Norwayne players take the ImPACT test that will give team doctors a baseline report should they suffer a concussion.

Norwayne has proactive approach to concussion testing

| August 5, 2011 | 0 Comments

Kudos to the  Norwayne football team for taking a proactive approach to dealing with concussions. Instead of starting out the 2011 season with footballs flying through the air, Bobcats coach Joe Harbour let the trainers from Wooster’s HealthPoint take over to run an NFL-style combine that included ImPACT concussion testing. Perhaps the most thorough football […]

Minor League games have something for everyone

| July 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

Recently my fiancé and I went on vacation to Ocean Isle, N.C. While there, we made the 40-minute drive to Myrtle Beach and took in a Pelicans Minor League Baseball game. The Pelicans are the advanced Single-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers. For our game, the promotion was “Wizard Night,” in conjunction with Harry Potter, […]

early WCAL football preview

| July 12, 2011 | 0 Comments

Although July is traditionally the month during which sports writers — particularly those covering mostly high school sports and those getting up their in age (and I fit both categories) — we’ve been kicking around ideas for the DR football preview. While I’m not quite ready to dive into that work — I’m in summer […]

After eight years (and one day) my time is finally over here in the sports world at The Daily Record. Hard to believe. When I was talking to Art when he called me tonight, I have spent more time with him in the past eight years than I have my husband. It will be an […]

Billker one and done at Dalton

| July 4, 2011 | 0 Comments

Shawn Billker’s surprise resignation Thursday as the Dalton football coach came after he said he had a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance to go back to North Canton Hoover. Billker was chosen out of a field of 60 applicants to take the Dalton job after HOFer Bob Ramsay retired, but coached there just one year before going back […]

Yeah, yeah, I know – I give the Tribe some love a few days ago, then it starts to fall apart. Thanks to Jonathan Sanchez, Cleveland will now be without Shin-Soo Choo for at least a month after Sanchez broke Choo’s thumb with a wild pitch Friday night in San Francisco. And just when Choo […]

Cavs a trade away from getting back to playoffs

Cavs a trade away from getting back to playoffs

| June 25, 2011 | 0 Comments

Adding point guard Kyrie Irving from Duke (No. 1 overall pick) and power forward Tristan Thompson from Texas (fourth overall) gave the Cavs two outstanding young talents to build around. However, it doesn’t take an NBA hoops addict to realize the Cavs are jammed with too many point guards and power forwards. They have Irving, […]

Of course, how could the Cavs have avoided improving on last season, when they only won 19 games. But, with the pick of Kyrie Irving to lead off last night’s NBA draft, they began the long climb back to respectability. Irving, his Duke pedigree aside, was the consensus No. 1 pick, which is what Cleveland […]

In 2010, the Cleveland Indians won their 40th game on July 20, and their 4-3 win tonight over the Rockies puts them at 40-33. The bullpen was lights-out again, and helped keep the Tribe a game in front of Detroit in the AL Central. The White Sox are only five back and the Twins, somehow, […]

Cabrera deserves All-Star start

| June 22, 2011 | 0 Comments

Asdrubal Cabrera won’t win the first slot in voting for the American League shortstop to play in the All-Star Game, but the man deserves it. As of June 23, Cabrera was hitting .296, third among shortstops on the ballot behind Baltimore’s J.J. Hardy (.304) and, gasp, Detroit’s Jhonny Peralta (.298). And while the man has often […]
