Hall of Famer Forrest Yantis’ photographs step into the light By Marc Katz I don’t know how Troy’s Forrest Yantis made it onto the field, and neither do many of the people who work at baseball’s Hall of Fame in Cooperstown, where a trove of his exquisite back-and-white baseball portraits from the 1920s-’30s now reside.

It’s YOU D By Marc Katz The year Archie Miller was hired to coach the University of Dayton men’s basketball team, Butler and VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University) made it to the Final Four. That was 2011. Last season, Villanova won the whole thing. That’s Kentucky and Duke and Indiana and North Carolina and Kansas territory. […]

  He saw, he learned, he won UD coach Mike Tucker says goodbye By Marc Katz Over the years, lots of people not interested in any particular sport asked me general rules of some game in case they were caught in a situation where they had to watch. It’s all about runs scored or points […]

Minuita wins the Series By Marc Katz   Baseball’s off-season runs on minutia, and I’m going to get right to one of the best pieces of minutia I’ve ever seen. It’s not the 108-year gap between the Chicago Cubs’ World Series championships, or the 68-year-and-continuing winless run of the Cleveland Indians. You didn’t have to […]

It’s a rigged vote By Marc Katz The polls are rigged. Of course they’re rigged. How could they not be? If you’re in the Big Ten, SEC, Pac-12, ACC, or Big 12 (or have the nickname Fighting Irish), you stand a much better chance of being selected for the college football playoffs Dec. 31, even […]

A life too short By Marc Katz   I spoke to Elijah Chatman the morning he died 43 years ago. He wasn’t sick and I can’t remember a word he said, except it probably was entertaining. I was gathering preview material for the Dayton Public League basketball season, about to begin, just a week after […]

Pigskins and pints By Marc Katz I’m actually writing this before the Ohio State football game at Wisconsin Saturday night, but the marching orders from this paper have always been to write a sports column without the scores. So that’s exactly what I’m going to do, and not tell you the Buckeyes beat the Badgers […]

UD Flyers play top football, too Sure, I could take you on a nostalgia trip back to the late 1950s and early 1960s when my brothers and I would walk the six blocks to Capital University in the Columbus suburb of Bexley to watch the Crusaders play what amounted to Division III football at old […]

With a smile and a wink Arnold Palmer in Dayton By Marc Katz   One of Dayton’s extraordinary golf writers, Bucky Albers, says he can count four times Arnold Palmer visited Dayton, and that doesn’t include his play in the old Kroger Senior Classic in nearby Mason. Albers, a long-time sports writer for the Dayton […]

Guaranteed rate by Marc Katz A lot of people got a lot of laughs when the Chicago White Sox sold the naming rights to their stadium to Guaranteed Rate, a lending company whose name does not sound all that much better than U.S. Cellular Field, the replacement park for the old Comiskey Park – which […]

Growing up with the Reds Jay Bruce: power hitter, nice guy By Marc Katz I was going to use this space for something else this week, but I can’t get Jay Bruce out of my mind. Little more than a month after the struggling Reds traded their power-hitting outfielder to the Mets, Bruce visited Cincinnati […]

Dreamer to famer Chet Moeller’s quiet ride to the Hall of Fame By Marc Katz   He was a dreamer, Chet Moeller said of himself. He grew up in Kettering, when Jack Tatum was starring at safety for Ohio State. He saw the All-America Tatum and thought some day he could be that kind of […]

Back in the game

With Reds’ Dave Miley By Marc Katz   You will not be wrong if you happen by Franklin County High School in Brookville, Indiana, next spring and think you see former Reds Manager Dave Miley coaching the baseball team there. It will be Miley teaching the game, settling down where his wife Andrea grew up […]

Buck it

The great expectations of Ohio State By Marc Katz Politicians always claim to be able to do things that can’t be done, and football coaches publically hope they can win a game they can’t possibly lose. Why is that? Why are politicians so sure of themselves and football coaches so cautious? Well, I don’t really […]

No character like McVie By Marc Katz I know, there were iconic entertainment groups that played early in their careers at Hara Arena, and plenty of rodeos and truck pulls and politicians, as well. But the also iconic complex that will close with a comic book show this week will always be known to me […]

Sports music By Marc Katz If you read Dayton City Paper regularly, you probably know of Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg. If you only read this column, you don’t know anything about her at all. Neal Gittleman introduced us, though it’s a story. It’s like one of those Donald Trump stories – I know her well, except, I […]
