I read an interesting article in the Lawrenceburg Register about the Lawrenceburg Tigers and the North Decatur Chargers sharing practice time for the upcoming football season.  By following the rules set down by the IHSAA, if you call your practices a football “camp”, you can invite other teams to these practices.  The Tigers and...

Baseball Today

While reading Sports Illustrated, I noticed an article on William “the fridge” Perry.  Perry was a 300 lb. defensive player for Clemson and then the Chicago Bears.  He became famous with the Bears as a blocking back when the offense was inside the 5-yard line.  Seldom could the defense stop the running back when...

Pete Reiser, a long-time Brooklyn Dodger outfielder back in the 1950’s, is given credit for the warning tracks that are present in all big league diamonds.  When Pete played outfield, he was consistently running into the outfield wall.  This change in surface from grass to another surface alerts the outfieder to the upcoming wall.  Although he...

South Decatur Elementary Color Run @ South Decatur Jr - Sr High School
Sep 3 @ 9:00 am
South Decatur Elementary School has introduced a new fundraising program called My School Color Run. The My School Color Run program aims to go beyond traditional fundraising. Rather than sell goods, the program aims to engage the entire student body in a fitness initiative that aims to instill a life-long healthy way of living. On Sept. 3, at 9 a.m., the students, staff, and community of South Decatur Elementary School will walk, jog, and run their way toward a healthier life while raising funds for the PTO’s Playground Revitalization Project. The color run will be held at South Decatur Jr-Sr High School, and will be open to the public. This is an untimed fun run. Participants will pass through four color stations throughout the course and end with a massive color toss at the My Color Run Post-Race Party. Participants will be treated to refreshments, music, and fun following the run. Interested participants of all ages can register by visiting www.SouthDecaturMSCR.eventbrite.com, or by completing a paper registration form prior to the event. Registration is $25 for adults 13 and older, and $20 for kids 12 and under. A family of five gets a discount at $20 per person. Pre-registration is[...]
