MINSTER — A bases-loaded squeeze play gone awry turned out to be a winning play for the Minster baseball team.
Fort Recovery couldn’t execute a rundown between home plate and third base after Minster’s runners took off and a pitch went wide beyond what hitter Max Huber could bunt. The Indians threw the ball down the line — where the covering shorstop was sprinting to get the bag — to allow Brandon Hoying to cross home plate for the 1-0 win in the bottom of the eighth inning at Hanover Street Park on Tuesday evening.

ST. MARYS — St. Marys Memorial High School graduate Bob Gill says the guiding principle he brings to building million dollar businesses is the idea that who a company hires matters.
While that person-to-person attitude may be a reflection of his small town Ohio upbringing, Gill said companies should seek out the best for every position. Gill said he tells companies great hiring permeates the company, and makes all standards higher. That encourages people to work harder.
