Fort Wayne Sports History (Sports)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:36PM
Description: What would a Fort Wayne Sports Hall of Fame look like and who would it include? The author draws on a lifetime of knowledge – and plenty of research – to tell stories of famous sports figures from the Fort Wayne area and of memorable local events which had major influences on national and international sports. Local athletes have affected almost every level of amateur and professional sport, and many landed in their sports' halls of fame. The city itself has impacted the Super Bowl, the Stanley Cup, the Sullivan Award, the Olympics, NCAA championships, the French Open, NASCAR, the World Series, the NBA, the PGA, the LPGA, the Indy 500 and the World Cup along with numerous national and world championships. Rod Woodson, Bernard Pollard, DaMarcus Beasley, Lloy Ball, Mike Emrick, Eric Wedge, Jarrod Parker, Deshaun Thomas, Cathy Gerring, Tyler Eifert, Anthony Spencer, Jason Baker, Chris Schenkel, DeDee Nathan and Jason Fabini are some of the people who have represented their sport and the city of Fort Wayne.
Homecoming Game (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: After two years, Lars Preston and Max Curry hoped their controversial past as football players at Indiana Western University was finally behind them. They'd found a new place to play and a fresh start at UC-Camarillo, a smaller school they'd help build into a Division I-AA powerhouse. But then during the summer before their senior season, IWU's athletic director calls UC-Camarillo asking for help and offering a huge payday. The Sagamores have run into a scheduling problem and suddenly need a fill-in game, and who better to ask than the former heroes who led IWU to a huge upset three years ago? Despite the doubts of Preston and Curry, the Thunderbolts are flying to the Midwest to play the No. 6-ranked Sagamores on their home field. By revisiting their past, all the ultimate underdogs hope for is a fair chance, but is it for revenge or redemption?
Live From Radio Rinkside: The Bob Chase Story (Sports)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: "For 56 years, Bob Chase has been an institution as the voice of the Fort Wayne Komets, one of the premier franchises in minor league hockey. Thousands of children over five decades have hidden under the covers listening to Chase describe the action throughout the Midwest as they drift off to sleep listening to their heroes. It's possible no one else in America has introduced more people to the sport. He's also been a key voice for WOWO, 1190-AM. During his amazing career, Chase has interviewed superstar athletes, political figures and the elite of American entertainment, including Elvis Presley and Frank Sinatra. A devoted husband, father and grandfather, this is his story.

Intead, Ball chose to play volleyball for his father at Indiana-Purdue Fort Wayne. Though many people still tell him they thought he made a mistake by not going to IU, Ball won a gold medal in his fourth Olympics at age 36 in 2008. This is the story of how he got there, the places he has seen and the people he has met along the way.
