  • Felix & the Field Crew0

    While many of the fans descending upon the Williamsport area for the 2018 Little League Baseball World Series were first-time visitors, Mother Nature had other ideas. Not satisfied with the precipitation deluge she had previously sent our way, the days leading up to, and including, the early days of the youthful tournament featured an unwelcomed

  • Think Before You Send0

    In the early stages of my journalistic endeavors, I was cautioned by an instructor to always remember that journalism, whether it be in print or video form, may be the only profession where every word written or spoken was ‘out there’ to be scrutinized by public consumption. Once printed or uttered, the words you have

  • South’s Minor Girls Come Home Champions0

    The world’s best 16 Little League Baseball teams are enjoying the fulfillment of a common dream shared by all regardless of geographic location — they’ve made it to Williamsport. While their arrival has been much heralded and documented, for a group of softball-playing young ladies — they had to leave the South Williamsport site of

  • Number 5 – Tom Speicher0

    Ready or not, it’s that time of the year again when the world comes to Williamsport. The always well-attended Grand Slam Parade steps off August 15th, followed by the opening game of the 2018 Little League Baseball World Series on Thursday. Growing up just a few blocks from Little League’s stadium complex, and spending 17

  • Jiving with Jones0

    One of the great joys of journalistic endeavors is the access to talk sports with athletes and professionals well-versed in their field with whom you otherwise wouldn’t have that same opportunity. One of those occasions is the annual visit Penn State football play-by-play announcer, Steve Jones, makes to Williamsport to address the local Penn State

  • Locally Speaking0

    During a recent shopping trip, a conversation with an acquaintance turned towards the Webb Weekly. “I read your column, but why don’t you write more about national sports stories?” I was asked. The rationale for the general content of our weekly visits harkens back to the very beginning of the Webb Weekly when Jim Webb

  • Beyond the Dugout0

    Imagine, if you will, that you have a skill that has attracted the attention of an international employer. You are recruited, accept the job, and soon find yourself in a foreign land where you know no one, can’t speak the language, are unfamiliar with the local customs, and face everyday challenges ordering food. Welcome to

  • The ‘Wizard’ Continues Chamber Tradition0

    Recently I was watching a TV show that was highlighting some of the great baseball announcers of the past. Included was a segment from the 1985 NLCS playoff between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Los Angeles Dodgers made by Hall of Fame play-by-play announcer Jack Buck describing a walk-off home run hit by light-hitting

  • Datres, Johnson & Smith0

    Come on now — enough grumbling about the weather. Yes, it’s July, and its beginning has been hot, but just think back several months ago when we were ready to skin Punxsutawney Phil and were cursing the Ides of March and longing for spring’s arrival. You couldn’t tell it by the preponderance of NBA news

  • A Holey Bucket0

    Admittedly, as a big fan of old country music, I have a new-found affinity for a 1949 Hank Williams ditty “My Bucket’s Got a Hole In It.” The title of the whimsical tune instantly popped in my head during a recent midwestern trip devised to check off one of my ‘bucket list’ destinations, the College
