Ken Korach's Community Fund Poker Event

I was one of the 48 players in today's Oakland A's Community Fund charity poker event hosted by Ken Korach at the Warehouse in Oakland in support of Oakland schools baseball and was lucky enough to come in 4th.

I would like to thank all the A's folk in the radio team and front office and the staff at the Warehouse for putting on the event, with a special thanks to Ray Fosse for obtaining and donating the sports memorabilia, including balls signed by Bob Feller, Dennis Eckersley, Travis Buck, Jack Cust (my prize) and Eric Chavez.  Vince Cotroneo, the last surviving member of the A's contingent in the tournament, played well and with a little more luck could have been late to work.  With a break for lunch, the action lasted all the way to the arrival of the marine layer around 5:00 PM, making our trips home or to the game a relief from this week's (and today's) heat.
