The communication between a baseball coach and a player on the base paths can be hard to follow at times. A swipe of the shoulder. A pat on the head. Quick touch to the nose. It's subtle and used to keep an opponent off guard with hit and runs, bunts, and steals.
But in the the bottom of the seventh inning of the Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team's 10-9 win in the first game of a double header with Fargo Monday at Charlie Brown Memorial Field, VC third baseman Collin Schroeder got things mixed up on the base paths.

July 16, 2012

Many of us have fond memories of family picnics and outdoor cooking from childhood. All you needed was a blanket and some food and you could set up a picnic on your lawn, at a park or even in the living room in the winter.

Steele resident Enzminger enjoys riding close to home

July 15, 2012

Being a professional bull rider is somewhat of a dream for 20-year-old Clayton Enzminger.
Nearly every weekend, the Steele resident hits the road with friend and travel partner Cole Hermanson to ride in rodeos, including some on the Professional Bull Riding circuit, all across the nation.
The only problem is that the events tend to be far from home.
"There are opportunities that come close, but going to PBRs and pro rodeos, you've got to travel a lot," said Enzminger, who rides as a pro but has yet to ride in a PBR event.
