    Why so serious?

    If you’re going to spend as much time as I do at ball fields, it helps to have a good sense of humor. Otherwise, you would go completely bonkers and wind up in a padded cell.

    Washington County High School was the scene last week for the 2009 Commander Football Camp. WCHS head football Mark Perry and his staff instructed area youths age 8-13 in the basic fundamentals of offense and defense.

    The softball field at Burg Park got its share of action this past weekend as several local teams gathered for a tournament to benefit the Washington County Relay for Life.

    Finishing in first place was Buzzard Roost. Second place went to Sac and Sons Kentucky Wreckers. Rounding out the top three was Merchants Micken.

    With a sunny sky and a comfortable temperature, it was a perfect day to be out on the diamond raising money for Relay.

    As the last Little League baseball games are set to be played this Thursday, other leagues are just getting underway at Idle Hour Park in Springfield.

    The 11-12-year-old Reds captured the league championship with wins over the Red Sox and Mets last week, finishing with an 8-2 record over the second-place Mets, who finished 5-5.

    Things are still up for grabs in the 9-10-year-old league, where the Reds hold a one-game lead over the Cubs with two games remaining on each team’s schedule.

    The summer games

     One of my favorite parts of summer is getting outdoors, doing some grilling, and most of all, enjoying my favorite summer activities.

    One way to stay in shape or get some exercise is to simply toss a frisbee around a state park or setting up the lawn darts in the back yard.

    What? Did he say lawn darts? Yes, I miss lawn darts!
