Umpiring Baseball

July 20, 2015
By

The other day I was watching a Youth League baseball championship game.  It was a great contest between two very good young baseball teams.  Unfortunately, the game ended on a sour note. I have umpired many ball games in the past and know how tough it is to make calls on the field.  One...

Jimmie Rollins

July 17, 2015
By

This year Jimmie Rollins, a veteran baseball player, is playing for the Los Angeles Dodgers.  This is special to Jimmie because it is Jackie Robinson’s old team.  Rollins stated in Sports Illustrated that when he first wore the No. 42 it was a surreal feeling. Rollins grew up in Oakland and as a kid...

Baseball Replays

July 15, 2015
By

Are baseball replays too long?  I am in agreement with the idea that it is best to get the call right over the speed of the call; however, 4 minutes is way too long.  In some of the Reds recent games most of the replays were in excess of 3 minutes. Why not have...

Baseball All-Star Game

July 14, 2015
By

As you have seen in some of my past blogs, I really have no interest in All-Star games.  Baseball is no exception.  I do not agree with the premise that the winning league gets home field advantage in the World Series this fall.  The team with the best record in baseball should get the...

Soccer World Cup

July 13, 2015
By

I am certainly not an expert on soccer, but it was great to watch the United States Women dismantle Japan in the World Cup Final.  The USA team scored 4 goals in 16 minutes which is unheard of in professional soccer.  The 5-2 final is also a rarity in a final match. Carli Lloyd...

The Art of Pitching

July 10, 2015
By

When old pitching coaches used to talk about what a pitcher was doing wrong, they would use terms like “he’s flying open”, he’s not using his legs”, “his arm angle is too low”.  Today if you are a pitching coach, you use terms like bio-mechanics, kinesiology, high-speed cameras, and military lasers.  In other words,...

All-Star Voting

July 9, 2015
By

The All-Star Team has been announced.  Again, when you let it strictly up to the fans and allow computer voting, you will not get a true representation of who is or who is not an All-Star.  People simply vote for their own team and do not even make an effort to pick true All-Stars....

Cueto vs. Chapman

July 8, 2015
By

There has been a lot of chatter on talk radio as to who the Reds will trade before the deadline.  Cueto will demand the most money if the Reds decide to keep him.  He is a starter whose contract is up the end of this year, and he certainly is a proven winner.  Chapman...
