June 5, 2013
By

This fall at least two of the more successful football programs in the area will have new coaches. Milan has just named Ed Wagner as their new coach. Ed is coming from Bedford North Lawrence where he has been a teacher and coach for the past 7 years. East Central, earlier this year, named...

Old Fogy Golf

June 4, 2013
By

I probably will get a lot of grief for this title, but this what a lot of my friends call their weekly golf excursions. Batesville has a large group that either travels to North Branch on Mondays or some other local course and plays a good round of golf. After golf I think they...

Co-Ed Softball

June 3, 2013
By

I noticed more and more communities are starting co-ed softball leagues. I like this idea. With softball entrenched in the high school sport’s scene, more women feel proficient in it and are quite capable of handling themselves in this environment. The games seem to be quite a bit of fun for all those playing,...

Summer Time

May 31, 2013
By

Today we officially start summer in Batesville. School is out, so we will see the bicycles slowly moving down the streets and sidewalks in town. I find it quite interesting to watch the kids as summer begins, progresses, and then winds down. Those first couple of weeks, those too young to have jobs are...

Ugly Side

May 30, 2013
By

Most people probably didn’t see in the news that Dick Trickle killed himself the other day. Dick was a mainstay on the NASCAR circuit for quite a few years. Dick was a prankster and always seemed to be enjoying himself whenever people saw him in public. When his career slowed down and he wasn’t...

One-Time Wonders

By

This is about the time of a baseball season that some of those flashy rookies start hitting the skids. They start to face the pitchers or hitters for the second or third time around and their weaknesses are exposed. One of those wonders was Mark “The Bird” Fidrych of the Detroit Tigers. He did...

Summer Vacation

May 28, 2013
By

If they are not already off for the summer, most students will be in the next few days. Today, for the older ones, that means a summer job interrupted by many workouts for those playing sports. For the younger ones, it probably means day care or summer camps or babysitters. In the olden days,...

More Memories

May 26, 2013
By

The other day my wife found a picture of the 1982 Conference and County track championship team picture in our basement. It brought back a lot of memories. This boys team followed a 1981 group that might have been one of the top squads I ever coached at BHS. I was very surprised when...

Cincinnati Reds

May 24, 2013
By

The Reds have to be the most fan-friendly organization in baseball. The package deals they offer in groups of tickets is quite attainable for most families. One of these deals is that if one adult buys a full price ticket, several more tickets are available at reduced prices. This is quite different than the...

Too Much Sport

May 23, 2013
By

A couple of days ago, I talked about being a kid and enjoying the month of May. Today kids often do not have the chance to do this. If they are out for a spring sport, I can bet at least one coach is on their back about a fall or winter sport. The...
