In another time and another place, Dennis Corapi would have saddle sores. For 27 years, he has participated in what cowboys would call “team roping.” Out west, that's a competition. Here in Hagerstown, it's considered Little League baseball. Corapi is the manager of Federal's 11-12 All-Stars. He's been in the position before, but this time, it's different. “This is my last rodeo,” Corapi said on Thursday. After 27 years of working with young and upcoming baseball talent at Federal, Corapi will be walking into the sunset after this “rodeo.” If this were the movies, it's Corapi's “High Noon.” For now, he stands five minutes before the clock strikes 12. He is there to help a new batch of players learn the game he loves while achieving some success to feel good about.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Professional basketball player Shaquille O'Neal can make a free throw about half the time. During a free throw, there are no opposing players blocking the shot and the shot is made with the hands. Now imagine trying to drop a basketball in a 55-gallon drum using the wide bucket on a 5,500-pound skid loader. A skid loader is a small vehicle with a bucket attachment to carry dirt, gravel or similar loads. For the average person, the first obstacle would be figuring out how to operate a skid loader.

BEDINGTON, W.Va. - Last October, when Nathan Catlett broke his neck bull riding at a southern New York event, he thought that was the end of his professional bull-riding career. The Berkeley County native's mindset about winning a Professional Bull Riders' championship - the big leagues of bull riding - changed course to focus on helping to start a junior rodeo association and spending more time with his family. Then a good medical report renewed his hope. So about a month ago in Virginia, he started riding again.

WASHINGTON COUNTY - High atop a brown mare, Couy Griffin meandered along Virginia Avenue between Williamsport and Hagerstown. His miniature mule walked nearby, packing along food, camping gear and the Gospel of John printed in small blue books. Griffin is on a mission from God, spreading the message of Jesus Christ. "I just hand out the Word," he said Monday. Griffin, 32, of Reserve, N.M., looks like an unlikely messenger, wearing a white cowboy hat, scuffed boots, dark jeans and chaps.

Eager anglers stood elbow-to-elbow around Red Run Lake on Saturday hoping to catch one of the 600 trout during the first annual John Kahl Memorial Trout Rodeo. Waynesboro Area Senior High School senior Grant Calimer came up with the idea for the trout rodeo in Rouzerville for his senior project. "For your senior project, you can job shadow, you can build something or you can do something for the community. I decided to do this, because I wanted to try to instill a lifelong love of fishing into kids," Grant said.
