Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Béisbol Paradiso produces another big-time talent

Posted on June 20, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



The name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, like Mickey Mantle or Bo Jackson, the players he is being compared to. That’s pretty good company.

He can also be compared to the great Negro League Hall of Famers, Oscar Charleston, perhaps, or even more precisely his countrymen, Cristóbal Torriente, “The Cuban Strongboy,” or “El Inmortal” Martin Dihigo.

Meet Yasiel Puig (yah-zeal pweeg).

Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: Local words of wisdom apply on the world stage

Posted on June 13, 2013 |

Typically, it’s reassuring when people who know more than you agree with your point of view.

On June 8 I was covering the Vergennes-U-32 quarterfinal softball game when someone with a more than casual interest showed up, Otter Valley coach Pattie Candon. Candon’s Otters had a potential semifinal matchup with the winner of that Saturday game, and was scouting.

Sports Column by Karl Lindholm: Nava not just a folk hero

Posted on May 30, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



Late last summer, I was chatting with Lynn and Mike McKenna in front of the Middlebury Market about the woes of the Red Sox, who were headed for last place, limping to a miserable finish.

They were waxing enthusiastic about Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava, their favorite player.

Nava is a most unlikely major-leaguer. The Red Sox plucked him from independent ball in 2008 after playing for the Chico Outlaws of the Golden Baseball League in California. The Red Sox paid the Outlaws $1.00 (that’s right — one dollar) for the rights to sign him.

Sports Column by Matt Dickerson: A rainbow spotted before a storm

Posted on May 23, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



I arrived at the New Haven River at 7 p.m. Thankfully, though the water was still running clear, the light rain of the previous few days had the water up a bit from the unseasonably low level of early May. The sky was overcast, but the weather was holding. Conditions looked promising all around. Furthermore, the forecast was for steady rain the next few days, including scattered thunderstorms, so I expected this evening to be the pick of the week.

Sports Column by Andy Kirkaldy: All young kids deserve to play

Posted on May 16, 2013 |
By Andy Kirkaldy



A couple of points to make this week.

One is specific to sports. But first, as always, anonymous letters stink.

Anyone who has something to say in a letter to this or any media outlet should attach his or her name to it, just as we do when we write something. Not doing so can be simply cowardly.

Sports column by Matt Dickerson: Trout season is heating up

Posted on May 9, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



I started my drive toward Otter Creek two hours before sunset. My waders and fly-rod were in the back of the car along with a couple tins of new flies freshly tied over the winter and still undamaged by rocks, branches, or the mouths of fish.

Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Thoughts upon watching '42'

Posted on May 2, 2013 |
By Karl Lindholm



I knew I had a problem when my friend Ben, from California, e-mailed me after watching “42,” the Jackie Robinson story, and being profoundly moved. He said, “Tell me again why you’re not looking forward to seeing this movie.”

True, I have expressed ambivalence. I sometimes tire of the exclusivity of the focus on Jackie Robinson. The more I have learned about the African-American experience in baseball, the more rich stories and worthy figures I have become aware of.

Matt Dickerson: Opening day of trout season featured some success stories

Posted on April 25, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



As is so often the case in Vermont’s early April, the weather and water conditions leading up to opening day of trout fishing were fickle. When the week began, rivers were running unseasonably low and clear thanks in large part to a lack of snow. Very fishable water levels and visibility, combined with a series of warm sunny days during the first half of the week, seemed to promise a delightful — and perhaps even successful — opening day.

Sports Column: Five years in Vermont and still energizing; Haller is a fishing power

Posted on April 11, 2013 |
By Matt Dickerson



When the fifth annual Otter Creek Classic fly-fishing tournament kicks off this Saturday, preceded on Friday evening by the third consecutive sold-out showing of the Fly Fishing Film Tour at the Town Hall Theater, participants of both events will have Ripton resident Jesse Haller to thank.
