Cooperation

June 13, 2013
By

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

June 12, 2013
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...

Who Helped Who?

June 10, 2013
By

I have two friends who went to Ball Sate at the same time. I will not use their names since I don’t want to embarrass them. Friend A said he did all the work to get Friend B through school. Of course, Friend B said the same about his buddy. As I said, I...

Old Fogy Golf

June 4, 2013
By

I probably will get a lot of grief for this title, but this what a lot of my friends call their weekly golf excursions. Batesville has a large group that either travels to North Branch on Mondays or some other local course and plays a good round of golf. After golf I think they...

Co-Ed Softball

June 3, 2013
By

I noticed more and more communities are starting co-ed softball leagues. I like this idea. With softball entrenched in the high school sport’s scene, more women feel proficient in it and are quite capable of handling themselves in this environment.
