The Toledo Amateur Baseball Federation has been awarded the 2010 National Amateur Baseball Federation College World Series at the NABF annual national meetings in Annapolis, Maryland in early November.
 
The NABF CWS will be held Aug. 5-8, 2010 at Ned Skeldon Stadium and three other Toledo-area sites for the sixth time in the past seven years. LineDrive Sportz, based at the Lucas County Recreation Center, will be title sponsor and the national tournament will be internet broadcast by WRSCradio.com. For information, call City of Toledo recreation director Shawn Sobel at 419-936-3887.

WRSCradio.com sports commentator Mark Reeves not only won the 2009 Press Soothsayer championship by having the best record picking high school, college, and professional football games, he also set a new all-time record.
 
When the Bowling Green Falcons defeated the Buffalo Bulls on a last minute touchdown in a nationally-televised football game, it sent Reeves over the top. Reeves finished 120-28 in his picks, which at 81.1 percent is one-tenth of a percentage point better than the 81.0 mark set by the sports editor writing this column when soothsayer picks first began in 2001.
