Karl Lindholm: All that dough for a baseball class?

Posted on April 8, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I was sitting in Sama’s, near the rear, with my back to the door, drinking coffee and grading papers, hard-copy, the old-fashioned way.

My neighbor entered, sat down opposite me, and asked me what I was doing.

“Reading student papers. I’m teaching a course this spring,” I explained. “I get to teach one a year in retirement.”

“So,” my neighbor asked, “what course?”

“A baseball class. It’s called, “Segregation in America: Baseball’s Negro Leagues.”

TUCSON, Ariz. — The Middlebury College baseball team got off to an 0-6 start in its spring break trip to Tucson, Ariz., and will hope to bounce back this weekend, still in Tucson, in a three-game set vs. NESCAC West foe Williams.

Lindholm: Beautiful day — Let's play two!

When Ernie Banks was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1977, he began his acceptance speech with his customary invocation: “We’ve got the setting. Sunshine. Fresh air. We’ve got the team behind us. So let’s play two!”

Ernie Banks died on Jan. 23, and the flag of every Cubs fan flew at half-mast on that day. He was officially “Mr. Cub,” having played only for the Cubs for all his 19 years in the majors. It is safe to say there has not been a more beloved athlete by fans in any sport than Ernie Banks was to Chicagoans.

Karl Lindholm: Vermont's Schoolmaster is in the Hall of Fame

I was skeptical.

When I first heard that Middlebury College was considering an Athletic Hall of Fame, I had reservations.

A hall of fame can be a can of worms, producing as much discord as concord, as much dismay at who’s not included as celebration of who gets in.

Halls of fame are by their very nature exclusive. We preach in schools the joy of competition and the benefits of participation, but we know the most highly accomplished are not always the most highly dedicated.

Andy Kirkaldy: On Pats, field hockey & more

In honor of what still may still lurk from Thanksgiving in our refrigerators, some leftover sports thoughts:

•  It remains a better question to ask how have the New England Patriots managed to have winning seasons every year since 2004, not why have they not won another Super Bowl. The Patriots have been the best team overall in the NFL in that time frame despite being upset in two Super Bowls.

Karl Lindholm: Whither baseball: Just too slow?

I know, it’s football season and here we are basking in the glow of the Middlebury Tigers championship, and excellent seasons from the Middlebury College team and the Otters down the road at Otter Valley Union High.

Next week, we will cook a bird and overeat and collapse, many of us, in front of the TV to watch football. But as the temperature drops and winter beckons, I have baseball, the summer game, on my mind.

Clippings: Pro baseball player strikes it rich

By John Flowers



News item: Miami Marlins outfielder Giancarlo Stanton has signed a contract extension that will pay him $325 million over the next 13 years.

To play baseball for around eight months each year.

I say eight months because the Marlins have as much chance of making the playoffs next year as I have of playing center in the National Basketball Association. And I’m 52 years old and 5 feet, 6 inches tall on a good day.

Lake Monsters 'draft' Bristol baseball player

BRISTOL — The Vermont Lake Monsters minor league baseball team in Burlington looked in their own backyard to fill an open roster spot by signing a Bristol native to a one-day contract.

The Class-A affiliate of the Oakland Athletics signed catcher Ethan Fritz, who became a free agent after a strong season this spring with the Bristol Eagles.

Not bad for a kid who’s just 11.

Cheated and mistreated, but never defeated — they had will and skill, hustle and muscle, fire and desire, intestinal fortitude and the right attitude.

That’s how Larry Lester describes the players of baseball’s Negro leagues.
