My View: "Moneyball" and the place of stats in baseball

June 21, 2011

Finally America gets what it has been pining for: a movie about baseball statistics.

Heh.

“Moneyball”, Michael Lewis’  sports book that to people under 35 is a seminal reading the same way “Ball Four” by Jim Bouton  or

“The Boys of Summer” by Roger Kahn were to previous baseball-loving generations, comes to big screen in late September — just as baseball will be winding down its regular season and in time for Joe Buck to sneer at it on a Fox baseball broadcast.

Rider ACME baseball team keeps rolling, hands Wapak first loss

June 17, 2011

ST. MARYS – It was total domination Friday evening for the St. Marys ACME baseball team against  previously unbeaten Wapakoneta.

St. Marys got the runs going in the third inning and defeated Wapakoneta 10-0 in five innings at K.C. Geiger Park.

“This season we have been very successful in executing in situations,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “Sometimes it has been with a hit, sometimes by making the pitcher work or by getting a couple bunts down and forcing some errors.”

St. Marys Memorial upgrades weight room equipment

June 17, 2011

New weight room equipment was installed at Memorial High School on June 8 and the early feedback from the students has been positive.

“Kids can be pretty tough on equipment so we made sure we got heavy-duty stuff that will hold up,” St. Marys Athletic Director Joe Bline said.

The Equipment Guys, a company out of  Urbancrest, Ohio, supplied the equipment.

The  cost of the weight room equipment was originally $60,000, but the three lowest bids for the equipment all came in over $10,000 below that estimate in March.
