He then capped his career by pitching three outstanding playoff games in the tough CIF Division III bracket including two no hitters against Bishop Montgomery and St. Paul, two great hitting teams.His stellar baseball career continued at San Diego State after Derby was personally recruited to pitch for the Aztecs by the late baseball great and head coach Tony Gwinn.Derby started his Aztec career by striking out college great Kris Bryant (now with the Chicago Cubs) with the bases loaded, and then ended his collegiate career going head-to-head with Dillon Tate (first round draft pick for The Texas Rangers) in the first game of the NCAA Baseball Regionals. The Aztecs won three conference championships in a row riding on Derby’s arm.In June 2015, Bubba was drafted in the 6th round of the MLB Draft to play professionally for the Oakland Athletics. Darby was recently traded to the Milwaukee Brewers.Former Lancer Baseball Head Coach, Harry Agajanian, said, “Bubba, you have brought attention and class to La Salle and to Lancer Baseball. I can speak for the entire baseball program and the athletic department when I say that it has been a joy and a privilege to watch you perform and mature through your high school years and beyond. To commemorate your accomplishments as a student of the game, your jersey and number 11 will be retired and displayed on our outfield fence knowing that you will forever be regarded as a great Lancer.”La Salle High School, 3880 East Sierra Madre Blvd., Pasadena, (626) 351-8951 or visit Your email address will not be published.

7 essentials for an effective credit union website

Jay has … Web: Details Back in the 1980’s when Al Gore was cooking up his Internet scheme we could hardly imagine a knock-down, drag out fight today over how to capitalize on the power of this new digital medium. But fight we do. Are we doing enough with Digital Marketing? Are we doing too much? Are we doing the right things?Inquiring minds want to know.“The answer my friend, is blowing in the wind…” Actually, the answers to these questions lay in the goals we outline. What do we want the result to be? Said another way, what results do we expect from these on-line, digital activities? And how will we know if/when we have been successful?I don’t know much, but I do know there is a great deal in the digital space to cover. Today, I would like to discuss the 7 essentials to having an effective website (part of the whole Digital Marketing plan.)The Website must be simple and fresh. In today’s digital climate, the ability to communicate a brand through the simplicity of the site and the ability for any moron to navigate and find what they want is essential. Don’t make folks work that hard to get answers, knowledge or even to buy something!Web- Based, How-To Knowledge. We are all experts in financial services. Existing clients and prospects…not so much. A steady diet of simple “How-to” guides (Home Ownership, re-financing, etc.) and the like, along with branded videos that offer a different way to provide/access information, adds multiple layers of value for any institution. Not to mention the value to the viewer.Web-Analytics. Sports fans, there are dozens of tools available to help capture who has been to a web-site, clicked on what page/article and so forth. We must all plug some of these tools into what we are doing. We must capture who is in the market for something – and compel each one of these knowledge/product seekers to raise their hand. If we can get all the tire kickers to request additional information…then there would be no need for any other marketing, in any other medium.Search Engine optimization (SEO.) In Peoria, Illinois (pick your city) right now, someone at Caterpillar is enamored with getting a new pickup. They need a car loan. They are seeking information and options on the Internet. Will this prospect find us? Unless we have optimized our website to feature the “key words” and phrases specific to what people most often search for…the answer is no. Our site may be the prettiest, simplest and most content rich place on the planet – but if we can’t be found…then it only serves clients (maybe.)Search Engine Marketing (SEM.) SEM is essentially paid advertising for a myriad of online activities, usually based upon specific key words and phrases that we pay for to get top ranking. This area takes three forms for me, 1) traditional, sponsored ads for specific search terms, 2) localized maps where we can be listed and 3) ad-sense, the ability to post our ads in other web pages, so they can be seen again and again by folks that have come to our website and have interest in stuff we offer.Taking action. If we cannot act on this information, then why are we putting forth the effort? Marketing effort must be equally met with measurement, lead follow-up and sales. This should be the easy part. Yet if our sales and marketing teams are not aligned (or even talking to one another) and working in concert…we have a bigger problem.Measure everything. Marketing is mostly about lead generation. And we don’t have an unlimited budget. That said, we must use the most efficient methods to generate qualified leads for our sales team. If we don’t measure, we will never know. That ain’t right.This is hardly a comprehensive list of everything you must do with your web-site or even digital marketing as a whole – but in my opinion – these are the non-negotiable first steps. The 7 essential steps.Need help understanding these web-focused, digital options? Check out these guys. They can not only educate you, but train you on how you can do it yourself. Believe it!In order to have confidence that you are doing the right things with your website, you must identify what is possible and what you wish to accomplish. Then the fighting and debate will end. And won’t that be nice?last_img read more

Condon at his best on Riverside

first_img Only fifth jumping the final fence, the jockey brought his mount wide to make his challenge in the familiar JP McManus silks, but it looked in vain as top-weight Man With Van had gone clear. The welter burden began to take its toll, though, and as the leader’s stride shortened Condon forced Gordon Elliott’s six-year-old (9-1) up close home to score by a head to win over the bigger obstacles for the first time. The trainer said: “That was nice – he confirmed what he showed at Leopardstown. We didn’t know how he would handle the track, but he handled it well. He’ll make a nice three-mile chaser.” Ger Fox looked to have plenty to do jumping the last in fourth spot in the ‘Ulsters Real McCoy’ Handicap Chase, but Peter Kavanagh’s 6-1 shot Town Pond dug deep and collared Ardmillan – ridden by Fox’s twin brother Anthony – late on to score by a neck. Derek Fox delivered Feel The Air with a punishing run heading to two out in the Toals Best Value For Football Betting Handicap Hurdle and Mark McNiff’s 9-1 shot quickly asserted after the jumping the obstacle to win by seven lengths. Riverside City benefited from a power-packed ride by Davy Condon to win the Toals Bookmakers Ulster Grand National EBF Handicap Chase at Downpatrick. Condon said: ” That’s my first winner for JP and it’s an honour to wear these colours. We said we’d hunt him round and hope to be in with a squeak over the last two. I needed a clear run over the last two so I pulled him wide, and he winged the last. H e dug deep and will be a fun summer horse.” Elliott added: “This is a lucky track for us so it’s nice to win their big race. “We were worried about him getting the trip so we told Davy to ride him to be placed so that there was no pressure on him. Thankfully it worked out and Davy gave him a peach. We might take him to Punchestown for the long-distance chase.” Cheltenham Festival charity race winner Knight’s Parade earlier led home a one-two for Elliott after a dramatic conclusion to the Visit Rated Hurdle. The progressive five-year-old was sent off the 11-10 favourite after winning his last three ‘proper’ races, two of them over jumps and one on the Flat at Dundalk, but supporters must have been worrying as they entered the closing stages of the contest. Sailors Warn held every chance as they approached the second-last flight but crashed out, taking Massini’s Trap with him, and Condon had to get after King’s Parade to haul in stablemate Cape Glory on the run-in for a length victory. Elliott said of the winner: “He got hampered and stuck on the inside coming down the hill. He’s won four on the bounce for us so we’ll find another one for him. He’ll keep going.” Condon added: ” He’s a smashing horse who can go on to better things.” Ted Walsh’s 4-6 favourite Salsa Sensation gave backers a minor scare when clumsy at the third-last in the Maiden Hurdle, but Ruby Walsh always looked confident and led going to the last before winning by six and a half lengths.
