Nats' phenom: Best young pitcher ever?

Posted on August 5, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



Twenty-two-year-old Washington Nationals pitcher Stephen Strasburg is a genuine phenom, whose arrival in baseball has come this summer with unmatched ballyhoo.

His highly anticipated first game this year in the majors on June 8 at Nationals Stadium was a debut beyond expectation: Strasburg struck out 14 batters in seven innings before a sell-out crowd of 40,315, leading the Nats to a 5-2 win over the Pirates.

The spirit and meaning of sports

Posted on July 8, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



Editor’s note: This spring Karl Lindholm was privileged to speak to Middlebury College athletes just prior to their graduation. Here are those remarks excerpted.

My favorite team is not the Red Sox or the Celtics — my favorite team is the Panthers of Middlebury College, or the Tigers of Middlebury Union High School.

Perfect, but not perfect: Pair of calls are blown

Posted on June 10, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



Last Wednesday night we were assembled in front of the tube watching the end of the Red Sox game, as we do most nights. It’s an after-dinner nocturnal ritual.

The Sox announcers informed us that Armando Galarraga of the Tigers was taking a perfect game into the ninth inning against the Cleveland Indians. Twenty-four Indians’ hitters had come up and all 24 had been set down. So we changed the channel to see if the young Tiger pitcher could close it out.

Good sports. Exciting.

Softball: Baseball for the girls

Posted on May 13, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



My daughter Annie, 12, has managed to resist the siren song of lacrosse in Middlebury and is playing seventh-grade softball this spring, under the tutelage of Brett Ringey, son of Mike — the patriarch of the Cornwall Ringeys, the first family of Addison County baseball (and now softball).

Mike has handed Annie the “tools of ignorance,” so now she is ensconced behind the plate as catcher. Her team, the Middlebury Union Middle School Tigers, have split their first two games, winning one and losing one.

'A gentle trinitarian mysticism'

Posted on April 15, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



You know, it’s not always easy being the “baseball guy” at one of the nation’s top institutions of learning.

But it’s easier now than it used to be. Cultural Studies are acknowledged as an important part of higher education. Popular culture, sports, movies and the like are now in liberal arts curricula.

The phrase, “A Gentle Trinitarian Mysticism,” comes from an essay on baseball by the Catholic philosopher and prolific writer, Michael Novak, in his book, “The Joy of Sports.”

Father/son: 'How 'bout those Sox?'

Posted on March 18, 2010 |
By Karl Lindholm



It wasn’t until last year, when he was 97, that I told my dad to his face that I loved him.

It was an awkward declaration, and I don’t remember his response. He might have said he loved me, too. It really didn’t matter what he said: I knew he loved me. And I have no doubt he knew that I loved him, too.

Instead of saying “I love you,” we would say to each other, “How ‘bout those Red Sox?” For my dad and me, sports were the medium of our sharing.

Down at one end of the gym at Middlebury College, assistant basketball coach Russ Reilly is drilling the Panther big men, Andrew Locke, 6’10”, and Ryan Sharry, 6’8”, and their teammates Jamal Davis 6’6”, Peter Lynch, 6’6”, and Bill Greven, 6’5”, working on moves around the hoop, jump shots, and baseline drives.

Tiger Woods' fall from grace: a lost hero

Posted on December 30, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



I have a neighbor, an avid golfer, who a couple of years ago had the opportunity to play Augusta National Golf Club, and was absolutely thrilled. He would play on the course where the Masters Golf Tournament is held each April, the Valhalla, or Eden, of golf courses, sacred ground, where the immortal gods of golf have trod and reside.

I didn’t dare to tell him that you couldn’t pay me to set foot on Augusta National.

Love the game, but can't play

Posted on December 3, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



It’s hard to sit on the bench in any sport. I know this from personal experience, though some time ago.

It’s especially hard in basketball, it seems to me. There are so few players — only five can play at any one time, and then there’s the tyranny of the clock: only 32 minutes to be parceled out in high school games, 40 in college.

At Middlebury College, two of the best players on this year’s talented team (5-0 so far, with two more home games this week), Kevin Kelleher and Ashton Coghlan, are sitting on the bench and haven’t played a minute this season.

Retirement: Hang on or hang 'em up?

Posted on November 5, 2009 |
By Karl Lindholm



Our favorite athletes are shooting stars. Young at 25, over the hill at 30, their prime years are brief. For the rest of us, it only seems so, as we look back.

Most athletes retire involuntarily and prematurely at 18 or 22, when their school days are over. They have to reinvent themselves, forge new identities, figure out who they are in order to remain relevant and alive.
