to be all Ashland would need thanks to a fine pitching performance.
Ashland High School defeated Lebanon yesterday in Ashland, 4-0. Wilsonville will be coming to Ashland for the round of sixteen on Wednesday (5/25/16).
Peyton Fuller threw a complete game (7 innings) shutout with 9 strikeouts

Throwing it back to last summer when we spent four days and three nights on the Rogue River.
Details here. What the article does not mention is that the Raiders won the trophy despite not having teams in several of the sports (like men’s golf, women’s golf, and baseball).
Last night the rankings locked for the OSAA 5A baseball playoffs. Ashland High School came it at #7 in the state and in third place in the Midwestern League. This means the Grizz will have a home game on Friday (5/20/16) against the sixth place team from Mid-Willamette (Lebanon, ranked #28 in the state). Since the Grizzlies finished in the top eight, a win over Lebanon will get them another home game on May 25.
