The Famous Clete Boyer Baseball

This is the ball that Clete Boyer threw to me at old Griffith Stadium in 1959, only minutes before the start of my first big league game. And below are the drink cup and popcorn megaphone from that same game.

A Great Photographer and His Great Photographs

My friend and longtime colleague, photographer Michael Coers, died earlier this week. I worked with Michael for ten years - and on countless assignments - at the Courier-Journal in Louisville. Michael retired in the late eighties because of Lyme disease. It had gone undiagnosed for four years.
Click on Michael's photo and it will take you to his obituary. To the right is a link to see a portfolio of his art.

Charlie Leonard Scores 50; Harkleroad Scores 53

Charlie Leonard set the D-B basketball scoring record of 50 in 1957. It stood for 27 years until Randy Harkleroad broke the mark in 1984.
Note also the D-B football stars who signed college letters of intent the same day Charlie broke Stan Johnson's record of 49, set three years earlier.
