I was going to blog on all the dogpiles of the CWS qualifying teams, but couldn't find all the pictures. So instead I'm going to blog about the best dogpile I've ever seen.
This is when the Huskers made it to the CWS in 2005. And the stripy socks were all the rage. Looking back, there are 4 major leaguers on that team.
The guy running to the pile out of uniform is the great Alex Gordon. 'Why is he out of uniform' you ask, 'he was thrown out of the game for back talking to an ump' I answer.
The big guy leaning on the pile on the right side the Joba 'F***ing Bugs' Chamberlain. Note: he can't get off the ground.
The second fellow from the left is Zach Kroenke. He is almost up to the Yankees bullpen. If he's not yet, he will be by the end of the year.
Right under him (all you see is the head) is Brian Duensing, he was in the Twins bullpen earlier this year.
It was a blast! Sweeping Miami in 2 games! Ahhh, those were the days!
