Karl Lindholm: Whither baseball: Just too slow?

Posted on November 19, 2014 |
By Karl Lindholm



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.
