Ladies and gentlemen, during my chat with the daughter of famous temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home in Hillsboro, I realized I had not yet asked the daughter’s name – but it turns out I did not have to do so.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we left the Mother Thompson Home last week, the daughter of famous temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson was reminiscing about the golden wedding anniversary celebration that was held for her parents in the historic house on Sept. 21, 1887.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I am chatting with the daughter of Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson on the porch of the historic Mother Thompson home, she mentions her parents’ “Golden Wedding” anniversary in passing.

    Ladies and gentlemen, as I sit on the porch of the Mother Thompson Home, chatting with the daughter of early temperance crusader Eliza Jane Trimble Thompson, I talk with her about the historic edifice.

    “The ‘sober after-thought’ of this great movement had crystallized into the ‘Woman’s Christian Temperance Union,’ and Mother’s temperance work now was the presidency of the Hillsboro Union, attending national and state conventions, a correspondence in all parts of our own and other countries with the temperance workers and the highest work her prayers for the cause and the laborers.”

    “I loved it so much I never stopped playing it,” Wooten said. “From the Clowns to semi-pro ball with the Goldsboro Braves, to softball, I played until it got to the point where the doctor said, ‘If you don’t stop playing, with that knee, you’re going to end up in a wheelchair.’ So after about two or three more surgeries on it — it’s bone on bone now, and I’ve got arthritis in it — I stopped when I was about 47, 48. I could still hit, but they’d throw me out at first base from the outfield, so it was time to go.

    "I use my single windup, my double windup, my triple windup, my hesitation windup, my no windup,” Paige said. “I also use my step-n-pitch-it, my submariner, my sidearmer and my bat dodger. Man's got to do what he's got to do." And for more than four decades, Satchel Paige did just that – and then some.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when he played with the Indianapolis Clowns back in the 1960s, Hubert “Big Daddy” Wooten wasn’t a big man by any means – he stands just 5-foot-8 (“maybe 5-foot-8 1/2,” he laughs). But there wasn’t a ballpark that could hold him if he got into a pitch.

    Ladies and gentlemen, nearly three quarters of a century ago, Cincinnati had a pair of professional baseball teams. Of course, there were the Reds, but some might not realize there was another ball club called the Clowns. The Clowns had built a following as one of baseball’s favorite entertainment attractions during the 1930s.

  • Boys of summers past: King of Diamonds, Part 4
    Wednesday, April 5, 2017 6:12 PM
    Fidel Castro was Cuba’s prime minister, and the Red Wings were going to play a game against the University of Havana, just as Clyde King and the Dodgers did during spring training in 1947. King told me he was the team’s pitcher that afternoon in ’47 and posted the win as the Dodgers beat the Havana team. “Can you believe that?” King laughed. “I beat Fidel Castro.”
