Trivia

Q: Cincinnati hosts the Western & Southern Open/Cincinnati Masters tournament this weekend at the Lindner Family Tennis Center in Mason, Ohio. Still the oldest tennis tournament in the United States played in its original city, what are some of the past names of the event?

A: Begun in 1899 as the Cincinnati Open, played on clay courts at the Avondale Athletic Club on the present site of Xavier University, the W & S later became known as the Western Open, the Tri-State Tennis Tournament and the ATP Championships.

 

Today in …

1973 – Baltimore Orioles left fielder Don Baylor completes an amazing two-day run with five hits in five at-bats during a 12-10 victory over the Texas Rangers at Arlington Stadium. Baylor begins the evening with a three-run homer in the first inning off Sonny Siebert and follows with a pair of singles and two doubles. The outburst gives Baylor nine hits in consecutive games. The previous night, Baylor collected a home run, two doubles and a single and added a stolen base during a 7-4 Baltimore win. Over eight games, from Aug. 7-19, Baylor records 19 hits in 28 at-bats for an astounding batting average of .679, despite missing four games due to injuries. Among his 19 hits are six doubles, a triple and three home runs.

CANNON SWEEPS, ANDI WINS 4TH SIRC-IT RACE - BULLDOG CHASE 5K PDF Print E-mail

BATESVILLE – A strong field of 217 runners, including 50-some race day entrants, saw the hometown dominate in Saturday's 14th annual Bulldog Chase 5K.

Batesville native Jim Turchyn, 28, now of Urbana, Ill., beat his 2013 runner-up time (behind South Dearborn senior Joe Rector) with a winning effort of 16:51 for the fifth and final leg of the 2014 Southeast Indiana Racing Circuit five-race series.

West Harrison mom Lisa Andi, 32, won for the fourth time on this year's SIRC-it 5K series, finishing 10th overall in 18:30, just five seconds shy of her course record 2013 time of 18:25.

A small field of just nine race walkers took part in the slightly drizzly event, which started and finished at Batesville Middle School. Maybe they all knew there was no use trying to beat Bill Cannon.

Cannon, 48, of West Harrison, swept all five SIRC-it 5K walk races for the second time in three years, finishing 11-plus minutes ahead of his nearest competitor in 31:58 Saturday.

South Dearborn senior Dustin Beach, 17, of Dillsboro, finished third in Saturday's 5K run, trailing Batesville High School rival Caleb Moster, 15, to the wire, 17:52-17:39.

But Beach made a statement for endurance as the top men's runner on the SIRC-it series leaderboard after all five races, clocking a total time of 1:32.33.

The Shiner junior student-athlete clocked a winning time of 18:35 for the 3.1-mile run, leading a group of teammates that included runner-up Matt Yocum, 17, at 19:41; classmate Claudio Gallegos, 16, third in 19:45; and sophomore Colton Henry, 15, fourth in a time of 21:48.

Trivia

Q: Rory McIlroy won the 96th PGA Championship Sunday at soggy Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, finishing at 16-under-par to beat Phil Mickelson by one stroke. McIlroy also won back-to-back majors, having also won the British Open in July. Name the last golfer to win two consecutive major titles.

A: McIlroy became the first back-to-back golf major winner since Ireland's Padraig Harrington, who also won the British Open and PGA Championship in 2008. He's won his last three starts, including the World Golf Championships – Bridgestone Invitational Aug. 2.

 

Today in …

1984 – Umpires eject 13 individuals during a 5-3 Padres win over the Braves at Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium. The heated afternoon starts when Atlanta pitcher Pascual Perez hits leadoff batter Alan Wiggins with the first pitch of the game. In the second inning, San Diego hurler Ed Whitson throws a ball at Perez's head, which continues to be the target of near-misses by both Whitson and reliver Buddy Booker. In the eighth, Craig Lefferts makes the fourth attempt to hit Perez, and finally connects. A vicious 10-minute brawl erupts. Five fans are arrested and umpire John McSherry clears both benches of all players not participating in the game.

Aurora native Brodie Steigerwald, 6'4

BREMERTON, Wash. – Aurora native Brodie Steigerwald played his first season of professional soccer this summer.

So far, so good, for the 22-year old defender for the Kitsap Pumas of the United Soccer League's Premier Development League.

A fourth-tier club in what's known as the American Soccer Pyramid, the Pumas recently won their PDL Northwest Division regular season championship and went on to capture the Western Conference title.

Kitsap was edged out in the Premier Development League championship match, 1-0, on a 59th minute goal, Sunday, Aug. 3, by the Michigan Bucks, the Great Lakes Division champion, at Ultimate Soccer Arenas in Pontiac, Mich.

Manchester University

Sports Information

MANCHESTER, Ind. - Manchester University soccer senior Mark Zinser looks the part of his other 1,300-plus fellow students.

However, few of the other 1,299 or so can say they handle the many roles he does on campus.

From doing public address for the Sport Management Club’s annual Primetime at the PERC event to working towards being a three-year starter on the Spartans’ men’s soccer squad, the Guilford native isn’t afraid of trying new things or keeping his schedule busy.

“I’ve always had a busy schedule,” he noted. “I’d be kind of lost without it. Even during the summer, I stay on the go, which includes working for a landscaping company this year.”

Anyone who knows his background would understand. A self-proclaimed “farm boy” from Guilford, Ind., a Dearborn County town located right outside of Cincinnati, his youth was filled with chores, school and sports and usually in that order.
