Cape Gazette SPORTS & OUTDOORS TUESDAY, JUNE 20 - THURSDAY, JUNE 22, 2017 27 be the first Lacrosse Experience Night to introduce adaptive lacrosse to prospective ath- letes. This is the first of three Wednesday evening summer sessions before the start of the inaugural season in the fall. Go to atlanticlacrosse.org for con- tact information. Golf is a young man’s game, which is why there’s a senior tour. Senior golfers explain the sport to me, “It’s not about how far you hit it, it’s more about diminished focus.” The top three ranked players in the world, Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy and Jason Day failed to make the cut for the U.S. Open. Winner Brooks Koepka, just 27, earned $2 million with the victory. Talk about pedigree. His great-uncle is former National League MVP Dick Groat, still alive at age 86. Groat was an All-American basketball player at Duke and played a season in the NBA. Groat played shortstop on the World Champion Pirates in 1960 and Cardinals in 1964. Groat later played two seasons for the Phillies in 1965-66 under Manager Gene Mauch. I was at a game and saw Groat throw his bat at the ball on a waste pitch on a hit-and-run, the ball went into fair territory and everyone was safe. Manager Mauch threw a happy conniption in the dug- out. Groat was the cool custom- er you wanted on your team. “Camps for Gramps” is a new idea I have for summertime diversion. I’d like to be a life coach for people who already lived a long life, low impact, a lot of wading and dead man float competitions. Ask any ocean lifeguard how many times they’ve been ready to rescue before gramps rolls over then blows water into the air like a bipolar beluga. Go on now, git!  Fredman Continued from page 26 SOURCE: MEARSONLINE.COM Dick Groat is the great-uncle of U.S. Open winner Brooks Koepka.

Youth soccer camp set for Aug. 7-11 A free week-long High Power Youth Soccer Camp will be of- fered at the First Baptist Church of Lewes from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Monday, Aug. 7 through Fri- day, Aug. 11 for youth ages 5-11. Participants will learn soccer skills, teamwork and get lots of exercise. Most importantly, however, each day there will be a lesson from the Bible that will focus on one aspect of the good news found in Jesus Christ. The camp is for athletes and non-athletes alike, for those who know soc- cer inside and out, and for those who have never touched a ball. There’s something for every- one (including the occasional water balloon fight). For more information or to register, go to FBCSoccer.org.
