By

I have learned through the years that you don’t ask certain questions after a team loses unless you are prepared for what might come out of their mouth.  I still remember a young radio partner of mine asking to do the post-game interview after a tough Batesville basketball loss.  His first statement was “I...

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...
