Stricklin’s passion for sports spans generations

June 26, 2012

At 6 feet, 6 inches tall, Ty Buttrey stands well over his grandmother, Valley City’s Jacquette “Ketta” Stricklin.
Side by side, Ketta’s head hardly reaches her grandson’s shoulder.
“He didn’t get the height from me,” she jokes.
His response is more matter-of-fact.
“I got the athletic ability from you,” he quickly responds.
Buttrey, who graduated from high school earlier this month in North Carolina, was ranked by Baseball America as the #38 prospect in the Major League Baseball draft, which took place earlier this month.

Babe Ruth sweeps double header

Late rally gets Post 60 past Galchutt

June 24, 2012

As the clock passed 9 p.m. Friday and darkness started to replace the natural light at Charlie Brown Memorial Field, the Valley City Post 60 baseball team had two goals.
First — Get through the fifth inning of its second game that night with Galchutt. Second — Scrap a few runs together and get the win.
By the time the game finished roughly 20 minutes later, both tasks were complete as the team, which played as the visitor on the score board in the second game, won 4-3 after scoring three runs in the top of the fifth.

Grandson of VC resident signs with Redsox

June 24, 2012

There’s quite an age difference between long-time Valley City resident Jacquette “Ketta” Stricklin, 84, her grandson, Ty Buttrey, a recent high school graduate in North Carolina.
Besides genetics, the two have at least one thing in common — an uncanny ability on the diamond.
Stricklin celebrates her 85th birthday Saturday, and Ty Buttrey will be among those making the trip up to celebrate.

Post 60 splits double header with Great Bend, Wahpeton

June 24, 2012

The Valley City Post 60 American Legion baseball team plays plenty of double headers throughout its season, but Thursday’s home games at Charlie Brown Memorial Field had a slight twist on the formula.
Rather than playing one opponent twice, Post 60 beat Great Bend 6-2, then immediately played Wahpeton in a 12-0 loss.
“It’s kind of like playing in a tournament,” said Valley City coach Jason Beilke. “It’s two games in a row with two different teams.”
The two games, both of which were rescheduled from earlier in the season, ended up being played differently.

Vikings not interested in trading Harvin

June 20, 2012

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman says they have no interest in trading star receiver Percy Harvin.
Spielman spoke Wednesday afternoon a few hours after word spread that Harvin had requested a trade. Harvin lashed out Tuesday, saying he was unhappy with several issues on the team, but did not specify what was bothering him.
Harvin has two years left on his rookie contract. He was at the Vikings' mandatory minicamp practice Wednesday morning but did not speak to reporters.

The Catch: Things things to hate about Miami's no. 6

June 19, 2012

Wondering what topic to write about this week, I found myself sitting around a campfire at a friend’s lake cabin Friday night. As the twelve of us visited and bounced from topic to topic, the mood was very laid back, as you would expect from a weekend at the cabin. And then one person’s name was brought up, causing the calm, laid back chatter to suddenly turn serious and defensive.
That name was LeBron James.

Babe Ruth takes 6th in own tourney

June 17, 2012

The Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team didn’t necessarily play badly in its final game of the annual Pizza Corner Classic.
The problem in its 10-0 loss to Steele afternoon was that a few unlucky breaks added up and left the team with a 6th place finish in its own tournament.
The two-day tournament wrapped up Sunday at Charlie Brown Memorial Field and featured teams from southwestern North Dakota.
“We had a snowball effect,” said coach Lance Lukes. “We made a mistake, we made another one after that, and it led to a big inning for them.”
