  • Who are the real heroes?

    This July 4th was the 75th Anniversary of Lou Gehrig’s famous “Luckiest Man” speech given at Yankee Stadium two weeks after he retired from baseball.  
    The disease, known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, which is actually amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) had made it so he could no longer play. He was thanking the fans for their support through his career and with the disease which would soon take his life.
    The speech was replayed many times over last weekend and the designation of hero was placed on the late Yankee first baseman.  

  • Rays in Coach Pitch, Yankees in...

    The Yankees of the T-Ball League won two one-run games in the tournament to finish with a 17-0 record for the year including three wins in the tournament.  
    The Yankees defeated the Reds 18-8 in the first tournament game but then were challenged in a very severe way by the Orioles and then the Braves in the championship.  
    They defeated the Orioles 20-19 and the Braves 19-18 to round out their perfect season.
    The Giants finished second in the regular season followed by the Braves, the Orioles, Blue Jays, Pirates, Cardinals and the Reds.

  • Yankees open tournament with 18-...

    The Tee-Ball Tournament began Monday evening with the undefeated regular season champion Yankees facing the Reds.  
    The first inning was the turning point of the game as the Yankees struck for the maximum six runs in the top of the inning and held the Reds to one in the bottom half.  An exciting triple play pulled off by the Yankees’ Simon Jenkins was the big play of the game in the opening inning.  

  • Is NASCAR fading away?

    I am a pretty big NASCAR fan, not a spend-all-of-my-money-going-to-many-races kind of fan, but a fan never the less.  
    I enjoy going to a race if I do not have to walk miles from the parking spot and have a seat close but not too close to the track.  
    Too close is deafening and too far away makes it hard for a seeing impaired person to tell what number is what when the car races past at 200-plus mph.
