Reds Caravan Revisited

February 3, 2014
By

As usual, it was a lot of fun to MC the Reds Caravan when they were in Batesville.  I was really impressed with Brayan Pena, the new catcher for the Reds.  The young man is a native of Cuba and a countryman of Reds relief pitcher, Chapman.  The soft-spoken catcher was friendly and was a...

Track Clinic

January 31, 2014
By

If you are reading this article today, I am attending the annual Indiana State Track and Field Clinic.  Each year, weather permitting, almost 800 coaches throughout the state convene in Indianapolis for this annual event.  It is always nice to think about warmer weather and track meets in the middle of winter.  For the...

Sideline Interviews

January 30, 2014
By

By now all of you have seen the interview conducted by Erin Andrews after the Seattle/San Francisco ball game.  Any time you do an interview after a hotly contested pro game, you have to be careful what questions you ask a player.  Erin innocently wanted to know the Seattle defensive back’s description of his...

Old High School Gym

January 29, 2014
By

My wife and I were watching an old Cagney & Lacey the other night, and a scene in that show took place in a police bathroom.  There was mold all over the walls.  The first thing I thought of was the shower room at the old gym.  I can’t even imagine what the State...

Girl/Boy Basketball Doubleheaders

January 28, 2014
By

It is time for schools to schedule boys and girls varsity basketball games on the same night.  This format will make it much easier to satisfy Title IX and make sure gyms do not sit open on weekend nights.  This is happening now to satisfy the Title IX requirement for equal girl and boy...

More County Tourney Thoughts

January 27, 2014
By

On Friday I listed some of my thoughts on the reduced attendance at the Ripley County Tourney games.  Another thought on why the attendance is lower today could possibly be the number of games involved and the fact there are two tournaments in one–a boys tourney and a girls tourney.  This causes people to...

County Tourney Revisited

January 24, 2014
By

The just completed Ripley County Tournament was a success when you compare it to other tournaments being held in the state of Indiana.  However, it is no where near the event it used to be.  In its heyday you had to know somebody or compete in a lottery just to get tickets to attend. ...

Hope Springs Eternal

January 23, 2014
By

If you are one of those who have a ticket to the Reds’ Caravan occurring today, you can begin to speculate on the success of the Reds this year.  With a new manager at the helm, former pitching coach Price, the Reds probably will look similar to last year.  Let’s hope that he will...

Backstop

January 21, 2014
By

I wonder how many things I used as a backstop for my baseball throwing sessions as a kid.  I never had one of those throw-back devices, so all of my backstops were home made.  The most practical one was a stack of straw or hay bales lines up along the barn wall.  They didn’t damage...
