Old school at its finest

You don’t have to be a sports fan to love New Hampton’s two-time champs

Game days begin early for the New Hampton baseball team, especially when they’re hitting the road for an away game.Batting practice, or simply BP to those who play the game, begins at 1 p.m., and despite the fact that the players often times won’t get home until midnight or so, the Chickasaws, almost to a man, arrive 30 to 45 minutes early.It’s why you don’t have to be a sports fan to appreciate what New Hampton accomplished on Tuesday night when the Chickasaws routed Waukon 16-0 and 14-0 to claim their second straight Northeast Iowa Conference baseball championship.“This group, these kids are baseball players,” New Hampton coach Cory McDonald said. “They really enjoy playing the game, and it shows.”For the complete story see the 7/8/2016 New Hampton Tribune.
