MT. SPRINGS MYSTICS: Jamie Ulrich

Name Jamie T. Ulrich
BBL Team Name Mt. Springs Mystics
Origin of Team Name The Mt. Springs Hotel (located in Ephrata, Pa.) is a historic building that used to serve as the town hospital and then a hotel.  During the late 60’s/early 70’s it was also known as Camp Silver Bell and hosted many meetings of occult-oriented people that conducted séances and the like.  Never went in for that kind of stuff but the name hit me one day and I kind of liked it.
E-Mail Address jtulrich@desupernet.net
Personal Web Site None (yet)
Family Information A wife (Tracey) and 2 Boston Terriers (Bandit & Bunny).  Bunny is a formerly abused dog we adopted through a Boston Terrier rescue group.
Hometown Ephrata, Pa (born)
Phone # (trade hot line) Best bet is e-mail.  My work hours are a bit extreme but my home phone is 717-445-0353.
Years playing APBA 27 and counting
Years playing APBA BBW As long as it’s been out – 10 – 11 years (?)
Years playing in APBA leagues 11 years (so far)
Favorite Baseball Team Live and die with the Phillies – usually the latter.  Also like the BoSox and Expos (unless Felipe Alou moves on).
Hobbies that don't involve sitting in front of a screen Homebrewing beer and do-it-yourself home projects (a great combination! <g>)
Occupation Information Systems for Amtrak (Network Support Manager)
If I could have seen any even in the history of sports, I would love to have seen:
  1. Ruth’s called shot (a classic)
  2. Pee Wee Reese putting his arm around Jackie Robinson (a class act)
  3. A replay of the 1980 US Hockey team's final game in the Olympics.
DH? Used to hate it.  Now I’m torn.  I can understand both sides of the issue.
Pete Rose? Thinks he belongs in the Hall.  If Ty Cobb can make it , anyone can.  I believe Rose should just ‘fess up and be done with it.
Bud Selig? Used to hate him but I think he has done some good things for the game.  Still think any Commissioner shouldn’t have ties to any one team though.
Favorite MLB Player While Growing Up  Mike Schmidt
Favorite Current MLB Player Nomar Garciaparra & Scott Rolen
Favorite MLB Players Not on Your BBL Team Garciaparra, Griffey, McGwire, Rolen
Favorite Players on Your BBL Team Chavez, Reese, Carpenter, Marrero
Your Team Strengths Too soon to tell – hopefully youth and emerging talent!
Your Team Weaknesses Too many to list!  SS is up there.
Comments Loving it all so far.  Just wish I had more time to spend enjoying it.   Really looking forward to the draft and hopefully being a lot more competitive next year!
