Calling it Quits

Yup, you read it right. I can't speak for Bucky, but I'm giving up the website when the URL comes up for renewal in May. The last ten years have been a lot of fun. I'll probably park the site on a subsite somewhere (I'll let you know), and we'll still have this site on blogger should something big comes up. But the $14.95 a year for the domain coupled with the diminishing chance of Bucky's return to professional ball makes it silly to continue.

Anyway thanks to all of you who made this little joke into a lot of fun. It was fun to see Bucky get to the Show; it's too bad he didn't stick longer.

The Question is, "Where's Bucky?"

I have received a number of e-mails from people around the country wondering where Bucky is and if he's done in baseball. Here's the answer:

Bucky is still up in the Pacific Northwest and is continuing to work out. The hope is to play ball this winter in a Winter League somewhere. As soon as I get more information this fall, I'll pass it along.

Bucky's Done in Mexico

From the transaction wire of the Mexian League (translation modified from

The Tabasco Olmecas activated Sharnol Adriana to their roster occupying the place of Bucky Jacobsen who was dropped.

It appears Adriana had played for the Dorados de Chihuahua before being released on April 11, 5 days after Bucky signed with Tobasco. In 16 games for the Dorados, Adriana hit .302 with 1 homer, 5 doubles and 7 RBIs.

Well, it was fun while it lasted. Hopefully another team in the league will give Bucky a call.

Bucky's agent e-mailed me and filled in more of the story. The Mexican League isn't where Bucky wants to end up, so he asked for his release to be able to workout back in Seattle and hopefully catch on in Japan or Korea.
