Monday, February 1, 2016 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

No matter the level of the sport, hockey players have always been considered a different breed of athlete.

From beer leagues right up to the NHL level, there may not be more camaraderie than inside a locker room at an ice rink.

So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone the overwhelming response to this year’s Winter Classic, an outdoor hockey event held at the Bethlehem Municipal Ice Rink which helps support the Lehigh Valley Polar Bears, a local, special hockey team.

‘Living the Fantasy’ must-see for fantasy lovers

Thursday, October 1, 2015 by The Press in Sports

From September through December, my Sundays go as my fantasy football teams go.

My twin, soon-to-be 4-year-old boys, are just getting into watching the sport, and unfortunately have already picked up some key words associated with my bad days on the fantasy football gridiron.

I’ll admit, I’m probably way more into NFL games than I should be from a fantasy perspective.

Every yard gained by my players, or an opponent’s, consumes my mind and can sometimes change my mood in an instant. I often run into walls watching the NFL Red Zone on my phone.

Wednesday, June 4, 2014 by SCOTT PAGEL in Sports

Lehigh West Bethlehem Connie Mack coach Keith Lehman is all about his kids having fun playing summer baseball. And if they can add some hardware to their trophy case, well, that's nice too.

And they've added plenty over the last three years, winning two Lehigh Valley titles in that span, including last season over Nazareth.

This year, the team is off to a 3-0 start after a recent, close victory over Fullerton, 4-2.
