In 1965 a relatively unknown high school sprinter from Brebeuf High School in Indianapolis set the state 100-yard dash record.  He ran it that day in 9.5 seconds which astounded everyone at the state meet including his coach.  Since we no longer run races in yards, it still stands as a state record.  That...

Victory Field

May 19, 2016
By

When the Indianapolis Indians opened their baseball season this spring, it was the 20th year for the new downtown Victory Field.  Victory Field has the reputation of being one of the most fan-friendly ball parks in minor league baseball.  A lot of people enjoy sitting beyond the outfield wall on the grass with their...

Tiger Woods

May 18, 2016
By

It is hard to pick up a newspaper or magazine without seeing some article debating when or if Tiger Woods will ever get back to playing competitive golf.  I am sure there are several factors that have lead to some of his demise. First of all, like many star athletes, his faithfulness to his...

Dale Earnhardt, Jr.

May 17, 2016
By

While reading Sports Illustrated, I saw a blurb stating that Dale Earnhardt, Jr., is going to donate his brain to medical research when he passes away.  He wants it to be used for the study of the effects of brain concussions on human health.  Most of you probably remember that Dale’s dad passed away...

How Technical Are Sports Going To Get?

May 16, 2016
By

While listening to a baseball game the other night, I could not believe the statistics they were quoting.  Most teams now have charts, graphs, and statistics on every ball a major league player hits.  They know how hard it was hit.  They know which direction it went.  They know how many times a player...

Do I Encourage or Do I Push?

May 13, 2016
By

The other night I was watching a commercial on TV.  A young girl dressed in her softball uniform was just walking on to the ball diamond.  Oh, how this brings back memories for any of us who ever played the sport of baseball or softball.  I know young boys usually envision that they are...

Where Are The Young People?

May 12, 2016
By

I recently attended the State Board for Track & Field held in Indianapolis.  There were 22 coaches from throughout the state who attended.  Six of the 22, including myself, are retired from active coaching.  Another 10 of these coaches are over 50 years old.  As you can see, there are not a lot of...

Derby Wrap-Up

May 11, 2016
By

Normally at the Kentucky Derby you get the exception rather than the rule.  This has not been the case for the past 3 derbys.   This year the top 4 horses were the actual top 4 picks by the bettors when the race started.  Nyquist, at 2-1 odds was the winner.  This undefeated 3-year...

Substitution

May 10, 2016
By

No one questions a football or basketball coach putting substitutes into a game.  It is a regular practice.  Think what these games would be like if you had to designate before the game only an exact number of players you were going to use–like 11 in football or 5 in basketball.  That is the...

Undue Influence

May 9, 2016
By

The IHSAA is continuing to cut down on major high school sports programs in Indiana from recruiting.  What does this mean to the average person who follows high school sports?  Off-season coaches (mainly in basketball) who coach the junior high age level athlete in AAU or similar leagues cannot influence where these athletes attend...
