Fresh from the Arizona desert, Hal’s home for his daily Starbucks and a whole new batch of questions from Press Pros readers. Opening day may be three weeks away, but the “Famer” is in mid-season form. Read his latest (on you latest) in today’s Press Pros inside feature.
He’s one of the most important and popular players in the Reds organization, and you wouldn’t even know him if you met him on the street…or at Great American Ballpark!
The Latest From The Desert…One of the most popular of recent features on Press Pros…questions on the Reds and baseball from Press Pros readers for hall of fame columnist Hal McCoy. In this edition: “head hunters”, too many teams, homesick for Florida spring training, old men and “bad” cigars, and…does Zack Cozart get enough respect as one of the game’s best young shortstops? Read more in today’s Press Pros inside feature.
“Yosemite” Sam…As far as he’s concerned Reds reliever Sam LeCure doesn’t mind his role, whatever it is…start, relieve, long, short, setup…as long as he’s asked to pitch. And best, he’s willing to earn what he gets. Read the latest from Hal McCoy in Goodyear, Arizonz, in today’s Press Pros inside feature.

How Did We Lose?…A lot of people would like to know, after the Flyers squandered a 10-point lead late and missed two free throws with no time remaining that would have given Dayton a win over the Temple Owls at UD Arena Saturday. It didn’t turn out that way. One you had to see to believe, from Hal McCoy in today’s Press Pros inside feature.
UD’s Kevin Dillard scores two of his game-high 23 points down the stretch Wednesday to lead UD to a 60-54 win over St. Joe’s at the Arena. For the diminished Flyers it brought closure to a frustrating week and some optimism for the final weeks of the season. Read more in Hal McCoy’s inside feature in today’s Press Pros.
Friday Hoops on Press Pros…Sidney @ Troy, 7:15 pm, on streaming audio, and listen live on FM 107.3 while you watch the game.
The latest batch of questions for Reds writer Hal McCoy, the good stuff…on Chapman starting, no love for Kyle Lohse, cigars, vintage beer, and the new model of success in baseball. Here’s a hint: It’s not the Cubs! Read more in today’s Press Pros inside feature.
