Taken for Granted

June 28, 2013

If you grew up in sports, there are a lot of things you believe everyone knows. Take for instance–how do they assign an umpire for a baseball game?–which I just assumed everyone knew until someone asked me if plate umpires got paid more than base umpires. Umpires in the major leagues are paid on...

IU Baseball

June 27, 2013

It was good to see a Big Ten team make the CWS. The College World Series has been dominated by warm-weather colleges for years. It has been since 1984 that any Big Ten team made the “Big Show” in Omaha. That team was Michigan, and it featured Barry Larkin and Hal Morris–both who played...

The Fix

June 26, 2013

Most old timers remember the Black Sox Scandal (when the Chicago White Sox threw the World Series in baseball), and some of the point-shaving incidents in college basketball that crop up every once in a while. What you hear about every year is who really controls certain pro sport playoff outcomes. I read that...

Golden Oldies

June 25, 2013

Every once in a while I like to play my old records that go back to the 1950′s. Oh, what a kinder, slower time those 50′s were. Baseball was played every day of the week except for Monday, and every big day–like Memorial Day–you could count on a doubleheader. Players stayed with their teams...

Roy Hibbert

June 24, 2013

Roy Hibbert was a big reason the Indiana Pacers did as well as they did in this year’s playoffs. With a little better effort in the 7th game with the Miami Heat, the Pacers might be the talk of Pro Basketball. Roy is the 7’2″ and 280 lb. center for the Pacers. The 27-year...

Open Mouth Insert Foot

June 20, 2013

I am sure by now you have heard the comments put out by Ohio State President Gee. His remarks about the priests at Notre Dame being angels on weekends but devils during the week would have been bad enough, but then he made some remarks about certain southern schools going to do something but...

The Forgotten Ones

June 19, 2013

When a married man becomes a head coach in any sport, but basketball and football in particular, that leaves his wife a widow for several months. In some cases, it becomes almost a year-round sentence. With the demands in time placed on these coaches today with off-season training and coaching it takes a real...

Baseball Numbering

June 18, 2013

Baseball is unique in that each position in the scorebook is a number, not letter or words. One is the pitcher, 2 is the catcher, 3 is the first baseman, 4 is the second baseman, 5 is third base, 6 is the shortstop, 7 is the left fielder, 8 is the center fielder, and...

Score Keeping

June 17, 2013

Have you ever been the score bookkeeper at any sporting event? All sports have unique things that only the true sport fan understands or even wants to understand. I have kept track, baseball, and basketball books. To the average Joe, you are just writing down the scores as they happen. However, what you are...
