It's funny how things work out and the connections. I clicked your link and saw a reference to Ed Mathey, the NIU coach. Seeing that a click went off in my head, my brother played high school baseball with Ed Mathey. Quick Google search revealed that the NIU baseball coach Ed Mathey is the same guy who played with my brother in h.s. and also used to play Nerf baseball with us in our backyard. That's so funny.
