an unprecedented 4th consecutive Alaska State American Legion Baseball
Championship! No team in the history of Alaska American Legion
Baseball had ever won more than 2 consecutive championships before the
East squad won their 3rd last year and now unbelievably they have won a
4th straight in 2006. The team finished the season with 31 wins and 10
losses (including a 26-6 record against Alaska competition).
Anchorage Daily News Story
Farewell from the desk of Coach Wylie:
As I say goodbye and end my coaching career at East I want to thank
each and every member of the East Tbird Baseball family over the last 9
years. Players and coaches alike! I also want to thank my
family. My wife of 30 plus years, Suzy never once complained
although she might have gotten after me a time, or two when I was sulking
over a loss. She spent many a freezing evening sitting on a metal
bench supporting my "hobby," of course she knows about as much
about the game of
baseball as anyone I know. I can pretty much guarantee that my
father Jerry has seen more East games than anyone during my coaching
career. I always felt special when I would look into the stands and
see my father there to support me. My kids Jeremy, a former
outstanding Tbird player himself and part-time assistant coach and my
daughter Cristy who led many a "East Side---Tbirds" cheer from the stands
over the last 9 years. Oh and I have to mention our newest family
addition Kolby Mitchell Jensen, son of Cristy and Ken Jensen, born just
after this years state tournament. I can already tell Kolby will be
a great pitcher with good movement on his fastball (he has long fingers)!
After this years state tournament victory I was asked what it
was about the group of players over the last 4 years that have allowed
them to make history by becoming the most dominate team ever in Alaska
American Legion history. My answer was once again the same: I have been very fortunate
to have had a group of talented athletes come through the East program during my tenure
that had a desire to improve and (for the most part) possessed a work
ethic to make team success a reality.
I am proud of
our team success during my tenure as head coach (.772 winning percentage
with 336 wins & 99 losses and 5 state titles, including the last 4
American Legion titles and an .835 winning percentage for high school with
a final record of 76-15) but I think I am more proud of the fact that
since 1999 we have had, or will have by this fall, 28 players go on to
play college baseball. That is an average of 4 players per year!
Next year we should have 10 players from our program on college baseball
teams (and another one playing professionally)! There are very few
programs in the country that can say that and it is absolutely amazing for
a baseball program from Alaska!
Remember, we have proven again that we are one
of the best teams in Alaska baseball history, now
itís up to us to stay there!
Thank you and
Tbird ace Corey Madden has been moved up to the Marlins A-Advanced team,
the Jupiter Hammerheads. While in rookie league Corey was 4-1 with
12 appearances. He pitched 19 and 2/3 innings, had 21 K's and
his ERA was 2.75.
The 2006 Tbirds over-all
American Legion record ended at 31-12 following a pair of losses at
the Region 7 Northwest Regionals. The Tbirds held a 4-3 lead going
into the 9th inning of the feature game but committed 2 errors in the
inning and lost 5-4. Chad Nading and Zac Beltz both pitched well,
allowing a pair of hits each and Chad also had 9 strikeouts but in the end faulty defense (7 errors) did
us in. (including HS the Tbirds
finished the 2006 season with a 41-16 record).
