But on Saturday, Perry traded in his headset and playbook for a set of golf clubs as Lincoln Homestead State Park played host to the annual Commander Golf Classic.

    Despite a light early-morning rain, the course was in great shape as teams of four took to the links to raise money for the WC football boosters.

  • From Left Field

    Sometimes you just have to treat yourself. After wrapping up two hectic weeks of Little League all-stars, I had enough hours saved up to take a very rare Friday off. So I decided to check out a Reds game in Cincinnati, my first of the year.

    I lucked out because the game I attended featured a 20th anniversary celebration of the 1990 championship team. It was also MC Hammer night (The Reds’ unofficial theme song that year was U Can’t Touch This).
