    Spencer County’s Jacob Cole makes contact with a pitch during a recent home game. The Bears have now lost six games in a row, but their last three decisions have been one-run affairs. Last Wednesday, the Bears dropped a tough 5-4 loss at Shelby County. On Friday, they traveled to Elizabethtown and fell 9-8 to John Hardin. The boys were to be back in action on Monday at home against Washington County, on Tuesday at home against Nelson and on Thursday at Seneca. They’ll have a Saturday home game against Doss at noon.

    Saturday marked my first trip to Churchill Downs on Kentucky Derby Day in 15 years. My last trip was during law school, when I drove down with a group of friends from northwest Indiana and paid for cheap access to the infield and the revelry that goes on there.

    “Unhappy is the land that is in need of heroes,” Bertolt Brecht
    Sport in America today requires we search a little harder, be more selective, for genuine heroes. Considered the mountains of money and cynical judgements of Donald Sterling in Los Angeles and the parade of self-righteous howling critics, who could blame the fan on the street from throwing up his/her hands in disgust. Yet, heroes can be found every day, most every place.
    This week, a handful of qualifiers.

    Recalibrate the mind – critical mass free throws become critical finish exacta, furlong times, the jockey and mile-and-a-quarter.
    Names on our mind’s marquee change too. Julius, Cauley-Stein, Russ and Luke give way to horse owner imaginations – Vicar’s In Trouble, Chitu, We Miss Artie and Uncle Sigh.
    The most exquisite element in sports that draws us back as calendar rolls over, that changes too. What if and If only.

    One of the redeeming qualities of sports is the concept of team. A team helps individuals put aside other differences for a common goal. Perhaps that is most noticeable when you see players from different ethnic backgrounds sharing the same uniform.
