When Darrel Chaney was growing up, Cubs Hall of Famer Ernie Banks was his hero.
Former Major League Baseball player and 1966 Morton grad Darrel Chaney has plenty of stories to tell about his outstanding prep career and his 11 years with the Cincinnati Reds and Atlanta Braves.
Beware of young pitchers traded near the deadline by the Atlanta Braves.
ATLANTA | The Atlanta Braves boosted their rotation and added a right-handed bat to their bench Monday night by acquiring left-hander Paul Maholm and outfielder Reed Johnson from the Cubs.
NEW YORK | Craig Kimbrel overpowered hitters with his rocket right arm, then overwhelmed rivals in the NL Rookie of the Year voting.
CHICAGO | Jair Jurrjens pitched in and out of trouble for 6 1-3 innings, Dan Uggla and Freddie Freeman homered and the Atlanta Braves beat the Cubs 3-0 Monday night for their fifth-straight win.
HOUSTON | Pinch hitter Brian Bogusevic hit a grand slam in the ninth inning to propel the Houston Astros to 6-5 win over the Cubs on Tuesday night and break a season-long seven game losing streak.
ATLANTA | Dan Uggla was quick to acknowledge he never thought he'd have a hitting streak as long as 33 games.
His faith has been tested many times, but John Pappas was never a doubter.
SCHERERVILLE | If there were another Jim Thome in the house, Tom Couston would have likely spotted him.
