  • ‘Let’s play two’ just for fun

    Ernie Banks was already a mega-star when I started watching baseball as a kid in the mid-1960s.

    The Cubs, or any other team for that matter, weren’t on TV 150 times a year, so you watched when you could. You learned to read the box scores, pay attention to “The Game of the Week” and collect baseball cards.

    Lots of baseball cards.

    And I had a bunch of the Chicago Cubs’ first baseman.

    All it took was one look.

    Heckenburg found Jonathan Henry behind the Anderson defense for a layup. Fouled on the play, Henry converted the three-point play that powered the North Oldham to a 73-71 win over the host Bearcats in an Eighth Region showdown last Tuesday.
