Wooden Bat League competition
comes to Lincoln

[SEPT. 9, 2000]  Prior to this September, Lincoln baseball fans could satisfy their yearning for the American pastime by focusing exclusively on professional baseball. Local summer leagues and the Little League World Series are history. This fall, however, something new has come to Lincoln: a wooden bat league. A team primarily of Lincoln High School baseball players has joined the "Second Season" Wooden Bat League. The next game for Lincoln will be played at Lincoln Christian College at noon on Sunday, Sept. 10, against Mattoon.

Part 3 - At Fenway Park

East Coast swing takes LDN to New York and to Boston

By Jeff Mayfield
[SEPT. 9, 2000]  Last week I cracked the door of my life and gave you a peek into my baseball pilgrimage. This week I will do something I’ve never done before: share my annual baseball trip with the general public. For years I have visited baseball stadiums around the country. If I visit a city for the first time on business or pleasure and a baseball game just happens to be scheduled there while I’m in town…I figure that God wants me in attendance for some special reason.

STILL WATERS

By Sam Redding

Dreams of green

A challenge to those who would lead our city

[SEPT. 9, 2000]  Our first house in Lincoln was on Union Street, a grand street with blocks of massive old houses, no two alike. Our children were small in our Union Street days, and when we put the baby in the stroller and took the crew for a walk, we usually sought out Park Place or Lincoln Avenue—streets with parkways (some people call them boulevards). The strips of vegetation down the middle of these two streets produce a calm, quiet, peaceful aura that is right for family strolls.
