Cubs wrapped a 3 game series with the Reds by winning two of three over the weekend including a nail-biter of a win on Sunday night. Also on Sunday, three Cubs were named to the National League All Star team but perhaps not the players you might expect.

Galva Coach Steve Osborne Salutes His Lady Wildcat Softball Team

First, I’d like to apologize to the Galva fans and your listeners for not participating in the Coaches’ Corner this spring.  I’m sure everyone in the area knows, I had a very young, inexperienced team this season.  We were primarily focused on the basics and fundamentals of the game and not results.  I simply didn’t feel it necessary to waste your time each Saturday when there wasn’t much to say nor much difference from week to week.
With that being said though, I would now like to publicly recognize my players and coaches.  They definitely deserve it.  This group of girls were thrust into a tough situation at no fault of their own and they handled it very well.  They learned a great deal of softball, gained life lessons and had so much fun doing it.  After all, aren’t these three things what youth sports are all about?  So, even if our record doesn’t show it, I consider this season a success.  It can only help these girls in the future and they are better, stronger young ladies for having endured it.   
The team consisted of only two upperclassmen, both seniors, five sophomores and four freshmen.  The seniors are Marie Marshall and Megan Nordstrom.  They provided outstanding, positive leadership to their young teammates.  Although frustrated at times they never showed it, successfully handling things in an adult manner beyond their years.  Marie worked extremely hard to even return and play her senior season as she had major surgery on a serious hamstring injury last October.  Megan looked forward to her last year, stepping up to play third base very well after not seeing much playing time her previous three seasons.  This tells me their senior seasons really meant something very special to them.  Thank you ladies!  The sophomores are Tressa Rogers, Emma Lindquist, Elly Olsen, Paige Smith and Julia Stahl.  The freshmen are Bailey Bates, Abby Jones, Autumn Puckett and Taylor Warner.  Thank you to them as well!
Next, I would be remiss without thanking my two assistant coaches and faithful manager.  They are my daughter, Lindsey Osborne, Chad Gibbs and senior Rosie Howell.  All three did tremendous work.  Lindsey with the pitchers and catchers and as bench coach.  Chad as the hitting instructor and first base coach.  Rosie was my right hand and often knew what I needed before I did!  A huge thank you to all three for their contributions and for keeping me in check and sane this season!
Finally, to you Bob, a heartfelt thank you as always.  Your coverage and support of high school sports in the area is top notch.  The communities, schools, players, coaches and fans truly appreciate it.  There are no two ways about it, you’re simply the best!

Chiefs to Host Hall of Fame Manager Tony LaRussa May 5

 

 

The Peoria Chiefs have announced that three-time World Series champion and Baseball Hall of Famer Tony LaRussa will be the VIP guest at Dozer Park, on Saturday, May 5 as the Chiefs host South Bend. The Chiefs and Walter G. Jacob Foundation have partnered together to bring LaRussa to Peoria in a fundraiser that will benefit the local non-profit St. Jude Rides. LaRussa will throw out a ceremonial first pitch and sign autographs on the concourse. The May 5 game also includes previously announced promotions of Cinco de Mayo Day, Kentucky Derby Day and post-game Fireworks.

     Fans wishing to hear LaRussa speak in a Q & A in the right field party area can purchase a $50 ticket that includes the Home Run Buffet and a ticket to the game. LaRussa will speak in right field from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. for the Q & A and the buffet will run for 90 minutes starting at 6:00. Tickets for the right-field event and regular tickets for the game are available on the Chiefs website at www.peoriachiefs.com or at the Dozer Park Box Office which is open Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

     LaRussa will throw out a ceremonial first pitch prior to the game and will sign autographs on the concourse from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Autographs are $59 for one item and the proceeds for the night benefit the St. Jude Rides.

     “We are very excited about this event which brings one of the greatest managers in baseball history and a Cardinals legend to Dozer Park in May,” said Chiefs General Manager Jason Mott. “Cardinals fans and Central Illinois baseball fans alike have an opportunity to interact and get an autograph from a Hall of Famer and raise money for a great cause at the same time.”

     A four-time Manager of the Year and one of only two managers to win the World Series in both leagues, LaRussa was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 2014 after receiving 100% of the votes from the Expansion Era Committee. When he retired after the 2011 World Series, LaRussa became the first manager to retire the same season after winning a title. He is the only manager in MLB history to win multiple pennants in both leagues and his 2728 victories rank third all-time behind Connie Mack and John McGraw.

     LaRussa managed the St. Louis Cardinals from 1996-2011 winning two World Series championships and finishing with a record of 1408-1182 in the regular season and 50-42 in the playoffs. Under his leadership the Cardinals made the playoffs nine times in 16 seasons and they played in the NLCS seven times, including three straight from 2004-06. LaRussa’s Cardinals teams won at least 90 games on seven occasions including 100 in 2005 and 105 in 2004. LaRussa was named the National League Manager of the Year in 2002 making him the second skipper to win the award in both leagues and the first to win the award four times. LaRussa’s #10 has been retired by the Cardinals and he was inducted into the Cardinals Hall of Fame in 2014 as part of the inaugural class

    

 

 

     Prior to joining the Cardinals, LaRussa led the Oakland A’s from mid 1986-1995 with four playoff appearances from 1988-82. After winning 104 games, Oakland fell in the 1988 World Series to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The won 99 games in 1989 and swept the San Francisco Giants in a World Series that was interrupted by the devastating Loma Prieta earthquake prior to Game 3. In 1990 the A’s won 103 games but lost in the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds. While with Oakland, LaRussa was named American League Manager of the Year in 1988 and 1992.

    LaRussa began his managerial career in 1979 with the Chicago White Sox as he took over for the final 54 games. He led the South Siders to their first playoff appearance since 1959 with an AL West Division title and a 99-63 record in 1983. That success earned LaRussa his first AL Manager of the Year award.

    LaRussa managed in the Minor Leagues as well as he helmed the Double-A Knoxville Sox in 1978 and the Triple-A Iowa Oaks to start the 1979 season. Although he didn’t play in the Midwest League, LaRussa played parts of 15 seasons in the Minor Leagues with the A’s, Braves, White Sox, Pirates, Cubs and Cardinals organizations. He broke into the Major Leagues for 34 games with the Kansas City Athletics in 1963 and returned to the Majors in Oakland in 1968. His final MLB appearance as a player came in 1973 with the Cubs.

   A native of Tampa, Florida and a graduate of the Florida State University College of Law, LaRussa and his wife Elaine are founders of Tony LaRussa’s Animal Rescue Foundation in Walnut Creek, California.
