Tom's Take on Sports

 


Radio gets results... from two Vincennes baseball stars

     It was one of those situations that you have to love as a person following the professional arcs of two Vincennes professional baseball players.  I was traveling home from Louisville last Sunday, after spending the weekend with my kids.  One one side of the dial was my kids' hometown team, the Louisville Bats-- featuring starting catcher Nevin Ashley.  Ashley was a player I had the privilege of covering in the early 2000's when he was at North Knox High School.  On the other side of the dial, my beloved Cincinnati Reds were playing the Pittsburgh Pirates-- featuring Vincennes native, and starting shortstop, Clint Barmes.
      I couldn't help but thinking... I must be the only person in the world to have that privilege of listening to these two great Knox county athletes playing-- at the same time-- on my radio.  One playing for the Louisville Bats in northeast Pennsylvania-- and winning... and one playing away from his Pennsylvania home, at Cincinnati's Great American Ball Park.   My beloved Reds won that one, by the way...
      How did I keep up with both those great players-- and their teams-- as part of my 2 hour, 40 minute trip home?  Radio.  And a promotional plug-- you can hear the present players from Vincennes, North Knox, and other places on your Original Company radio stations.  And just in case you missed it... football season starts August 23rd....

                                                    That's my take... I'm Tom Lee.
