The sold out evening was held on the private beaches of The Strand in Dana Point for Oceana. Over 400 guests attended.Oceana ambassador January Jones mingled with guests and addressed the audience about her work with Oceana to protect sharks.“I’ve long been a supporter of Oceana and have been fortunate enough to work with them on their efforts to save sharks,” Jones told the crowd. “These are some of the most fascinating — and threatened — creatures in our oceans.”The evening’s honoree, Dr. Enric Sala, took the stage to accept Oceana’s Ocean Heroes award. Sala, founder and leader of the National Geographic Society’s Pristine Seas project, works with his team to identify, explore, survey and, ultimately, protect the ocean’s last-remaining wild places. His upcoming book PRISTINE SEAS: Journeys to the Ocean’s Last Wild Places (National Geographic Books; September 22, 2015), highlights ten of these untouched sites. Most recently, Sala returned from an expedition to explore the remote Artic seas. Upon receiving his award, he stated:“Protecting the ocean must be a collective effort that involves each and every one of us every day. With the support of organizations like Oceana and National Geographic, we can and will make a difference for the ocean — whether through individual choices or combined action.”SeaChange guests were treated to specialty Nolet cocktails and a delicious dinner. The evening included presentations from Oceana executives and celebrity supporters. Guests also raised their paddles in both silent and live auctions. The program this year focused on Oceana’s Save the Oceans; Feed the World campaign, which aims to restore the biodiversity and abundance of the world’s oceans to support a growing global population.Oceana CEO Andrew Sharpless spoke about Oceana’s work, stating:“Thanks to our SeaChange supporters, Oceana has grown tremendously in the past few years, tackling problems that are global in nature with a country-by-country approach that’s achieving measurable results. Oceana has now protected over 1.2 million square miles of ocean and achieved dozens of policy victories that will protect these places for the future.”The evening was capped with a musical performance by actress and singer Bethany Joy Lenz. Party-goers then spent time dancing in the ocean breeze at the Post Party Lounge.SeaChange was co-chaired by Oceana Board Member Valarie Van Cleave and Oceana Council Member Eve Kornyei Ruffatto.The highlight of the evening auction was the lively bidding for an exquisite retreat at the Gili Lankanfushi Resort in the Maldives.

Griffey In His Prime Was The Second Coming Of Willie Mays

September 28, 2019

But let’s say we give in and run the same exercise without giving extra weight to the most thrilling years of Griffey’s career. In that case, we find Roger Maris, whose single-season home-run record Griffey flirted with in 1994 before labor strife brought the season to an abrupt halt. This is a telling comparison. Over their respective careers, Mays and Maris boasted nearly identical marks in power, contact and plate patience, but they differed greatly in the most dynamic areas of the game: speed and defense.Likewise, late-career Griffey retained much of his familiar hitting profile, but he became unrecognizable in the field and on the basepaths. After stealing 167 bases in the first 11 years of his career, Griffey swiped only 17 over his final 11 seasons. He also joined the likes of Adam Dunn and Manny Ramirez as one of baseball’s least valuable fielders over his final major-league decade, an outcome that seemed unthinkable when Junior was pulling fly balls off the wall at a dead sprint and doing his “I got it” routine across the Great Lakes. The effect is so extreme that if we invert the prime-weighting scheme from above, instead giving excess weight to a player’s worst seasons, Griffey suddenly profiles like a lumbering slugger in the mold of Kevin Mitchell or Prince Fielder — a far cry from the sprightliness of his ’90s heyday.But here’s the thing: While Kevin Mitchell and Prince Fielder were and are, uh, hefty, they’re also pretty good players. Among non-pitchers since 19133The earliest season, continuous from 2015, for which FanGraphs tracks strikeout rate for batters. with 3,000 or more career trips to the plate, each ranks in the top third in WAR on a per-plate appearance basis. His skills may have been undermined by constant injuries, an ill-fated contract and geriatric napping, but even in winter, one of Griffey’s closest comps was a 31-year-old six-time All-Star.There are many faces to Griffey’s stardom. He might have been baseball’s last truly mainstream superstar, which takes on even more meaning in a sport with an ever-dwindling base of African-American players. The iconography of Griffey — the fun-loving, video game-endorsing, steroid-free natural athlete — always meant his case for the Hall rested on more than mere numbers. But as we all celebrate Griffey’s career this week, it’s worth remembering that Griffey’s numbers are no mere thing, and his statistical legacy isn’t so fragile as to topple over at the first gust of scrutiny. Even during his worst days, Griffey remained an All-Star-caliber player; during his best, he really was the second coming of Willie Mays.Read More: Mike Piazza Was More Than A Big BatBaseball’s Hall Of Fame Is Stuck In The ’60s One hundred percent of public ballots have Ken Griffey Jr. going into the Baseball Hall of Fame, which should surprise exactly no one. The only suspense Junior’s election year was ever going to see was the question of how close he comes to unanimity, and whether or not the Baseball Writers’ Association of America conscripts an ordained bishop and a team of surveyors to find and consecrate center field at the site of the old Kingdome.It’s been a while since a position player of Griffey’s caliber went into Hall of Fame Day so certain of induction — Rickey Henderson in 2009 was probably the last — and a lot of the ink that’s been spilled over Griffey focuses on the more ethereal qualities that made him the face of a generation (a generation starving for Hall of Fame consideration, I might add): his style; his athleticism; that grin; that effortless, fluid, magisterial swing.If hall voters could vote in a GIF, I swear to God this thing would have a plaque by the second ballot.Statistically, though, Griffey isn’t talked about in exactly the same way as most players. His artistry was so unimpeachable, his heights so dizzying, and his fall so precipitous, it seemed, that talking about the full measure of his career in the persnickety, CPA-hued style of the modern baseball apparatus not only feels like stapling together two completely different players — The Kid and a mere, fallible mortal — but also carries a certain inevitable, Nearer, My God, to Thee sadness about the career he might have had.This is a mistake. The mystique of Ken Griffey Jr. doesn’t diminish any when held up to the lamp. If anything, panning reality out of myth only seems to grow the myth.Consider: If we break down Griffey’s skills1Adjusted for park effects. relative to the major league average — giving excess weight to his best wins above replacement seasons, to better capture what he was like in his prime — and look for players with similar profiles in their best years,2Generating similarity scores by summing the squared differences of any two players’ percentile ranks in five skill categories — contact rate, isolated power, walk rate, running ability (which includes speed score and baserunning runs) and defensive WAR — and weighting the differences according to each category’s influence on overall WAR. the prime version of Griffey was the closest thing the majors have ever seen to the great Willie Mays. Mays had a slightly better eye at the plate, made more contact and was a better runner. Otherwise, peak Griffey was the spitting image of the Say Hey Kid’s best years: a profanely powerful hitter and elite defensive outfielder with great speed and patience, and solid contact skills.(Griffey’s second-most similar prime-to-prime player was his former Mariners teammate Alex Rodriguez — no slouch in his best years, either.) read more


Commentary Say what Coach Fickell needs to mind his mouth

September 28, 2019

We’re all aware of Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee’s propensity for regrettable one-liner remarks, but first-year OSU head football coach Luke Fickell unleashed a howler of his own during a Tuesday press conference. “We hope we get better,” Fickell said during his first visit with the media since the Buckeyes’ 24-6 loss at Miami. Is that so, coach? You “hope” your team gets better? President Gee couldn’t have said it better himself. Fickell’s remark strikes me as troubling because any coach on any football team, especially a first-year coach attempting to uphold 122 years of Buckeyes football tradition, needs to be proactive in improving their team, not hoping. What the Buckeyes need right now is a clear plan and discernible end in mind, especially with regard to the team’s dilemma at the quarterback position. Fickell said that while the media may tend to focus on quarterback play, he focuses on every facet of his team. “It’s focused on the quarterbacks, but we’ve got to do a better job all-in-all,” he said. “Whether it’s offensively or defensively… we’ve got to find a way to get our best 11 on the field.” Whew. That’s more like it from the Buckeyes’ head coach. He’s talking about improving the team and finding the pieces to the puzzle that will help the team succeed. But wait! Fickell produced another gaff as his press conference ended while explaining why he didn’t use a timeout during a fourth-quarter Miami drive that lasted 8:48 and bled the game clock down to less than one minute. “It ultimately didn’t end up hurting us,” Fickell said. What do you mean it didn’t hurt the team, coach? You didn’t utilize your timeouts, a valuable tool at your disposal, which, aside from stopping the clock earlier in Miami’s drive, could have served the Buckeyes in several ways. At the very least, you could have given your defense a breather since that particular Hurricanes’ drive lasted for the better part of ten minutes. Only a select group of people gets to see the team at every practice and team function, so I, along with all of Buckeye Nation, must give Fickell the benefit of the doubt when it comes to helping the Buckeyes improve. Fickell needs to do a little better than hoping his team will improve, as well as kidding himself that his team wouldn’t have benefitted from the use of a timeout at some point in the fourth quarter against Miami. With that attitude, Fickell could be hoping for a new job at another program in the near future. read more
