When Tom Hanson was a young boy in the early 1960s, he used to run around the baseball field in Farnham Park while his grandfather coached the Hatch Middle School team. "The field was configured differently then," Hanson said, standing on the same patch of ground off Park Boulevard. Lots of things have changed in the half-century since Tom Hanson used to attend the games directed by his grandfather, Ray Hanson, near the end of a teaching and coaching career that began in Camden in 1919.

As head football coach at Haddon Township High School in the mid-2000s, Frank L. Trautz worked the field like a chessboard. "He was the classic chess player in dealing with his offense," Nelson Epley recalled. If the opposing defense "gave us a certain look, he enjoyed tweaking around," countering with a formation of his own. "We coached together for close to 20 years" as assistant football coaches at Haddon Township, Epley said, and then "I coached under him when he was a head coach.

Buena baseball coach Harry Grose confirmed that his team beat Pleasantville, 52-3, Thursday. Grose wasn't happy about it. Nobody was happy about it. Grose said he felt "terrible. " He probably feels worse if he bothered to read some of the reaction to the score on Twitter and other social-media sites. He's been getting beaten up pretty good. I won't defend Grose on this one. Wish he would have found a way to hold down the score. But I understand why he felt he was in a bind.
