Track Aids

April 9, 2014
By

It used to be that the only thing a kid had to improve his track performance was a starting block.  On the old cinder tracks they were heavy metal devices with spikes that stuck into the cinders.   Today these starting blocks are aluminum with very tiny spikes and the block is easy to adjusted to each...

Remembering Roy!!

April 8, 2014
By

As a follow up to yesterday’s article on Larry Sintz who is being inducted into the Indiana Refereeing Hall of Fame, memories of a fellow Hall of Famer came to mind.  I am speaking of Roy Gardner of Batesville who was inducted many years ago for his outstanding career in refereeing.  Before Roy’s untimely...

A new racket sport is beginning to catch on all over the United States.  It is called Pickle Ball.  You can play it with either two or four players.  Most pickle ball players use solid wood paddles and a perforated ball.  The strategy of the game is to hit the ball over a net. ...

Pat O’Neill

April 3, 2014
By

You have heard me mention Pat O’Neill a couple of times in past articles.  Pat was a legendary football coach  from the late 40′s to the 60′s at Lawrenceburg High School.  He also coached baseball, but that is another story all in itself.  I have touched upon that several times in the past.  This...

Call-In Shows

As I am sitting here watching the snow come down writing this article, I am thinking–What if this is happening the day this article appears on the Website?  If it does, Marty Brenneman and his side kick for that day will have to bring out their “banana phone” to field questions while the snow/rain delay goes...

Opening Day

March 31, 2014
By

This is the traditional “Opening Day” for major league baseball.  However, in this era where television dictates every schedule imaginable, two major league games have already been played.  The Dodgers and Diamondbacks played 10 days ago in Australia and that counts for their season.  The Dodgers won both games, and so they are 2...

Dodge Ball

March 28, 2014
By

I recently read where many schools have outlawed the game of dodge ball for phys. ed. classes.  I am not sure what their thinking is, because in most cases the balls used were soft and about the only marks they ever left might be a little red welt if they hit you in a...

Transportation

March 27, 2014
By

In the early days when I was coaching, it was up to the coach to find transportation to away contests unless it was basketball or football.  This meant that kids usually were asked to drive.  No one seemed to be too concerned about liability, but as I think back now, what a risk we were...
