  • COLUMN: 260 minutes of Can-You-Top-This?

    Over 25 years of writing and about 20 more of general fandom, I have been to a whole shaboodle of really good games. I have witnessed countless great contests. A whole bunch of “heckuva” games.

    I have been to quite a few epics and run of the mill classics.

    And last Thursday, I attended the Eighth Region tournament championship. Like nearly everyone who made the trip to Carroll County High School, I expected to see a good game, maybe even a routine thriller or nail-biter.

  • COLUMN: Grateful to be back in my new Kentucky home

    Crazy. That’s what most people thought I was when I accepted this job four years ago last month.

    “You’re going to leave beach life in North Carolina to move to Kentucky?” they asked. “You’re an idiot.”

    Perhaps, but having led a fairly nomadic life while plying my craft, I was confident that I’d enjoy Lawrenceburg as much as any of my stops along the road.

    I’ve reheated this particular skillet of hash to let you know that not only don’t I regret moving here, I’m mighty glad I did.

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: 'Fired up' Yankees dispatch Indians, move to semis

    The Yankees said they were fired up, and they proved it.

    The Yankees plated six runs in the bottom half of the second inning, including three on an error-filled inside-the-park home run from Dillon Harper, to take a 9-2 lead on the Indians, and never looked back.

    “We were more fired up today,” Harper said. “We’re ready to win a championship, but the main priority is to play my best and have fun.”

  • LITTLE LEAGUE: Mets offense awakens, plates 12 runs in win

    Two days after being no-hit by the Red Sox, the Mets’ bats exploded for 12 runs, scoring at least one run in each inning but one.

    The two-day break was all the Mets needed to regroup and gain their confidence at the plate. After a scoreless opening frame, the Mets used timely hitting and fielding to beat the Cubs 12-2 on Saturday at Davenport Field.
