Bear Grylls for sure.

Probably invisibility so that I could bug, annoy, and generally torment all of my friends, family, and coworkers.

Ports in the Playoffs

With the 2016 Major League Baseball playoffs beginning, fans can look forward to another exciting October of full of late-inning heroics, iconic plays, and nail bitters every step of the way. While Ports fans may be left without their big league club Oakland Athletics reaching the playoffs this season, there are still plenty of reasons to keep up with the action.

Aside from being one of the best sporting events to follow, this year’s MLB playoffs feature three former Stockton Ports, all of whom at one time in their professional careers have called Banner Island Ballpark home. As we look at each former Port, be sure to keep up with them as each one will be sure to play a vital role throughout the playoffs.

Brett Anderson– Pitcher, Los Angeles Dodgersanderson

2016 MLB Stats– 1-1, 6.75 ERA, 9.1 IP, 10 SO

2008 Stockton Ports Stats- 9-4, 4.14 ERA, 74 IP, 80 SO

Brett Anderson was part of a very special Stockton Ports team during the 2008 season which ended up winning the California League Championship. The title was the last championship the Ports have won, and it also served as the first championship since the opening of Banner Island Ballpark. Anderson proved to be one of the Ports’ best pitchers that season and racked up a total of 9 wins and struck out 80 batters in 74 innings pitched. Anderson was eventually called up to Double-A Midland that season and named to the MLB Futures team. This season, Stockton Ports fans welcomed Anderson back as he appeared in a rehab assignment for the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes against the Ports at Banner Island Ballpark. With Anderson healthy and ready to contribute to the Dodgers, look for his MLB experience to come in handy down the stretch for the Dodgers as they look to capture a World Series title.


Josh Donaldson– Third Baseman, Toronto Blue Jaysjosh-donaldson-catcher

2016 MLB Stats- .284 AVG, 37 HR, 99 RBI, .404 OBP

2008 Stockton Ports Stats- .330 AVG, 9 HR, 39 RBI, .391 OBP

Also on the 2008 California League Champion Stockton Ports team was then catcher Josh Donaldson. After a midseason trade between the Athletics and Cubs landed Donaldson on the Ports, Donaldson provided the Ports with a powerful bat and strong glove behind home plate. In only 47 games played with the Ports, Donaldson tore through the California League and hit a stellar .330 with 39 total RBI.

Now in his second season with Toronto, Donaldson continues to be one of the most feared hitters in the American League. After being traded to the Blue Jays in the offseason following the 2014 season, Donaldson received AL MVP honors with the Jays in the 2015 season and picked up right where he left off with another impressive performance in 2016.


Addison Russell– Shortstop, Chicago Cubsimg_1610

2016 MLB Stats- .238 AVG, 21 HR, 95 RBI, .321 OBP

2013 Stockton Ports Stats- .275 AVG, 17 HR, 60 RBI, .377 OBP

As a young 19-year-old joining the Stockton Ports in 2013, Russell already had a tremendous amount of hype surrounding him. While the 2013 Stockton Ports team proved to be mediocre in the standings column, Russell proved otherwise. Starting out slow that season, Russell eventually came around with a hot bat and tremendous glove in the infield. By season’s end, Russell finished with a .275 batting average along with 17 home runs and 60 RBI. To cap off a strong second-half surge, Russell was named an Oakland A’s organizational All-Star, captured Cal League Rookie of the Year honors, and was selected to the MLB Futures Game.

Since joining the Chicago Cubs in 2015, Russell has proved to be one of the rising stars in the game today and has been a key piece to the puzzle as the Cubs have reached the playoffs two years in a row. Russell was named an NL All-Star this season and will look to end Chicago’s World Series drought, something the Wrigley Faithful have waited on for over 100 years.
