The Art of Pitching

July 10, 2015
By

When old pitching coaches used to talk about what a pitcher was doing wrong, they would use terms like “he’s flying open”, he’s not using his legs”, “his arm angle is too low”.  Today if you are a pitching coach, you use terms like bio-mechanics, kinesiology, high-speed cameras, and military lasers.  In other words,...

All-Star Voting

July 9, 2015
By

The All-Star Team has been announced.  Again, when you let it strictly up to the fans and allow computer voting, you will not get a true representation of who is or who is not an All-Star.  People simply vote for their own team and do not even make an effort to pick true All-Stars....

Cueto vs. Chapman

July 8, 2015
By

There has been a lot of chatter on talk radio as to who the Reds will trade before the deadline.  Cueto will demand the most money if the Reds decide to keep him.  He is a starter whose contract is up the end of this year, and he certainly is a proven winner.  Chapman...

Trevor Bauer is a pitcher for the Cleveland Indians.  In a recent article I read in Sports Illustrated, Bauer explained his long toss theory for keeping his arm strong and preventing the injuries that so many pitchers today face.  Three to five times a week, instead of throwing on the sidelines which so many...

Mud Bowl

July 2, 2015
By

I recently read in the Lawrenceburg paper that Lawrenceburg High School is putting a synthetic surface on their football field.  For the past several years the “Bowl”, as it is known in Lawrenceburg, has been subject to poor drainage and it is almost an impossibility to keep grass growing on the field.  No one...

Roger Goodell

July 1, 2015
By

Roger Goodell’s name has certainly appeared too often in the media this year.  If you do not know, he is the commissioner of the NFL.  He is really the owner’s puppet, not a leader.  Most of his decisions seem to favor what the owners want and not what is best for the sport. Domestic...

Area Softball and Baseball

June 30, 2015
By

Congratulations to the area schools who made a great run in the softball and baseball state tournaments this year.  Milan and Franklin County girls both made it to the semi-state in softball.  Ironically, both schools lost 1-0.  I know in the case of Franklin County they were a very young team and should be...

Carmel High School has won a lot of state championships, but boys’ track has not been one of them.  Ken Browner led the Greyhounds to their 2nd state championship this year.  Ken and I are both members of the state track and cross country association board.  Carmel was not able to depend on winning...

What do you do if you are a 3-time state champ as a freshman?  You go out and do the same thing again as a sophomore and lead your team to a state championship.  Lynna Irby of Pike High School in Indianapolis did just this.  When you reach the state level, an athlete of...
