Visiting Facilities

first_imgI find it hard to sympathize with Michigan coach, Harbaugh, on the locker room facilities at Purdue University.  Just because Michigan puts 110,000 fans in the stands and has been able to build a state-of-the-art facility, that does not mean that every university will have the same to offer them.In a walk through, Purdue told Michigan there was no air conditioning in their locker room.  Purdue has been upgrading all of their facilities, but they are not yet completed.  Harbaugh should have to put up with some of the facilities available to lower level athletic programs–such as high schools and junior highs.  I remember having some of my teams change in a classroom and not have facilities to shower.  Until Batesville recently completed their upgrade, there were not dressing rooms available to visiting teams.  They were able to provide an area for them, but it was not a state-of-the-art locker room.I guess I find it hard to feel sorry for coaches who make several million dollars a year and their university provides them with luxury facilities.  Ask Butler University athletes about some of the old Hinkle field house locker rooms.last_img read more

Fairly had suffered from cancer.Fairly was the first player to represent two Canadian teams – the Montreal Expos (1973) and Toronto Blue Jays (1977) – in the major-league All-Star Game and played on four World Series teams with the Dodgers (1959, 1963, 1965 and 1966), winning three of them. During the seven-game victory over the Minnesota Twins in 1965, Fairly was 11 for 29 (.379) with three doubles, two home runs and six RBIs.A Long Beach native who attended Long Beach Jordan High, he turned down a basketball scholarship to play for John Wooden at UCLA and instead spent two years at USC, helping the baseball team win the 1958 national championship.
