Golden Oldies

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

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...

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...

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
By

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...

Sport Bars

June 14, 2013

Have you wondered when sports bars got started? They started in the late 1970′s when Dennis Hannah (pro football player) opened a Legends Bar in Los Angeles.

So many schools these days have the problem of coaches who fail to share their athletes. This is not the case at Batesville. Both Eric Heppner and Aaron Garrett encourage their athletes to stay active. Both realize that athletes competing on teams are much more likely to stay in shape and do better in...

Baseball Families

By

It is too bad that we do not have the baseball traditions that once abounded in this area in the past. There have been three families that come to mind in the great tradition of the Tri-County League of years gone by. The first family was the Wissels. There were at least 5 of...
