Clippings by Karl Lindholm: Doctor Baseball sings a bedtime song

Posted on November 25, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Boring. Same thing, year after year.

For nearly 10 years, I have offered the same item for the service auction at our church:

Go to a Lake Monsters Game in Burlington with Doctor Baseball”: four people, everything included — a ride to and from the game, tickets, program, hot dog/beer, pretentious inside-baseball conversation.

The minimum bid is $100. The actual value: “Priceless.”

That’s me, “Doctor Baseball.”

Karl Lindholm: Baseball in Cuba: More than a sport

Editor’s note: This is the second of a two-part series. Read part one here.

“It could be a train wreck,” was Oscar’s apprehensive assessment.

We were having a late night impromptu discussion of the future of Cuban baseball in Kit Krieger’s 17th-floor room in the Habana Libre Hotel. We had just returned from watching Industriales of Havana defeat Camaguey, 7-1, at Estadio Latinamericano.

Karl Lindholm: Oscar and me and the Cubaballistas

Editor’s note: This is the first of two parts.

I followed Oscar.

He gestured subtly and said, “Come with me.”

We had just been entertained by Victor Mesa, the manager of the Matanzas Cocodrilos, in the clubhouse just a half-hour before his game against Ciego de Avila.

Sports column by Karl Lindholm: Red Sox season ends; wait'll next year!

Posted on October 8, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Sunday, October 4, last day of baseball’s regular season:

“It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone.” — A. Bartlett Giamatti

Karl Lindholm: Don & Jerry, Curt Gowdy, 'Balee Baloo,' and my Mom

Posted on September 10, 2015 |

karl lindholm.jpg

My mother almost ruined me for sports.

When I was just a kid, eight or ten or so, I was listening to a Red Sox game on the radio at home, and the Red Sox unloaded on an opposing pitcher, scoring a bunch of runs, and driving the poor guy from the game.

I exulted, casting aspersions no doubt on the other team and its woeful pitcher: “Hit the showers, you bum!” I said, or some other such churlish comment.

Karl Lindholm: It was old – and then it was new

Posted on August 13, 2015 |

Lindholms at game.jpg

I had forgotten just how much fun it is to go to a professional baseball game in Burlington. I used to go all the time, but age, obligation, and habit combined to change my summer routines. I became less keen to drive up Route 7 to Centennial Field (and back!) night after night.

The first few years the Expos were here (they arrived in 1994), we had season tickets and came to as many games as we could, giving away our tickets to Middlebury friends when we were otherwise obliged.

Karl Lindholm: Ubiquitous announcer-man: Dave Sears

Posted on July 15, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



Editor’s note: Local sports figure Dave Sears died on Saturday at the age of 56 (see obituary on Page 6A). In February 2007, sports columnist Karl Lindholm offered this perspective on Dave’s generous, gregarious nature, and his powerful engagement in the community.

Every time I turn around I bump into Dave Sears. The man is everywhere. I think there must be three or four of him.

Karl Lindholm: Baseball uses silent language

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign

Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

All I did was open and close my fist, subtly — then all hell broke loose:

Karl Lindholm: 'Play Balle!' au Montreal; will Major League Baseball return?

Posted on June 3, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



They’re talking about bringing Major League baseball back to Montreal. How great would that be!

“They” are Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred and Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre, big boys who can make things happen, or at least get things started.

It’s a long way off, no doubt, until expansion or relocation brings an MLB team to La Metropole. Manfred has said that the “big thing” for Montreal is to have an “adequate facility to support baseball over the long haul.”

Karl Lindholm: Pete Rose and the Hall: Do it if you must, just get it over with

Posted on May 6, 2015 |
By Karl Lindholm



I am not Pete Rose’s biggest fan.

Actually I can’t stand the man. He’s repulsive.

Go ahead. Reinstate him, put him in the Hall of Fame, and be over with it. Just do it. I’ll get used to it.

Pete was a great player, more or less, and deserves to be in, I guess. He’s not as great as he and his supporters think: his most celebrated attribute was superfluous hustle — sprinting to first on a walk, sliding head-first.
