Mercy Rule

October 29, 2013
By

By now everyone has probably heard about the high school football game in Texas that wound up 91-0.  Some parent on the losing team has brought some type of legal action against the coach for “bullying”.  I have not read the legal papers, of course, so the exact nature of the action is speculation on my...

Star or Bum?

October 28, 2013
By

Just recently I noticed a blurb on the Cincinnati Sports page that the Reds are thinking about trading Brandon Phillips.  Of course, at this time of the year, everything is pure speculation.  When you take a nose dive in September and your team was supposed to be the “class” of your division, heads must...

More on the Reds

October 25, 2013
By

NOTE:  This article was written prior to the announcement of Bryan Price as manager of the Reds. There has been a lot of speculation on who the next Reds’ manager will be.  I did not think they would stay with anybody from Dusty’s staff.  However, the pitching coach (Price) is now being mentioned.  There was...

Darrick Cox

With the start of winter sports, a familiar face will be on the scene but in a new role.  Darrick Cox has taken over the girls basketball program at BHS.  Darrick was a sports star at BHS in the late 90’s.  He also coached boys basketball and track at BHS.  He takes over a girls...

The Misfit

October 23, 2013
By

My wife and I were watching a new sitcom on TV the other day called “Back in the Game”.  It dealt with those kids who are always chosen last in any athletic event.  In fact, these kids weren’t even chosen to be on a Little League Team.  If you have ever coached at any...

Fund Raising

October 22, 2013
By

Anybody who has ever coached or taught for any length of time has been involved with some type of fund raiser.  I have already talked about several of the ones that Batesville and other area schools use.  On vacation to visit the grandchildren in Iowa we ran into quite an unusual one.  This particular fund...

Fall Foliage

October 21, 2013
By

This is one of my favorite times of the year.  Whenever you have a rainy summer, the fall leaf color is beautiful.  In my days of coaching cross country I remember the trips to places like Rising Sun, Union County, and Columbus where we were able, not only to see the changing leaves on...

Football Friday

October 18, 2013
By

Believe it or not, tonight is the last regular season football game  for area high schools.  Next week starts the playoff system which this year contains 6 divisions.  The super schools are now classified as 6A and it goes down from there to 1A.  Football is such a numbers game that the 5A class...

Baseball Bats

October 17, 2013
By

The other day David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox showed up for batting practice with a metal bat.  Of course, these are banned in major league baseball, but he wanted to put on a show for the fans during batting practice.  He supposedly hit several balls completely out of Fenway Park–even some over...

Dusty Baker

October 16, 2013
By

I  was out of town when Dusty’s tenure in Cincinnati came to an end.  After their loss to Pittsburgh, I am sure his dismissal came as no surprise to most baseball fans.  You can’t fire the multi-millionaires who do not perform up to their potential, so the scapegoat is always the manager first.  I...
