My grandpa’s book


Softball Book

Hi guys! I know this isn’t a typical blog post about our building, but I have something very near and dear to my heart I’d like to share!

This here is my grandpa’s 4th book he has written. Yep, that’s him on the cover of his 447 page book. Just like his little introduction says, is “about fastpitch softball in Ohio – youth, high school, college and men. You’ll read about outstanding college coaches, about great players, and many stories from umpires and others associated with this great game. You’ll read some of the most off-the-wall tales you’ve ever heard plus heart-wrenching, touching, human-interest experiences and everything in between”. I edited a couple of his chapters, and just laughed so hard.

I am so proud of him for accomplishing the finale of yet another book. In all of his experiences with umpiring, sports writing, sports reporting, and anything high school sports–he is truly Mr. High School Sports. He has put so much time, effort and love into writing this book, he deserves to sell so many!

He is selling them for $29.95, which also includes a personal autograph in each book. If you are interested in purchasing this book, you can email him at Or you can send your name, address with city, state, zip, autographed to, amount enclosed to: Jim Wharton, PO Box 68, Marengo, OH 43334. He accepts cash, check or money order.

Oh, and be on the lookout, he may be starting his own blog!
