Family Fun

July 8, 2013

We recently attended a Cincinnati Reds Baseball Game. It is not unusual for two tickets to run more than $100. I know that the Reds have ticket plans that give discounts to families on certain days or for certain games. For example, Monday nights are usually cheaper than any weekend game, but still for...

U.S. Open Golf

How about the U.S. Open Golf Tourney a few weeks back? When is the last time it looked like your game on a course around here? How long has it been since a pro tourney was won with a “+” golf score? I know people like to watch the world’s best shoot -20 in...

Fourth of July

Where is Ernie Banks? When Ernie played for the Cubs, they would ask him if he liked playing a double-header on the 4th; and his answer always was “it is such a nice day, let’s play 3.” Today you not only will not see a double-header, but you may not see every team even...

Old Timers

At the banquet preceding the Midwest Meet of Champions in Ft. Wayne that I talked about yesterday, they honored coaches from Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan who have coached 50 or more years. Ohio had 2 and Indiana had 6. I happened to be one of them. The others included Bill Welch (Rose Hulman), Jim...

Midwest Meet of Champions

July 2, 2013

I think I wrote about going to the MMC in Ft. Wayne a few weeks back. This is an amazing track meet and only one of two such meets left in the United States. The other I believe is the Keebler Championship Meet. All the others have succumbed to financial woes. The Neeley Twins...

Women Who Coach

July 1, 2013
By

A couple of weeks ago I wrote an article on the time-consuming job of men coaching in high school. Today I am writing about the other side of the coin–women coaching in high school. Here it is the husband who has to take over the day-to-day running of the household. This is not overwhelming...

Taken for Granted

June 28, 2013
By

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

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
By

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

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...
