Hi, my name is Andrew (or Drew) Rosten. My brother started this blog for me as a Christmas present. Consider it a gift that keeps on giving. I am recently a part-time sports clerk at the Herald & Review in Decatur, but am sometimes asked to report on sporting events in the Bloomington-Normal area. I graduated from Clinton High School and Illinois State University in Normal four years later with a degree in journalism. In my senior year at ISU, I was a sports reporter for the Daily Vidette.
HOIC SOFTBALL TOURNAMENT UPDATE -- At this point, the Blue Ridge/Fieldcrest game has been moved to 2 p.m. and the GCMS/Tri-Valley game to 3:30 p.m. The consolation and third-place games have been cancelled. Stay tuned to the Sports Thread for further updates.
