June 18, 2015
By

Yesterday I wrote about a potential Indiana All-Star in Josh Speidel, and today my blog is about another Indiana All-Star who is having a tough year.  All of you are familiar with the ACL injury that Bryan Hoeing suffered in basketball early in the season.  Fortunately, he was able to start playing baseball after...

By

Josh Speidel of Columbus North was well on his way to being an Indiana All-Star basketball player this year.  On February 1, on a snowy night, he was involved in an automobile accident near Indianapolis.  Even though the crash did not look very menacing, Josh suffered a severe head injury.  He would spend the...

Mighty Mite

Joe Altuve is listed as a 5’6″ infielder in the Astros press guide.  Most people feel he is closer to 5’2″.  This, however, does not keep him from being one of the top players in the American League.  He normally plays second base for Houston and has been an All-Star for at least 2...

Pete Rose

June 12, 2015
By

You have heard that the new baseball commissioner is going to re-visit the Pete Rose case and see if there is any chance he might be re-instated.  If it is left up to some of the players who played with him on the Big Red Machine, he doesn’t have a chance.  I don’t understand...

Coaching Education

June 11, 2015
By

Someone has decided that in order to coach in Indiana the people involved must go back to school.  I have no problem with coaches having to be up-to-date on CPR, other life-saving skills, and concussions.  But some of the legislators in Indiana have convinced the IHSAA that in order to remain a coach you will...

Juan Pablo Montoya

June 10, 2015
By

This year the Indianapolis 500 was won by Juan Pablo Montoya.  It is quite unusual for someone to come from NASCAR and be able to go to an Indy car and be successful.  Montoya, of course, was an Indy driver before he went to NASCAR so he is not entirely new in this form of...

Speed and Scoring

June 9, 2015
By

Have you seen the NCAA’s plan to improve scoring in basketball next year?  They have reduced the shot clock from 35 seconds to 30 seconds; increased the 3-foot circle under the basket to 4 feet; and reduced the number of time outs available to the coach in a game.  I think these will help...

New Transfer Rule

June 8, 2015
By

The IHSAA is finalizing a new transfer rule that will eliminate the practice of allowing athletes (especially basketball players)  to go to a new school just because they have connections with a coach or player from that school.  This is known as the “no past link” rule.  If they still choose to transfer, they...
