  • Whistles, genetics, trophies, oh my!

    We start the evening and end the evening with a whistle. It’s a fascinating thing how so many of us love the sound of the athletic whistle, the clear-high-pitched, a train’s-a-coming blast of it.

  • Harriers begin

    Yellow Springs High School and McKinney School cross country, a good sport for fitness, fun and the competition of friendly rivalries, will begin its fall season on Monday, Aug. 4.

  • Psychic or not, come to t-ball

    I ran into a couple of t-ball players Saturday at Docton’s Animal Clinic in Xenia, when I was picking up medicine for our new, 8-week-old puppy, Cody. Olivia Ling, 4, marched in the front door with her fabulous sister Eliana, 6, their mom Audrey, and their guinea pig in a box.

  • Pirates win Minor League, tourney

    The Pirates maintained their season-long lead during the final week of play to win the Minor League regular season championship with a 13–1 record.

  • Meet our promising future at t-ball

    A couple of years back, Steffi Cooper, 8, was distressed about our races to the outfield and back at the beginning and ending of the evening. “Someone always loses,” she said.

  • Pirates lead Minor League

    The Indians took a pair of games from the Yankees on Monday, July 14, to overtake the Yankees and move into second place behind the Pirates to start off the final two weeks of the 2008 season.

  • Perry League aging well at 38!

    We had a ton of children last Friday. I was surprised. I had expected turnout to be thin because of the 4th of July layover — we didn’t have t-ball Friday night, July 4, so there was a two-week break between t-ball nights, nor our usual one.
