  • A-Rod case turns game upside down

    We live in a topsy-turvy world when the highest paid player in baseball faces a long-term suspension and his own team is OK with that but opponents don’t think it’s fair.
    Unless you’ve been vacationing on another planet, you know that Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees has been suspended for 211 games for apparently using steroids the last three years after admitting he used them in 2003 but saying he was clean since then.

    TELL CITY—Experience and stability, two things that have been rare on Tell City’s football team for years, give the Marksmen high hopes for their first winning record in seven years and only the second one in 12 years.
    Forty-five players, the team’s most in three years, reported for practice last week. The team also has 13 seniors after having only two or three play each of the last two years.

    TELL CITY—Wes Deom of Tell City was just one point short of a perfect score as he won the bowhunter male division of the Schweizer Fest archery tourney Saturday.
    Deom scored 299 of a possible 300 to win the highest scoring category of the tourney.
    He edged Tell City High School senior Nathan Freeman by two points.
    Morris Denton of Robards, Ky., placed third in that division with 294 points.

    TELL CITY—Possibly deterred by the threat of rain, one of the smallest turnouts ever showed up for the Schweizer Fest old-timers baseball game Tuesday.
    But the 14 who played (some older ones came just to watch) put on a good show in the five innings.
    One team turned a triple play, and that was not even voted the best defensive play of the game.
    Jeremy Edwards caught a fly ball that two of the young pinch-runners did not think he would get to. Neither tagged up, and both were doubled off base.

    TELL CITY—Schweizer Fest sports events were scheduled to start with the archery tourney Saturday but will move into high gear this week.

    Registration begins at 5 p.m. at the field. Batting practice will start shortly after, with the game starting at approximately 6:30 p.m.
    Tri-state players age 40 and older are eligible to participate. Trophies will be awarded for the longest hit, best defensive play, and oldest player.

    TELL CITY—Athletes of all ages are always looking for an outlet for their competitive nature, and several area adults have found it in Tell City dart leagues.

    LUBBOCK, Texas—After first deciding to remain on the University of Minnesota’s basketball staff with new coach Richard Pitino, Tell City graduate Steven Goodson has changed his mind and is following Tubby Smith to Texas Tech.
    Goodson, 30, had been on Minnesota’s staff the last six years but had been with Smith 12 years, starting as a student manager for his University of Kentucky team in 2001.
