Indy Ball Weekly Perspective: Pace of Play Initiative releases results

By: Devon Teeple

The Pace of Play initiative has released the results of the first 30 days, this according to an Atlantic League press release.

The POP panel consists of some of the greatest baseball minds the game has ever seen: Tal Smith, Roland Hemond, Pat Gillick, Joe Klein, Cecil Cooper, Bud Harrelson, and Sparky Lyle. I even had a chance to speak with Smith earlier this year, inquiring as to what the group was looking for. Was it strictly shortening the length of games, keeping the fans happy, or both? It seems like a pretty simple scenario, but one that has to be implemented very carefully as not to disrupt the integrity of the game.

UFC's Eddie "Truck" Gordon is an inspiration to those that dare to dream

By: Devon Teeple

So you wanna be a UFC fighter?

That's what Eddie "Truck" Gordon wanted. He had a dream, but a dream that required sacrifice. Gordon has a family, a full-time job and all the responsibilities that comes with being an adult. But what motivates someone to leave the stability behind and pursue something with no guarantees?

Gordon had the unwavering belief in himself and his abilities that he could become on one of the UFC's best. The journey culminated with a victory on The Ultimate Fighter 19 Finale. The win not only showcases his talent, but also shows that when you have a dream, stay motivated, and have the support of friends and family, anything is possible.
