Snacks

April 10, 2013
By

When did the idea you had to have snacks for practice get started? I know I used it in cross country when we had practice at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning. I figured if I made the kids get up and work that early on their day off, it was up to me to...

Ground Rules

April 10, 2013
By

Have you ever wondered why umpires meet with the managers at home plate before a ball game? It is to exchange line-up cards, but it is also to go over the ground rules of each ball park. A park like Cincinnati’s is usually easy. There are no unusual nooks and crannies in this park...

Student Athletes

April 9, 2013
By

When Colt Ryan graduates in May, he will have completed his journey through Evansville in four years. Yes, I said four year–not five or six as it takes for many athletes to complete this journey.

April 4, 2013
By

If you haven’t heard yet, the IHSAA has introduced a new rule that will affect schools who win too much. Yes, that is what I said–schools that win too much! If you win two consecutive state championships in a sport, you will have to move up a class unless you are already in the...

Picking a Team

April 3, 2013
By

What kind of players would you choose if you could pick a basketball team? I am sure it probably entered your mind at one time or another. In high school you take what the community gives you, of course, but it is nice to dream. In today’s game of three-point baskets and tall, quick...

Strategy

Opening Day

April 1, 2013
By

Only in Cincinnati is there the temptation to make Opening Day a holiday. The parade is special as are all the other things that make this such an institution for Cincinnati. When can you take the day off from work and wind up going to the game with your boss? I remember teachers at...

Aroldis Chapman

March 29, 2013
By

The debate on Aroldis Chapman is supposed to be settled, but I wonder how long it will be before they start the debate again on where he will fit in best. When you are 25-years old and can throw over 100 mph, it is always going to be a debate on where he will...
