  • Thanks for Dad, coaches who were...

    A few weeks back, I was summoned to the office lobby where Billy “Clyde” Self, a former Dixie Youth baseball teammate, stopped by to see me.

    He didn’t have to say why. I knew. Some years back, Billy told me he’d come across an old team photo of our Dixie Youth Baseball farm league team.

    The farm league was for those players who were cut from the Dixie Youth teams after tryouts. Billy had told me he had the old photo and I knew one day he’d make a stop at the paper.

  • Lancaster Women’s...

    Another day of rising early began with a visit to Colegio de La Salle, the school our coach, Bo Sylvia attended as a child. Being a K-12 school, the building was huge.

    Four stories plus a gym, pool and huge courtyard where all the students mingle during recess. The visit and tour of the school were phenomenal. The kids were welcoming and friendly. Our team felt like movie stars.

  • Neff's Omaha diamond chance...

    There was a twist of irony to Gamecock pitcher Steven Neff’s first full week of June.

    It started with Neff,  the Lancaster Dixie Baseball product who starred for Lancaster High School and the Post 31 Legion baseball programs, being drafted for the second time in his career.

    It was capped with Neff’s USC team rallying for an exciting 10-9 NCAA Super Regional win over Coastal to capture a bid to the College World Series in Omaha, Neb.

    The last time he was drafted was out of LHS, when he was picked in the 26th round by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

  • Toast to 'Teet'

    FORT LAWN The signs around the banquet room at the Catawba Fish camp said it all.

    “Papaw, tell us about the good old days.”

    They did, but this grandfather was the center of attention Friday night when a group of friends and family surprised Flat Creek native Marvin “Teet” Faulkenberry with a rousing roast at the Fort Lawn seafood restaurant.

    Faulkenberry’s daughter, Ginger Dove, said the event for her 79-year-old father was something she’s planned for two years.
