World Series managers, ceremonial pitches and patriotic performances
By Bill Barrows
 
This year’s World Series has a couple of interesting storylines starting with the two team managers.
 
Dave Roberts of the Los Angeles Dodgers and A.J. Hinch of the Houston Astros were both big league players who were best known as role players, not stars. Both were good journeyman players who adapted and knew their role with the team. Roberts played for five major league teams and Hinch four. Hinch was a very intelligent catcher who used  brains to gain advantages behind the plate. Roberts was a speedy outfielder whose claim to fame up to now was stealing 2nd base in Game 4 of the ALCS that provided the spark for the rally in the 2004 Boston Red Sox run to their first World Championship since 1918.

For the second time in as many years, the Southwood Knights advanced to the finals of the IHSAA Sectional 43 finals on Friday night.

The Knights advanced with a 51-19 win over Eastside on Friday night.

Eastside threatened on its first possession, but the Knight defense stiffened and stopped the drive.

On its first possession, Southwood quarterback Carson Blair connected with Peyton Trexler on a 65-yard pass play, the first of five for the night for Blair.
