Sports column: The pain and the joy of going the distance

Posted on November 29, 2012 |
By Karl Lindholm



 

Walking around the track at Middlebury College one day last summer, I ran into my friend Jon Cormier of Bristol, or more accurately, he ran by me. He was kind enough to stop and chat with me for a while, at my pace.

Turns out he was training for a race, and not a local fun run, but the “Vermont 50” at Mt. Ascutney in September. That’s a 50-mile race, up and down and around the mountain, with 9,000 feet of climbing over its route.

Lindholm Sports Column: Marco ... Scutaro: The Giants win the World Series

Posted on November 1, 2012 |
By Karl Lindholm



This past Sunday night Marco Scutaro knocked in the winning run for the San Francisco Giants in the deciding game of the World Series. Before that, he was the MVP of the National League Championship Series with a .500 batting average and a lot of big hits.

Why can’t the Red Sox get a player like that?

Oh yes, we had him for two years before banishing him to Colorado this past offseason.

Marco joined other diminutive second basemen, Bobby Richardson and Bill Mazeroski, as World Series heroes.

Men find refuge, solace in their cars

Karl Linholm Clippings dad's car.jpg

Yes, I have retired, but I am allowed to teach one course a year in retirement, so that’s what I do.

I teach my class in the late morning, and then I don’t go back to an office with a desk full of unmet responsibilities and an e-mail inbox of notes impossible to respond to adequately.

Instead, I go home and walk the dogs. Or I go to lunch with a friend.

Sports Column: Moving from the Panthers to the Baltimore Orioles

Karl Lindholm: From the Panthers to the Orioles

Middlebury College senior Mike Joseph loves baseball — and now he has a shot, a long shot perhaps, to embark on a career in baseball, having signed a contract in August with the Baltimore Orioles.

As you read this, Mike is in Sarasota, training and competing for a month (15 games) in the Florida Instructional League. He’s the first Panther to join a Major League organization since the early 1950s.

Sports column: Mike Trout - big catch, or one who got away?

Here he comes, just at the start, and he’s a beauty.

The Phee-nom.

I wish it were the old days, when baseball in August was just heating up, prelude to the pennant run and the Series, and not a concession to the colossus that is football these days. 

What a great baseball season in the Majors we have, this summer.

Sure, the Red Sox are down — how can they not be, with all those injuries: 26 players on the “disabled list” this summer, the most of any team in the last 25 years. Now, Middlebrooks.

GOSHEN — “If there ever was a state made for Nordic skiing, it’s this one.”

That’s the view of Cam MacKugler, coach of Frost Mountain Nordic (FMN), and his friends in this local organization, which has the goals of developing “a community of skiing enthusiasts” and providing the coaching and tutelage necessary to help athletes reach the highest levels of competition.

Black kids in the U.S. don’t play baseball anymore.

As a generalization, that’s true. Participation by African-Americans in baseball has declined precipitously at all levels in the last two decades or so.

In 1975, 27 percent of all major leaguers were African-American. Now that number is 8 percent. The Red Sox have one African-American on their 25 man roster, Carl Crawford.

Boys, men, golf and war

Now that no one is publishing books, I have decided to write them. My timing is impeccable, as usual.

My golf book is pretty much done. Now I have to figure out what to do with it.

It’s about the Poland Spring Caddy Camp and the eight summers I spent there from age 13 to 20, a formative time indeed.

Caddy Camp — cute name but not a cute place. We drew a firm distinction between our camp and the fun camps, which surrounded us in central Maine. Ours was a residential work camp, 10 weeks from mid-June to late August (but we had some fun too).

Local athlete, national champ: Kate Livesay

Katy Perine was a surprise.

When her parents, Carolyn and Ken, went to Porter Hospital for the birth of their third child, they discovered only then that Carolyn would indeed deliver their third — and fourth. Their doctor and friend, Chip Malcolm, examined an X-ray and said, “Looks like two!”

Kathryn was born 15 minutes after her sister, Kristi. That was July 19, 1980.
