Friday, September 20, 1991 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER EXTRACentral 5 SPORTS Organizations to give seniors day of fun at Museum Center Club weathers odds to win Series port. "We were up about five minutes, and began circling the Cincinnati area," Kindt "We i n sr LEAA. "But for the past three years, BHL has participated in Community Day, offering our seniors various activities. Last year, we sponsored a riverboat ride." Louis Valker, trust officer at Central Trust Bank, said LEAA members will provide transportation from the six shared homes. "Our group is made up of executives who previously served United Way as loaned executives," he said. Flessa said shared housing is a family-style option for independent older adults, each operated on non-profit basis. Residents pay a monthly fee. BHL helped develop shared housing standards for Cincinnati and founded the Home-Share Association in 1986. THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER About 70 seniors who reside in non-profit, shared homes throughout Greater Cincinnati will be chauffeured Saturday to the Museum Center at Union Terminal for United Way's fifth "Community Care Day." Retirees from Avondale, Deer Park, North College Hill, the West End, Westwood and White Oak will participate. Better Housing League joined with Loaned Executive Alumni Association (LEAA) to arrange the trip, luncheon and showing of Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets in the Omnimax Theater. Jim Flessa, housing information specialist for BHL, said this is the -first time his group worked with recalled, circled about an R r 11 i. Mil' I I I finally, alter a BY TERRY FLYNN The Cincinnati Enquirer Ater the Storm Club baseball team survived a scare with their flight out of Cincinnati and a visit from Hurricane Bob near Boston, manager Jim "Bubs" Kindt figured victory was in the stars for his squad of teen-age athletes. "When I heard that Hurricane Bob was on the way, I told the kids we couldn't lose," Kindt said. "After all, we're the Storm Club." In his 24th year since the organization of the Storm Club in 1968, Kindt made it clear that the Babe Ruth League 16-18 World Series championship was "the greatest thing that has happened to the organization. This is the best." There were moments, he admitted, when he wasn't certain Storm Club would ever finish the World Series. Problems began five minutes after their US Air flight took off from Greater CincinnatiNorthern Kentucky International Air- "The players stayed with families in the area, and the coaches stayed at a hotel," Kindt said. "We didn't have any water or electricity for two days and nights, and the ball park sustained some damage, including most of its lights. We couldn't play any more night games." Storm Club won its second game, 5-2, over Oregon, and overcame a 4-1 deficit with four sixth-inning runs to beat host Massachusetts, 5-4, in game three. San Gabriel came back for another try after winning five straight games in the loser's bracket. Despite a strong pitching performance from St. Xavier High School student Brandon Bremer, Storm Club gave up a rare unearned run in the seventh inning to lose, 4-3. Although this was Storm Club's first Babe Ruth World Series championship, the team has appeared in other amateur baseball world series, having captured numerous regional titles along the way. "There's a lot of tradition with this team," said Kindt, a sales representative who lives in White Oak. "We take a long look at the young men we take for the team. Storm Club is also self-supported; coaches and players raise the money to maintain the team and pay for trips. "Our kids work hard for what they get, and I think they appreciate it," Kindt said. That means Kindt and his coaches also work hard. Ken Eick, who has been with Storm Club since 1976; Dave Beller, who played for Kindt in 1969; and St. James (White Oak) School principal John Merritt are already conducting tryouts for next year's team. "We're holding tryouts the next two Sundays (Sept. 22 and Sept. 29) at Haubner Field in White Oak," Kindt said. Tryouts for players 17 and 18 begin at 2:30 p.m., with tryouts for 16-year-olds at 4:30 p.m. member of the Jm Kirdt crew had come back toward the rear of the plane, opened a plate in the floor and manually cranked down the landing gear, we were given instructions on what to do in the event of a crash landing." The trouble was in the plane's hydraulic system, but the craft landed without incident. The Storm Club group boarded another plane for Boston. After winning their first game, 4-1, over San Gabriel, Cal., the players practiced the next day and then headed for cover like everyone else while Hurricane Bob blew itself out in New England.
