Frederickson Fund donates to Atlantic JSA & AHS football program

News, Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A representative of the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund says the organization recently donated $1,100 to the Atlantic Junior Sports Association (AJSA). Melanie Petty says the funds will help the AJSA to purchase a Football Chute, 5×10-foot Landing Mat and Chute Board Football Training Aides. photo

Petty says they are excited to learn how much the AJSA has grown in the last few years, and look forward to watching the kids continue to play in years to come. She said also, another donation of over $2,000 was given to the AHS Football Program to purchase items they needed to kick off their 2013 season.

Petty says football was always part of Trevor’s life,  so the two donations are a perfect fit for the Memorial Fund to give back to the community.

Winners of first Bob Feller award announced

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

The three winners of the inaugural Bob Feller Act of Valor Award were announced today. Peter Fertig of New York man created the award in tribute to the former Cleveland Indians pitcher from Van Meter, who struck out 17 batters at the age of 17, and was a decorated World War Two anti-aircraft gunner. Fertig consulted with baseball executives, the U-S Navy and Feller’s widow. “I wanted to find a way to honor Bob Feller, a true American patriot and a hero,” Fertig says. He says it’s important to remember what Feller did on and off the baseball diamond.

“Bob was a major league baseball player, rose to the rank of Chief Petty Officer in the United States Navy, and he was a baseball Hall of Famer. My job is to keep his memory alive of what he did. If we forget shame on us,” Fertig explains. Fertig is the president of the award’s foundation which will choose the winners each year. The Act of Valor Award goes to a Hall of Famer, an active baseball player and a Naval officer — each representing a part of what Feller was.

“Bob Feller was a phenom at the age of 23, he had already pitched six years in the major leagues and on December seventh, 1941 he never hesitated, he never wavered, he joined the hardest hit part of our military at that time which was the United States Navy,” Fertig says. The inaugural winners of the award are Yankee’s legend Yogi Berra, Detroit pitcher Justin Verlander, and Chief Petty Officer Garth Sinclair. Berra is now 88, and is cited for his career with the New York Yankees and also for participating in the D-Day invasion in World War Two.

Cardinals homer twice to beat Dodgers 4-2 in NLCS

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Holliday and pinch-hitter Shane Robinson hit the first home runs of the NL championship series, and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-2 on Tuesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the best-of-seven matchup. In a series starved for offense, the Cardinals scored as many runs as they did in the first three games combined, when the teams totaled nine runs.

Hitless in his previous 22 at-bats at Dodger Stadium, Holliday sent a two-run shot off Ricky Nolasco an estimated 426 feet into left field, capping a three-run third that gave the Cardinals a 3-0 lead.

Game 5 is this (Wednesday) afternoon at Dodger Stadium, with the Cardinals one win from the World Series. Zack Greinke is set to start for the Dodgers against Joe Kelly.

Pujols lawyer says Pujols would testify

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — An attorney for Albert Pujols has discounted another lawyer’s suggestion that Pujols and former Cardinals slugger Jack Clark take lie-detector tests to settle Pujols’ defamation lawsuit over Clark’s claim that Pujols used steroids. Pujols is suing Clark, who played for the Cardinals from 1985 to 1987, for his comments on a local radio show accusing Pujols of using steroids. Clark’s lawyer, Al Watkins, suggested Monday both men take polygraph tests.

Pujols, a nine-time All-Star who played for the Cardinals from 2001-11, filed a defamation lawsuit against Clark in St. Louis County, seeking unspecified damages that would be donated to charity. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports Martin Singer, Pujols’ lawyer in Los Angeles where the slugger plays for the Angels, says sworn testimony, “not inadmissible polygraphs and absurd publicity ploys — is what counts.”

Iowa kicks off tough stretch at Ohio State

Sports

October 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — An accommodating schedule and a perfectly placed bye week put Iowa in position for a good start. The Hawkeyes won’t get many more breaks this season. Iowa (4-2, 1-1 Big Ten) will finish 2013 against opponents who are a combined 25-11, with nearly half of those losses coming from Purdue.

The Hawkeyes lost every game they played in the second half of 2012, and they might only be favored once in the final six games of this season. But Iowa is confident that the strides it has made so far will help it avoid another collapse.

The Hawkeyes kick off a grueling stretch on Saturday at fourth-ranked Ohio State (6-0, 2-0). You can hear the game on KJAN.
