Expect some frosty games in Fall Classic

TERRE HAUTE — It’s October and time for the Fall Classic.

Based on some weather reports, the weather could be winter-like for some of the games between St. Louis and Boston, but that’s nothing new. And it won’t hamper the play on the diamond.

The Red Sox and Cardinals are meeting for the fourth time in the Series. St. Louis won in seven games in 1946 and 1967 but Boston swept the Redbirds in their last meeting in 2004.

Pitchers  who possibly could be keys to success for the teams are St. Louis rookie phenom Michael Wacha, who was 2-0 with an 0.00 ERA in the NL Championship Series, and Koji Uehara, who won one game and saved three for Boston in the AL Championship Series.

Boston rates a slight edge since the AL has home-field advantage due to All-Star success, but we’ll take the Cardinals to win in six games.

• Honor for Adam — Adam LaGrange will be one of the golfers honored at the Indiana Golf Foundation banquet tonight at the Meridian Hills Country Club in Indianapolis.

The Terre Haute North senior will be recognized as junior boys player of the year, an honor he earned with his play in state events.

LaGrange was medalist in boys state qualifying at Harrison Hills, then qualified for match play in the big field and reached the Elite Eight.

He ranked second in Masters point totals with three top-five finishes, had a top-five finish in a Pepsi Mountain Dew tournament and finished 11th in the Hoosier Junior Championships played earlier in the month at Columbus.

Former PGA Tour player Chris Smith and PGA President Ted Bishop will be inducted into the Hall of Fame.

Bishop has been on the staff at the Legends of Indiana Course since it opened. Before that, he was at the Phil Harris Course in Linton where he began a major tournament in honor of Harris that attracted top professional and college athletes and coaches.
