Plastic Ice Cream Doesn’t Melt

I got to spend some time with all three of my grandkids over the past few weeks. Fortunately, all three got to spend time together both in Wabash and in North Carolina. We spent time at the Field of Dreams during a busy tournament early in July. Well spent family time was spent enjoying the sights in downtown Wabash during First Friday. Later, we spent some time at my daughter’s home in North Carolina.

A glimpse into a life well lived
By Bill Barrows
 
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend some time reminiscing about an old friend and mentor. I met with the family of long time Wabash High School baseball coach Chris Rood.  We met at the field that since 1995 bears his name. It was a hot and muggy day and nephews Travis and Andy Rood along with Chad Collier had decided that they wanted to play some home run derby before we sat down to talk about their beloved uncle.
 
Doug Rood, Chris’s older brother, also joined in as Wabash baseball assistant Zach Wenrich offered to pitch to them. The combination of the heat and humidity and the fact that Coach Wenrich had not thrown much batting practice since the season ended in early June stymied the boys in their quest to hit one over the fence. I had warned them that there was a breeze blowing in and the fact that the outfield dimensions at Chris Rood Field are of major league length.

Wabash to host the Little League state championship
By Bill Barrows
 
Wabash will have an influx of baseball teams starting on Wednesday, July 26, as 14 teams will begin competition for the Indiana 12 and Under State Championship. All games will be at the Field of Dreams. This year’s edition of players played in the District 9 Tourney and won that earlier this month. Action will run through July 30. The winner will earn the right to represent Indiana at the Central Region Tourney.
 
Danny Lloyd is the manager of the squad. He is assisted by Shannon Floor and Brandon Booth. All three are veteran coaches of Wabash Little League. They have all participated for several years. Coach Lloyd is very excited about this team going into the tourney. To go deep into any tourney, the key is pitching depth. This team seems to have plenty.
