SENTINEL TRIBUNE INSIDE Wednesda August 3 2011 Pae 3 Century Farm- From page1 MONDAY MORNING BRUNCH In 1972, Eunice won the National Bethel Series Bible Concepts contest in Madison, WI, with the highest score attained in Bethel's ten year history. She then taught this Bible study series at the Grace Church and was an elementary teacher and an adult education instructor. She also enjoyed assisting with tractor driving on the farm, but she didn't "do COWS." Run and Eunice are now retired. They love visiting their family, and enjoy traveling. Their farmland is rented on shares to two brothers, Russ and Steve Gundermann. Ron and Eunice both enjoy seeing the crops grow each year, and are happy when the harvesting brings a good yield! Daughter, Cathie, and her husband, Paul Maeyaert, are both attorneys in the Twin Cities area. Their other daughter, Christie, is an English teacher, and husband, Warren Wicks a mechanical engineer in the Des Moines area. Both couples have a son and a daughter, so Ronald and Eunice have four grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. Run and Eunice are proud of the fact that their land has stayed in the Christensen name for 100 years. Ronald has lived 71 of his 73 years on the farm. They have seen many changes in farming, and on their farm. One change was their barn was destroyed by wind a few years ago, so the farmyard has a differ- ent look from yesteryear. Also, since one of their renter's raises sheep, they now hear "Baahing" instead of "Mooing." In spite of hard work and difficulties, the joys and fond memories of the years on the Christensen farm outweigh the trials! Farming, with all its ups and downs, is still a marvelous way of life for the Christensen's. NOW 50% OF Blyleven From Page 1 Also during my walks through downtown Cooperstown, I experienced moments that will last a lifetime, visiting with the likes of Jim Kaat, Yogi Berra, Gaylord Perry, Tom Seaver, Don Sutton, Ron Guidry, Rollie Fingers, Ozzie Smith, Tony Gwynn and Paul Molitor, to name just a few. Saturday night included a Parade of Legends, featuring Hall of Fame members riding through downtown Cooperstown. The culmination of the trip came on Sunday with the induction ceremony itself at the Clark Sports Complex. Sitting roughly 50 yards from the stage, I watched with much anticipation, and when Blyleven walked to the podium to receive his Hall of Fame plaque and give his induction speech a deafening cheer broke out. He began by looking down at his mother and said, "I love you mommy." He looked over to his family and expressed his love for their support. He turned to the crowd and acknowledged his sincere thanks for their attendance. He thanked those in attendance who had an impact on his profes- sional career like Kaat and Jim Perry. He also thanked the late Killebrew, Puckett, Willie Stargell, Bob Feller, and Chuck Tanner for helping guide his career. "These guys are all looking down on me today, along with my dad Jo," Blyleven said. "They all had a huge impact on my baseball career. They all mentored me." With Sandy Koufax looking on, he credit- ed the fellow Hall member for developing his curveball. "Sandy, I learned the curveball from you. I listened to Dodgers' broadcaster Vin Scully on the radio," said Blyleven. "He described your curveball, the drop, called back then, I always visualized the rotation of the baseball and once I did get older and developed it by finding the right grip on the baseball and utilizing the seams of the ball to make it spin and curve, so thank you Sandy Koufax." Following the induction ceremony on Sunday afternoon, the installation of the Hall of Fame plaques took place at 7 p.m. in the Hall of Fame Museum's plaque gallery. Blyleven has come a long ways profes- sionally, from being drafted in the third round of the 1969 amateur draft, to becoming the youngest pitcher in the majors when the Twins called him up June 2, 1970; to cur- rently being a member on FOX Sports North as a Twins broadcaster with Dick Bremer his broadcast partner since 1996. Bremer also attended the induction ceremonies with his family. To Bert, Roberto Alomar, Pat Gillick, other Hall of Fame members, and to Cooperstown in general, "you are hear by circled" for pro- viding baseball memories that will last a lifetime. You must include Sal's Pizzeria & Restaurant, Hey, Getcha Hot Dog in the base- ment of Mickey's, and the Neptune Diner in Oneonta, New York, as part of your visit to Cooperstown. The 2012 induction ceremony is scheduled for July 22. Take home a piece of history with you.
