  • Breds end baseball season with loss in region championship

    “When you come right down to it, you have to get hits,” bemoaned Coach Mac Whitaker. “Brossart’s key guys got hits and ours didn’t.”  
    That about summed up the feelings for the Hall of Fame coach the day after the Breds dropped a controversial loss to the Mustangs of Bishop Brossart in the championship game of the 10th Region.

  • A perfect season

    The recent events on the baseball field bring to mind one particular saying or remark that my dad said frequently.  I will tell you what it was later on in the article.
    The conclusion of the Harrison County versus Bishop Brossart game was less than desirable for the Harrison County fans who had hopes of returning after a one-year absence to the state finals.  
    I was not in attendance but have had several first-hand accounts of what happened including talking with the main man, Mac Whitaker.

    Coppage was a key ingredient in the just-completed 23-12-1 season for the Fillies.  
    Coppage led the Fillies in home runs with 16, which is just three short of the state record of 19 while batting .549. She had 15 doubles, 62 base hits and 58 runs batted in.  

  • A day of washing

    It was a good day for a baptism, a warm Wednesday evening about two years ago.
    Her name was Minnie and she lived by a lake. She had invited her Methodist pastor and all her friends to come to her baptism, right there at the lake where she lived.
    She joked that she had a pile of rocks at the water’s edge to throw at the alligators in case they got too curious or hungry.
    Thankfully, she didn’t need them.
