Doug Wolter: The marvelous Windom baseball experience
It’s an uneventful afternoon here at The Globe headquarters in Worthington. It can be like that in early August, with summer sports petering out and high school fall sports not yet emerging. So naturally, my mind wanders. Here are a few thoughts that meandered through the empty...

Doug Wolter: Bummed about the bowling deficit in Worthington
Every time I drive past Oxford Bowl on my way to and from work, I give it a glance. And I think about how disappointing it is that it no longer does business. In a few months, Worthington will embark on another winter without bowling. And when I see today the empty Oxford Bowl forlornly...

Doug Wolter: Why do we play? For dreams of glory
I went to the Minnesota state girls softball tournament in North Mankato last week, and on the following Saturday followed that up with an appearance at the state track and field meet in St. Paul. I thought it was interesting that, before each tournament began, a statement was broadcast...

Doug Wolter: Tweets are making JCC track more fun
There are a lot of grownups who don’t understand Twitter. But Rafe York, track and field coach at Jackson County Central High School, has it down. And because he’s willing to push the envelope a bit, he’s making the sport more fun for his athletes. Here’s a sample:

Doug Wolter: It's time to do right for the Worthington gym program
BY DOUG WOLTER Daily Globe sports editor I suspect that when District 518 Superintendent John Landgaard said last weekend that if a new facility for the Worthington High School gymnastics program isn’t found, it will be cut, he meant to scare people into action. If so, it had better...

Doug Wolter: No arbitration for me, thanks
I don’t begrudge today’s best professional athletes earning multi-million dollar contracts. We’ve come a long way since Joe DiMaggio reached the first $100,000 contract in 1949. If you can get it, more power to ya. I’m a great believer in the law of supply and demand.

I hardly ever read any articles in the Minnesota State High School League Bulletin when it crosses my desk. Bulletin writers are always pounding the same themes -- participation, sportsmanship, responsibility, teamwork -- that kind of stuff. It’s not that I don’t believe in those...

Doug Wolter: Football battles to stay ahead of injuries
On Saturday while relaxing in a lawn chair at a family reunion, my wife’s cousin Gary and I discussed football. Gary wondered out loud why, when we were younger, NFL players seemed to suffer so few injuries compared to today. We opined that perhaps the change is largely due to the...

Doug Wolter: Trust me, the game has changed
I am suitably excited about the return of major league baseball, and as a lifelong fan I know the lure. Baseball is as regular as the coming of spring and — its disciples remind us — just as unchangeable. That’s not exactly true, of course. Baseball has undergone many important...
